What roadside assistance should I get if I have an old car and I drive through areas with no cell phone coverage?
"I have a car with around 300,000 miles on it. I'm often driving through rural and mountainous areas because I'm a photographer and avid hiker.
What roadside assistance program should I get for remote areas with little or no cell phone coverage?"

“Becoming a AAA member or getting insurance from them (which includes roadside assistance) is probably your best bet. They have the best response times and best coverage area among providers.
As far as no cell phone coverage, you may want to consider getting a CB radio in your vehicle. They’re inexpensive and can save your life if you’re in a dangerous situation where you’re stranded in a remote area.”

Should I raise my liability insurance limit to $1 million if it doesn't cost that much more?
I currently have 100/300/100 liability insurance. When I started to shop around, I found that I could increase this to $1 million/$1 million/$500,000 for about $10 a month extra. Is this worth it?

What would be better, re-rating my current policy or switching to a new carrier?
I've been with my current carrier for five years and pay $500 for six months. I recently got a quote from another carrier that is significantly lower, $300 for six months, and it had higher coverage levels. Should I ask my current carrier to re-rate my policy instead of switching?
