OK what do you have for roadside assistance?

AAA? allstate? geico?

I locked myself out of my mpv, with the engine running windows up but was lucky i could open it with a hanger in 5 mins.

but next time i don't have a hanger or need other services who do you recommend

Geico as it's cheaper and they tow longer distance than AAA for free. No like AAA discounts, but we never really used them.

I don't use a roadside club. The times I have needed assistance have been so few and infrequent that it is just cheaper to pay out of pocket if/when I do need assistance.

Most states have a highway emergency number that you can call. If you have that, then you have a way of getting help.

My mom was on a weekend driving trip, and my sister got her AAA after the trip was over. According to my sister, if my mom had trouble during her trip she could have called AAA (she had the number with her) and they would have let her join on the spot and then helped her out. If that is truly the case, my thought would be to keep the number handy, and only join when you have a problem and need help. You could save years and years of membership dues with that approach.

Here is a review by Edmunds regarding various plans. There are other ratings and reviews as well.
