Youi Roadside Assistance
Need roadside assistance? Youi offer their roadside assistance at no additional cost with their comprehensive car insurance policy.
Getting behind the wheel is a great feeling. Not going anywhere isn't. Driving is a great experience, but it has its pitfalls. Sooner or later, a tyre flattens, the tank runs dry or the engine just gives out. If you find yourself stuck, you'll be glad for a little bit of help.
Youi roadside assistance provides over-the-phone assistance and cover benefits such as emergency fuel, towing and taxi services. It's available at no additional cost for the first two call-outs with any comprehensive car or motorcycle insurance policy from Youi.

|Emergency fuel (petrol and diesel)||Up to 10 litres|
|Locksmith||Up to $150|
|Towing and caravan or trailer assistance||Up to 50km in regional areas and 20km in metropolitan areas|
|Taxi||Up to $50|

Are there any exclusions?
Youi won't cover any unregistered or unroadworthy vehicles or trailers, nor any vehicles used for business or commercial purposes. You also won't be covered for:
- Attempted repairs or the dismantling of your car.
- Damage from fire, accident, theft, flood or malicious damage.
- Financial loss or legal liability connected with a breakdown or accident.
- Use of the vehicle by an unlicensed or disqualified driver.
- Use of the vehicle in motorsports or competitions.
Youi can also reject roadside assistance or towing that is considered unnecessary and excessive.
Am I protected in an accident?
No. Roadside assistance only provides protection against roadside breakdowns or issues with operation (flat tyres, etc). To protect yourself against accidents and damage, you will need third party property cover or higher, depending on your needs. Happily, roadside assistance is included with comprehensive car and motorcycle cover from Youi.
