Coles roadside assistance review

Coles roadside assistance has similar benefits to other policies in the market and is competitively priced.

Our verdict


  • Coles will supply enough fuel to get you to the next service station
  • Cover applies regardless of who's driving your car – as long as they have your permission
  • Unlimited callouts and No joining fee


  • Only available if you have a Coles car insurance policy
  • Towing costs are capped at 20km in the city, 50km in other areas which could fall short in some areas
  • There are cheaper roadside assistance options on the market

Coles roadside assistance has similar benefits to other policies in the market, but has a particularly generous emergency fuel policy, offering as much as you need to reach the next petrol station, for free. However, be aware that Coles only offers roadside assistance to drivers who have a Coles car insurance policy.
