The company Auto Advantage provides roadside assistance services to consumers 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The one plan available from this companies to members provides basic services, such as towing and discounts of all kinds. Other companies often charge hidden fees for including other family members on a roadside assistance plan, but this company doesn’t charge for including all of your immediate family members. As mentioned, however, there is just the one roadside assistance plan, and there are some extra benefits missing that other companies often include.

Remember, there are no additional charges for adding immediate family members to your plan. In fact, you are covered when you’re simply a passenger riding with someone else. As you can tell, the passenger clause is a valued benefit and just part of the way people can save money on roadside assistance coverage.

You will notice that the roadside assistance plan available from Auto Advantage is more costly than what most other companies offer. In fact, it costs almost three times more than what’s available from AAA, and it’s more than double what the average cost is for one of these plans nationwide. While that is a disappointment, you want to know why, and you want to know more of the specifics about coverage available through the roadside assistance plan from Auto Advantage.

It was mentioned that you are entitled to many basic roadside assistance services when you sign up with Auto Advantage. The company will deliver fuel, jump start your vehicle’s battery, provide basic towing and also handle a flat tire for you. There is also both home and auto lockout services available to members. The lockout services can definitely save you some money if you find yourself in one of those situations.

There are additional charges if you use roadside assistance more than three times in one year. This may sound great, but it’s actually a low number of service calls in comparison to other companies out there. In fact, the number of yearly service calls allowed by companies is usually four, sometimes five.

While there is just one service plan, there are some premium services available to members, including some enticing discounts. The company doesn’t offer an app for mobile devices, but they can get your location through GPS technology after you call them.

This roadside assistance program doesn’t include trailers, motorcycles or RVs. Members aren’t eligible for premium services like legal fee reimbursement and reimbursement for interrupted travel expenses. This omission of coverage for people’s cars breaking down when they are far from home is a little disappointing.

When you need help, there is a FAQ page, customer service number and of course you can always reach the company by email, too. One other customer service option available is a hotline that puts you in touch with an expert mechanic to help you talk out auto repair issues.

Towing and emergency roadside assistance is available from Auto Advantage on a basic level. The plan is considered to be affordable, even though it was shown to be more than many other companies. Remember that the lockout services included are a great benefit, and remember that you can add immediate family members to your membership without paying additional fees. It is quite noticeable, however, that some premium services are missing from this plan and are available from other companies.
