It can be a major inconvenience when you really need to get somewhere and you’ve got a flat tire. Or you’re out of gas. Or your car just won’t start. Nationwide Roadside Assistance, available in select states, is like having your own personal pit crew 24/7. If you need help with a flat tire, a jump or a tow, our emergency Roadside Assistance program can help.
How Nationwide Roadside Assistance works
Once you sign up for Roadside Assistance, simply call 1-800-421-3535 when you need help.
- A service representative will confirm your location and send emergency, police or fire services if you’re in any danger.
- A Roadside Assistance field representative will be dispatched to your location to help.
In many cases, you’ll just sign and drive – no payment is required.
