Why Emergency Roadside Assistance Is Right for You

Car stranded on the highway? Stalled in your driveway? No matter where you find yourself, American Family Insurance’s emergency roadside service is always ready to help. With it, all it takes is a single call to 1-800-MYAMFAM or the tap of a button on our MyAmFam app to get you back on the road.

What Do I Get With Emergency Roadside Service Coverage?

Emergency roadside service coverage helps you pay for service and support when your car can’t make it to a repair shop — and having it at your fingertips won’t break the bank, either, as most American Family customers with this policy pay between 10 to 20 dollars a year. Every time you call on our experienced emergency roadside service professionals, you can expect:

Speedy service. When your car breaks down, give us a call and, if available, we’ll send a knowledgeable mechanic your way. They’ll provide up to one hour of labor to diagnose your vehicle’s problem and get it back up and running again.

Easy towing. If your vehicle isn’t running or is stuck on a road or in a parking lot, your emergency roadside service coverage will pay to have it towed to the nearest shop/garage so it can get the repairs it needs. No more calling around to local tow companies that may or may not be open or have a driver ready to go — we’ll take care of it.

Stress-free support. Car run out of gas on the highway? Engine stalling because you’re low on oil? We’ll send someone with exactly what your car needs. Battery failing? Whether you need a jumpstart or a charge, we’ve got you covered there. And when you’ve got a flat tire, we’ll be there for you with a change, too.*

Dependable locksmiths. We’ve all been there — you’re already late, and now you find that you’ve locked your keys in your car. But with emergency roadside service, we’ll send a locksmith your way to get you back into your vehicle and on the road as soon as possible.**

Simple billing. Worried about all the moving pieces of calling emergency roadside service and paying the towing, maintenance or repair shop? If you use one of our preferred vendors, you won’t need to worry about upfront payments or reimbursement hassles — we’ll take care of it.

American Family’s emergency roadside service gets you and your vehicle out of frustrating jams. And with that comes the peace of mind that when you find yourself dealing with unexpected vehicle troubles, you’ve got help whenever you need it without an outrageous bill.
