You don’t normally wonder, “Do I need roadside assistance?” until it’s obvious that you do. Here are five reasons why roadside assistance is important to have, and ways it provides peace of mind.

Quick repairs are made easy.

Your car may only need a minor repair and the technician can often address those issues on the spot—saving you time, money and all that’s involved in having your vehicle towed.

You prefer driving less-traveled roads, even at night.

You may enjoy driving roads other than the main ones, but what if you run out of gas or get a flat tire? You may not know how far you’ll be from a repair shop that’s part of the nationwide network of AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities.

Vehicle repair isn’t your thing.

Let’s face it: Changing a flat tire or switching out a car battery isn’t for everyone. So, if you’re not confident in your abilities, you’re much better off calling in a pro.

You want to save money.

The cost for an entire year of protection with a roadside assistance program may be the same—or even less—than what you’d pay for a one-time tow or locksmith service.

The power of the name.

AAA saves you the hassle of contacting and vetting nearby repair shops. The AAA Approved Auto Repair program has a large network of skilled, reliable shops that have already been vetted, so you can get in and out faster.
