Roadside Assistance/Motor Clubs/Memberships
Although the added benefits of filling tires with nitrogen (versus air that already contains 78 percent
nitrogen) is debatable, it turns out that the Nitrofill service offered through dealerships here in
Athens and around the country comes with roadside assistance and is less expensive than the other auto
clubs (unless you happen to have an AT&T cell phone):
I have mine through Allstate and it seems to be the same as AAA.
- We have roadside assistance program through Allstate; they have more than one plan -- different
benefits for different price -- it's not cheap, I think we pay about $12/month. We have only used
them in-town -- husband has old car that has died twice w/in the last few months. He said they have
arrived w/in 30 minutes and taken car to the repair place, no problems. But we don't have any
experience out of town.
I've had AAA for years and love it. I've been towed twice and had numerous tire changes - all for free
[other than the yearly fee]. I highly recommend them.
I enrolled my daughter in the roadside assistance plan with her cell phone when she started driving.
We use AT&T and I believe it is 2.99 a month. I am embarrassed to say how often she has used it
to have her keys unlocked. . . . it's been very handy. Well worth the cost and she can use it even
when she is riding with someone else as long as she calls from her cell phone.
