Is towing covered by car insurance?

Towing is covered by car insurance, as long as you have roadside assistance coverage, which also provides services for those with flat tires or who have experienced other problems that have left them stranded. If car insurance will cover towing depends on your provider. If your provider does not cover towing costs, consider getting roadside assistance coverage from another company such as AAA.
