What should you do if your car gets stuck in a ditch and you don't have roadside assistance?

"I was wondering what to do if my car got stuck in a ditch and I didn't have roadside assistance.

What would I do?"

“Before you call a tow company and pay the full rate, you should first check with your car insurance. Some car insurance companies have roadside assistance on their policy that you may not know about.
If they don’t have it, the next step is to check with your credit cards. Many credit cards, including any card with the Visa logo, will offer some form of roadside assistance, so it’s worth it to check.
To avoid a potentially sticky situation, you may just want to add a towing and labor coverage option to your existing policy.”
