Prevention is the most important part of avoiding breakdowns. If you are going to go on a long trip make sure you get the necessary maintenance and have an abundance of caution when you have to err on the safe side.
At the same time, you should bring the necessary tools so you can try to do some roadside repairs of your own. After all, while waiting for help the best thing to do is to work and conduct the repairs yourself.
Keep your Contact Numbers Handy
AAA and other roadside assistance providers should be on your contact list. The same holds true for any gas stations that you will pass by it is never wrong to have people you can call if you have to get around to calling them in an emergency.
The last thing you want to happen is that you need to call someone, but you don’t have their contact details, and you end up having just to wait and hope that someone good will pass you by.
Power Banks and Extra Cash are Your Friends
When it comes to roadside assistance having an extra power bank is always great to have. After all, if you are stuck in an area where the signal is weak then just trying to contact people will drain the battery fast. Hence you want to have as much extra power in your power banks as possible.
The same holds true for cash. You might be very far from any useful ATMs this means that you might not have money to pay for any people who will come to help you. This can be bad news. People might be good, but they still appreciate cash when they render assistance.
In other words, have cash and a useful power bank on hand wherever you go.
Other Emergency Supplies You Might Need
Roadside flares, reflectors, and other assorted supplies are always nice to pack. If you are driving in the city it doesn’t seem like this is necessary but like I said if you have to travel far from civilization you better come prepared.
Roadside assistance is also possible via your insurer, so you don’t find yourself having to pay too much out of pocket for the service.
