    Do I Need to Get Roadside Assistance for My Rental Car?

    roadside assistance

    For the ultimate safe driving experience, you may consider adding Extended (or Premium) Roadside Assistance to your car rental booking. Take note that this is an optional assistance service that offers coverage at a reasonable additional daily charge.

    Roadside Assistance is a form of protection that helps renters when their car hire breaks down. It means that professional assistance is just a phone call away when you have an unexpected emergency or problem with your hire car. In the event of a vehicle breakdown, your rental provider will be able to provide you quick and reliable assistance.

    Towing service

    In the unlikely event that the roadside assistance personnel is unable to fix your vehicle, they will need to tow your vehicle to a mechanic. Please note that depending on your Roadside Assistance provider, there may be a limitation on towing distances. Roadside Assistance Fees may also apply. It is highly recommended to check your rental policy for details at the time of pick up.
