Should You Get Additional Auto Insurance for Long Distance Travel?

Whether you are planning to travel a long distance for the holidays or just take a road trip in the Spring, you might want to consider if your current auto insurance is adequate. An agent from the TAB Insurance Agency LLC of the Austin, TX area can advise you based on your circumstances. 

Is there a specific type of insurance for long-distance travel?

Depending on the company, there may be an actual road trip policy you can get. Otherwise, you’ll at least want to make sure that you have more than just the minimum liability that is required by every state. For instance, you’ll want to know that your policy includes a sort of broadening clause so that you’re covered when driving in other states than where you got your insurance.

Supplemental Insurance Needs

You don’t want to think about it, but you may end up getting into an accident or having some kind of mechanical failure. When this happens, it’s important that you have good roadside assistance. Some plans will only tow your vehicle a certain distance, so you’ll want to see about adding onto your roadside policy through an insurance provider or the manufacturer if you’re under the warranty still. Car issues are bad enough when you’re trying to enjoy yourself on a trip, but it will give you some relief when you know you don’t have to worry about having your vehicle transported somewhere for repairs.
