Progressive has good roadside assistance for cars, motorcycles, RVs and even some towing vehicles. Roadside assistance is optional coverage that customers can add to a Progressive auto insurance policy to protect against non-accident events, like breakdowns. Progressive’s 24/7 roadside assistance covers towing, jump-starting, replacing batteries, winching, replacing flat tires, locksmithing, and delivering fuel. The phone number for Progressive roadside assistance is 1-800-776-2778.
The cost of Progressive’s roadside assistance coverage depends on where you live, what type of car you drive, and other factors. It averages around $16 a year, which is less than the cost of third-party memberships like AAA. But you will have to carry comprehensive and collision coverage to get roadside assistance, which adds to your overall price.
To get roadside assistance from Progressive, call the main customer service line (1-800-776-4737) to speak with an agent. If you have a policy already, you can log in online to add roadside assistance. Either way, coverage may not take effect the same day. It’s also important to note that there may be a limit to the number of roadside events your policy covers, and coverage is subject to any other details stated in your policy. That could mean service charges for certain roadside events, like being towed over a certain number of miles or to specific garages.
