When it comes to getting from home to work and beyond, winter brings a different set of challenges to our daily routines. Cold weather and our vehicles don’t get along sometimes. Have you ever accidentally locked your keys in your car while scraping ice and snow off the windshield? Had trouble starting your car in the cold weather? Slide into a curb, break an axle and need a tow? Or, have to abandon your car on the side of the highway in a snow storm?
At MapQuest, we know winter can be out to get you. That’s why our on-demand, membership-free roadside assistance (powered by Urgent.ly) is quickly and easily accessible from our app. Request help for common roadside headaches such as lockout, jump starts, tire changes, fuel delivery, and towing services in a just a few taps. No memberships required. No hoops to jump through. No planning needed.
To request a service, simply select “Roadside Assistance” from the main menu and enter some basic information about your car and where you need help. We display a pricing estimate up-front and won’t charge you until the service is complete. You can even track the tow truck on its route to you and view time of arrival. Oh, did we mention no membership fees?
