When your car breaks down, it’s comforting to know help is on the way

Back in the days before cell phones, if your car broke down on an isolated road and you were a long way from a payphone (remember those?), it could be hours before the situation got sorted out.

These days, life is a bit easier. Roadside Assistance services reduce much of the stress that comes with a breakdown – and they’re just a phone call away. Most Australian car insurance providers offer Roadside Assistance, so it’s worth shopping around.

What does it cover?

Roadside Assistance packages come in all shapes, sizes and prices, so what’s covered will vary. Normally you’ll be assisted in most of the following situations:

Flat tyre changing

Sometimes you can safely change your own tyre and be on your way. At other times, professional help can come in handy.

Towing

When your car has broken down or you’ve got a flat that can’t be safely changed where you’ve stopped, a towing service is extremely useful.

Jump-starting a battery

You may not have jumper cables with you or you may not be sure about how to safely use them.

And keep in mind if you have a car that was built in the last 5 years, jump starting it could risk damaging the whole wiring system. In these circumstances, it’s a big help if a technician can come out and get your car going again.

Running out of fuel

Some of us don’t like to see the fuel gauge dip below a quarter of a tank. Others prefer to ‘live on the edge’ and leave it until the last minute to hunt down a petrol station.

If you do run out of fuel and the nearest pump is who-knows-where, Roadside Assistance will normally include an emergency fuel delivery so you can get on your way.

It’s embarrassing, inconvenient and happens more often than we like to admit: locking ourselves out of our own cars.

Locked out of your car

It’s embarrassing, inconvenient and happens more often than we like to admit: locking ourselves out of our own cars.

Fortunately, Roadside Assistance typically includes a locksmith service so you can get back into your vehicle and get moving again if your keys have been lost, stolen or left in the car (this is surprisingly easy to do when you’re juggling keys, wallet and five bags of groceries around the boot).
