Roadside Assistance Cost & Benefits

With American Family emergency roadside assistance you get help paying for service and support when your car can’t make it to the shop — because, while we all wish for smooth travels, once in a while we encounter a bump in the road.

So whether your car breaks down, you run out of gas or lock your keys in the car — our affordable Emergency Roadside Assistance coverage helps get you back on the road. Let’s take a look at how it can help you.

What Does Roadside Assistance Cover?

What exactly do you get with roadside assistance from American Family? The following services are included with your plan, but it’s probably the peace of mind that’s the greatest value!

Easy towing. One call to 1-800-MYAMFAM and you’ll have a tow truck at your disposal to take your vehicle to the nearest shop to get the repairs it needs.

Battery jump. Do you always forget which clamp goes on the positive and negative terminals when jumping a battery? Well, there’s no need to worry with roadside assistance — our experts will take care of it.

Tire servicing. Our professionals will expertly patch or change your tire to get you rolling again. While the cost of the tire or the patch isn’t covered, their expertise and labor is!

Deliver gas and oil. We’ll deliver gas or oil to you if you happen to run out while on the road — everyone forgets or pushes it a little too far once in a while. Although emergency roadside assistance will not pay for fuel or oil, they will bring it to you so you can get moving again.

Dependable locksmiths. No matter how you got locked out, with roadside assistance a trusted locksmith will help you get back in. The service is covered, but doesn’t include the cost of replacing your locks or keys, if that’s necessary.

Roadside repairs. A knowledgeable mechanic will meet you wherever your car breaks down and provide up to one hour of labor to get your vehicle up and running again.

How Much Is Roadside Assistance?

Emergency roadside service is a cost-efficient add-on to your existing auto insurance policy with American Family. The cost of roadside assistance is between $10 and $20 a year — definitely worth the price! Each one of the services above could cost you more than this add-on policy, so it pays to be proactive. In addition to the financial savings, the peace of mind that comes with 24/7 help when you really need it is priceless.
