The General provides optional Towing and Labor coverage in select states to pay for the cost of towing your car if it becomes disabled. Comprehensive and collision coverage is a prerequisite for purchase. The General also offers a Roadside Assistance plan that is administered by Nation Safe Drivers (NSD). This optional program provides 24-hour assistance for towing and other emergency services.
Allstate offers additional discounts for utility vehicles, farm vehicles, seniors, and the newly retired.
