In addition to providing motorists with free auto insurance quotes online, Allstate insurance will soon be making available to all drivers — not just Allstate policyholders — a new, free-to-join roadside assistance program.

The insurance company said it put together such a program in order to meet demand for a roadside assistance that is free of annual fees.

“With the launch of Good Hands Roadside, Allstate continues to broaden the definition of protection with new products and services consumers want in the ways they want them,” said Chuck Paul, group vice president of Emerging Businesses for the insurance provider. “This is just another option individuals can use to protect what matters most.”

Instead of paying the yearly fees, users of the service will pay set costs for different types of services. Although Allstate has not yet released a complete list of prices, a press release from the company says that a tow of up to 10 miles will cost users $75 and services such as fixing flat tires, dead batteries and getting keys out of locked cars will cost $50.
