Family Trip Interrupted

Imagine this, it’s a warm spring day and your family SUV is packed to the brim with sunscreen, bathing suits, towels, beach toys and even the family dog. You’re about to make the almost 300-mile drive to 30A for Spring Break. The trip is going great. The kids are getting along and you’re enjoying the time together. But then when you’re just over halfway to your destination the car starts to make a strange noise that makes your heart sink. Before you know it, you and your family are stranded on the side of the road with a vehicle that isn’t going anywhere. 

You call your local Georgia Farm Bureau agent, Beau, to ask him about roadside assistance. He reminds you that you purchased Trip Interruption Coverage. It was an add-on to your auto insurance policy but wasn’t an expensive addition. In that moment, you’re glad Beau told you about the added coverage a few months back. Your Trip Interruption Coverage paid for your car to be towed, the hotel you had to stay in, meals for you and your family and even your rental car to make the rest of the trip to the beach. 

 It was after hours, around eight in the evening when you called your Georgia Farm Bureau agent, but Beau answered the call and helped you through a stressful situation. The limit on your Trip Interruption Coverage was around $600, that’s a lot of money to have to come up with unexpectedly, especially at the beginning of a vacation away from home. Your glad that your agent helped cover what matters most to you. He not only made sure that the vehicle that gets you where you need to go was covered, but that the trip along the way was too. If you don’t have it, ask your agent about Trip Interruption Coverage, it pays for those unexpected expenses you can incur if your vehicle breaks down.
