What Does 24/7 Roadside Assistance Cover?

At American Auto Insurance, our 24/7 roadside assistance plan covers all the basics, from tire changes to gasoline delivery. Our available services include:

  • Toll-free emergency hotline: Rest easy with toll-free calling. Our emergency hotline is available to all members 24/7, meaning you'll be able to reach a member of our service team any time of the day or night.
  • Towing services: Whether your car won't start or you need to move your vehicle urgently, you'll be able to access our towing services and have your vehicle towed to a nearby garage of your choice so that you can calmly assess your next steps.
  • Flat tire assistance: Flat tires happen to everyone. Whether you hit a pothole or have damaged your tire, we'll be on standby to assist you for all your tire-related needs, from changing your tire to airing it up.
  • Lock out assistance: There's nothing worse than the sinking realization that you've locked your keys inside your car with no way to get them out. No need to worry — a locksmith will be able to arrive shortly to help you get into your vehicle.
  • Battery jump starts: If you've turned your key in the ignition and your car just won't start, you may need a jump start for your battery. You won't need to wait around for a good Samaritan to help you out; as a member, you'll be able to receive battery jump starts around the clock.
  • Accident services: If you've found yourself in the unfortunate aftermath of an accident, our hotline can help you to move your vehicle to a garage or any other location.
  • Gasoline delivery: You thought you could make it to the gas station — unfortunately, you were wrong. You don't need to stay stranded on an empty tank; our roadside assistance services can deliver gasoline straight to your location to get you to the closest gas station for a refill.

How Does 24/7 Roadside Assistance Work in Illinois?

Our service hotline is available any time of the day or night. All you need to do is call the toll-free number and provide your American Auto Insurance membership number, and one of our friendly team members will get you exactly what you need as quickly as possible.

When it comes to coverage and payments, total or partial financial coverage will depend on the exact plan you purchase and the particular benefits and features it offers.

The Benefits of Having 24/7 Roadside Assistance

24/7 roadside assistance is extremely valuable for a variety of reasons, whether you're looking to save money or are simply wanting peace of mind. Knowing you have roadside assistance coverage allows you to get behind the wheel without worrying about the what-ifs — you won't find yourself stranded with no options or help. Additionally, having access to roadside assistance is much simpler to navigate than finding services independently. Having an expert take care of the tough stuff is invaluable during the stressors of a roadside emergency.

Additionally, with the low monthly cost of a roadside assistance plan, you save big bucks in the case that you find yourself needing roadside services, such as a tow truck or repairs. Paying for these services independently can cost over 100 dollars. Having a roadside assistance plan allows you to avoid these large fees. Finally, roadside assistance prevents you from being stranded in a place that may be unsafe or that you don't recognize. A vehicle malfunction is already dangerous enough — you don't need to worry about figuring it out alone.
