Imagine that halfway through an enjoyable road trip, you decide to stop for the night at a hotel. Then disaster hits as the next morning your car won’t start. Stuck in the middle of nowhere, what can you do? Well, if you have trip interruption coverage included an auto warranty, most or all of your trip interruption costs may be covered – not to mention your repair fees.
Don’t Be Left Stranded
The way trip interruption coverage works is that if you get stranded, your hotel and food costs are covered if the mechanic has to keep your car overnight. Typically, most repairs can be completed before the benefit runs out. You might not like being stuck, but at least your lodging and meals are free.
Repair Costs Covered Too
A solid extended vehicle protection plan covers your repair costs as per the plan’s terms as well. Plus, payment is handled directly between the warranty and the mechanic. So you don’t have to worry about spending all your vacation money on car repairs since the warranty has it covered. There are different levels of coverage you can choose from depending on your needs and comfort level.
Out Of Gas
Another benefit of many warranty plans is emergency gas delivery service. So if you run out of gas, the delivery of the fuel is paid for. You just have to pay for the cost of the gas.
Keys Locked In
Locked your keys in the car? No problem. Getting your car open and freeing your keys is also covered in most extended auto warranty plans. Also, if your lock is frozen and you can’t get in, the service to open your frozen lock is covered.
Other Roadside Assistance
If you get a flat, the service to change the tire is part of the extended vehicle protection plan. Or if your battery is dead, the jump start service is paid for. Finally, if you need a tow, the auto warranty will pay for the towing fee.
The Best Perks Of All – Protection And Savings
The best part of an auto warranty, however, is that you have a plan that protects your car. Very much like an original factory warranty, covered mechanical failures are paid for. You can pay for the warranty in full, up front, or you can pay in installments.
In many cases, the money you would have paid out of pocket for repairs exceeds the cost of the warranty. This savings does not even include all the benefits mentioned above. For example, a one night hotel stay and three meals alone could cost you over $200.
