Trip Interruption Coverage
By Pekin Insurance · Jul 16, 2021 ·1 min read
Are you headed out on a summer vacation soon? There is never a better time of year to take a few days off, pile your family into the car, and head out to see what the world has to offer! Just don’t forget to protect yourself on the way.
What do we mean by that? We thought you’d never ask!
We know family road trips aren’t always a perfect postcard image. We run into snags all the time, from Dad forgetting his luggage to the kids eating the wrong rest-station snack. And we can’t forget the most dreaded vacation snag of all: car trouble. Plenty of family vacations are ruined each year by the family car breaking down. Instead of a fun trip to the Grand Canyon or Shipshewana, you’re looking at a hotel in the middle of nowhere while the car is sitting at a local shop, totally undrivable.
As if it wasn’t bad enough, you are also out a couple hundred dollars on all the extra expenses that come along with a mechanical or electrical breakdown, like hotels and meals and even transportation. If only you had something that could protect you in this situation.
Well, we have your solution!
Auto Guard acts as travel insurance for your vehicle. It pays for lodging and meals if your vehicle isn’t legally drivable for 24 hours. It also covers transportation expenses caused by breakdown, up to $200 per day (maximum of $600), as long as your breakdown is 100 or more miles from home and is related to a mechanical or electrical issue. A regular auto insurance policy won’t cover those extra expenses. While the cost for repairing mechanical and electrical issues is still your responsibility, we can help you out with the extra costs that come along when your car breaks down far from home when you add this enhancement to your policy.
The best part? This coverage can be added to your policy for $20 or less per car per year.
This means for less than $20 a year, you will have the peace of mind you need to have all of the family fun you want. This means that a $20 bill or less can buy you more fun and less stress. This means more beautiful memories with the people who matter most in your life.
Let’s face it: family vacations aren’t always perfect. Sometimes they are stressful and full of ‘what if’s.’ Let us take care of some of that stress while you get back to having fun by adding trip interruption coverage to your auto insurance policy.
