Allianz provides two policy options: Standard Roadside Assistance and Platinum Roadside Assistance. To find out which policy works for you, we've broken down their costs and cover, and compared them next to other brands.

What does Allianz Roadside Assistance cover me for?

Allianz Roadside Assistance provides cover for the following:

  • Flat or faulty battery service. Whether you've got a flat battery or a faulty one, Allianz will come out and get it sorted for you. You'll have to pay for a new battery yourself though.
  • Emergency fuel. Mistakes happen. If you run out of fuel, Allianz will deliver enough for you to get to a petrol station. The delivery and cost of fuel is free if you're in a city or large regional town.
  • Flat tyres. Allianz will change a flat tyre with the car's spare wheel. If you can't have it changed, they'll tow you to the nearest repairer.
  • Towing. A Standard membership provides you with a limit of 20km from the breakdown location in city areas, or a limit of 50km in regional areas. A Platinum membership on the other hand gives you 100km in city areas and 200km in regional locations. You'll have to pay for any costs if you go above these limits.
  • Replacement for lost or locked keys. A Standard membership comes with a limit of $150 to replace lost keys or if you've locked them in your car. This goes up to $200 with a Platinum membership.
  • Accident coordination. If you're involved in an accident, Allianz can sort out towing arrangements, alternative transport and advice on what to do. You'll need to pay for accident towing and alternative transport costs yourself though.
  • Emergency message relay. If you're involved in an accident or breakdown, Allianz can relay urgent messages to whoever needs to know.
  • Taxi. Get up to $100 towards a taxi ride if you break down and need to get to where you're going.
  • Emergency travel benefits. If you have a breakdown when you're more than 100km from home and your vehicle cannot be repaired on the same day, Platinum memberships can get money towards alternative travel, accommodation or a rental vehicle.

How much does it cost?

At the time of writing, a Standard Allianz Roadside Assistance policy costs $99 per year. If you want the Platinum membership, which gives you more money towards benefits and extra services like money towards alternative travel, then you're looking at $169.

Unlike many car insurance providers, you don't need to purchase a car insurance policy in order to get the option of roadside assistance. There are also no joining fees with Allianz Roadside Assistance.
