Roadside assistance in auto insurance policies usually includes towing, up to a certain distance specified in the policy. Not all policies will be eligible for roadside assistance, and coverage is always optional. Some insurance companies may cover towing if you're involved in a covered accident, even if you don't have roadside assistance coverage. The terms, definitions and explanations of insurance are for informational purposes only and do not replace or modify in any way the definitions and information contained on the individual pages of insurance contracts, policies, or statements, which control coverage determinations.
Many insurance companies, including Progressive, offer roadside assistance as optional coverage in your car insurance policy.
