Roadside assistance in car rental

In car rental, roadside assistance is a service that provides assistance with mechanical problems and breakdowns during the rental period. The renter can use this service when the rental car breaks down during the rental period through no fault of the renter.

Most suppliers include at least some form of roadside assistance in the rates. For an extra fee, many suppliers offer a premium roadside assistance service, which usually covers problems caused by the renter (such as a dead battery, a flat tyre, running out of fuel or locking keys in the vehicle) also.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Supplier offers limited roadside assistance. Please check for details when picking up the vehicle.
