    Is RACV total care roadside assist worth it my new bill is now 300$

      SarahFebruary 6, 2024Finder

      Hi Shane,

      It’s a personal decision whether you feel it is worth it. You may want to consider what your options are if your car breaks down and you don’t have roadside assist; how would you tow the car to a mechanic, do you know anyone who could help you get the car running again etc?

      Another alternative is to consider adding roadside assist through your insurance. Many insurers, such as AHM and Youi, offer roadside assistance as an added extra with your policy.

      Hope this helps!
