Better World Club Roadside Assistance
The Better World Club offers roadside assistance under the flag of green living and eco-friendly practices. They offer roadside service for more than just the family vehicle. You can get roadside assistance for your car, your bicycle and even your company's fleet of vehicles. As part of the fleet vehicle coverage, your employees will be taken care of if they get into an accident on the road. There are also lots of great benefits and discounts to be taken advantage of with membership.
Their basic auto coverage is very competitively priced at $57 annually, but there are limitations. With the basic package you can get roadside service anywhere in the US, Canada or Puerto Rico. Towing costs are covered but only up to 5 miles, which is quite low. The premium service costs $92.95 annually and covers towing costs up to 100 miles. Adding additional members costs extra on both plans. The premium plan come with 2 gallons of free fuel if you run out of gas on the road but you cover the cost of the basic plan.
The pricing on the basic plan is fairly competitive in the industry but the limitations may cause you to pay more in the long run. However, if you don't ever end up using certain services the lower annual cost is great.
