Stranded? Get Help You Can Afford with AutoVantage!

I am no stranger to car breakdowns. In fact, it's part of the game when you drive older cars.  While I usually don't have anything major happen when I'm on the road, it's not unheard of for me to have left the lights on, gotten a flat tire, or have a broken belt.

Usually, I can call my husband, wait an hour or so, and be back on my way to being safely home.  Sometimes, however, I am not in a place that I want to wait long (like along the side of a busy highway), or it's not wise to hang out and hope for the best (like when the weather is dangerously hot.) That's when a good roadside assistance service can be very useful.

I was recently able to purchase an AutoVantage Membership as part of the Walmart Moms program, and, so far -- I've not had to use it.  I'm impressed with the features, however, which gives me a little bit more peace of mind than when I've been forced to rely on other options (like the coverage plan that comes with my cell phone carrier or home insurance.)

AutoVantage is just $69.88 a year, and it can be purchased at your local Walmart in the Tire & Auto Repair department.  It gets you access to a network of over 22,000 service providers that offer a tow, giving you 24/7 help when you need it most.

Here's some of the perks that are included:
  • Up to 150 miles per occurrence
  • Auto and Home lock-out protection
  • Service Center Network Savings 
  • Discounts on automotive maintenance and repairs 
  • Access to an independent, ASE-certi ed mechanics for estimates and advice
  • Hotel discounts 
  • Discounts on car rentals from Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Alamo, Dollar and National at participating locations
While some programs will charge you to add additional family members or cars to the plan, AutoVantage does not.  You can actually save 50% or more for a family of four drivers versus similar programs from other companies!  Your family is covered for up to 5 service events per year, too.  So you can drive confidently, knowing that you won't be left by the side of the road.
