Unfortunately, when you have roadside assistance through your auto insurance company, including Mercury, that service is only available for the vehicle that the coverage lists. However, there are other roadside companies (like AAA) that will allow you to use the program no matter whose vehicle you are in. Check out our article that compares different roadside assistance options to help determine what might be the best fit for you.

Good luck and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

If I have gap insurance and totaled my car, but there is no gap between insurance payment and remaining loan balance, do I get a refund?

Not all gap insurance is written in the same manner, so you may have to refer to your insurer to get more information. From my understanding, if you pay off the loan and didn't use gap insurance to do so, they will probably refund some premiums paid back to you. It doesn't hurt to call th…
