We’re mere weeks away from Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the true kickoff of the holiday season. If you are going to be traveling, especially if you plan to drive for your vacation or to visit friends and family, here are three reasons to add trip interruption benefits to your service contract:
- Hotel Costs Are at an All-Time High. Every year the cost of hotel rooms goes up. If you get stuck during your travels and need to spend the night in an unfamiliar area while your car is repaired, you want trip interruption benefits to help cover the costs of accommodations.
- Car Rental Rates Are Skyrocketing. Sometimes spending the night while waiting for your car to be repaired is not an option. You either have to rent a vehicle or miss the holiday celebration. Since car rentals can easily cost $45 day just for an economy car (and you probably need something with a little more room for bags if you are traveling), rental reimbursement is another important addition to your car’s service contract.
- Auto Repairs Can Cost a Small Fortune. You don’t want to spend your entire holiday worrying about how big the bill is going to be when you go back to pick up your car from the shop. That means having the right service contract so that when you get work done you know won’t be footing the entire bill yourself.
Protect Yourself and Your Wallet During the Holiday Season
If you’re going to break the bank this holiday season, it should be on getting gifts for loved ones and having a great time with friends and family. Emergency car stuff should be covered under a service contract so that you have peace of mind.
