Progressive roadside assistance costs around $16 annually, though exact prices may vary depending on the state and the vehicles that are covered. Progressive roadside assistance covers common emergency services, such as flat tires, dead batteries, lock-out services, and mechanical failures, among others.
Progressive Roadside Assistance Includes:
- Winching service within 100 feet of a road
- Battery jump-starts
- Fuel delivery
- Battery charging for electric cars
- Locksmith services
- Flat tire change
- On-scene labor
Progressive roadside assistance is meant to help drivers in need of immediate rescue, but it usually does not pay for the underlying problem, such as engine repairs or a battery that needs replacing. Additionally, the exact number of incidents covered by a Progressive roadside assistance plan will vary by state and policy.
Purchasing roadside assistance from your car insurance company is usually less expensive than a motor club membership from a company such as AAA. However, it might not provide as much coverage.
