Since I started blogging I’ve gotten quite a few interesting links forwarded to me from readers. One of them was particularly timely — a roadside assistance program. Both my car and my husband’s car have gone past that 70,000 mile mark, and we’ve paid off the loans, and there is more of a chance that they will need a tow or will break down for some reason. We were members of AAA years ago but at one point in our lives we had two brand new cars and decided we didn’t expect to use it enough to justify the cost.
As of the beginning of this year my husband works in Boston, I work in Enfield, New Hampshire and one of us will be driving many miles in older vehicles each weekend to visit the other. So I thought I would look into restarting my AAA membership.
Then I got this timely email from a friend about the Better World Club. I didn’t even know there were options for roadside assistance!
As opposed to being partners with car companies that want to sell us gas guzzlers, the Better World Club is an environmentally friendly roadside assistance program. They have bicycle assistance programs and they provide discounts for people with hybrids, electric or biofuel cars!
They have competitive rates with AAA and encourage eco-travel destinations and renting hybrids when traveling. Sounds great to me. Check them out!
I’ll report back in a few months when I’ve had a chance to use their services.
