Does Car Insurance Cover Towing?
If you own a car, you want to be prepared for it to be entangled in accidents, Illegal parking, and mechanical problems, which might result in your vehicle being towed. Towing might be costly and stressful. JD Power estimates that the typical tow costs $109, but if you're driving a distance, the cost may rise to several hundred dollars very rapidly.
Coverage of Car Insurance
While standard liability insurance does not cover having your car towed, collision insurance might do the
work. Roadside assistance coverage is required if you want coverage in the event of a breakdown.
Your auto insurance will typically pay for car towing, provided you have collision insurance. If you have liability insurance, it may only cover the towing of your car. Additionally, it can be restricted to a certain number of miles or a specific amount of money. If the towing job costs more than what is allowed, you will pay for the remaining balance.
Advantages of Towing
Basic liability coverage does not cover towing costs. If you have collision coverage, you may consider yourself protected for towing in the event of an at-fault accident, and roadside assistance coverage will cover a tow in the event of a roadside mechanical failure. And just like all insurance premiums, adding safety has a charge.

Thanks so much for pointing out the advantages of towing your car after an accident. My younger cousin just started driving and my aunt is worried he might get stranded somewhere.

It was interesting to know that collision insurance can cover towing cars. My friend wants to get his car towed. I should advise him to call a towing service that provides after hour services.
