VIC Alternatives to RACV Roadside Assistance for Cars?

  1. So, having told the RACV to sod off, I'm now left with the problem of finding an alternative roadside rescue service, primarily for my wife as she drives a lot more than me.

    (She's also reading over my shoulder while I post this ... possibly wondering about my abilitity to think through the long-term consequences of my actions).

    TIA for any advice ...

    you could recoup costs by ensuring her car mysteriously breaks down a lot. or at least breaks down often enough to meet leasing repayments on the new bike so you can claim it all on tax
  6. If you owned a Honda (which you don't) Honda have their own roadside assist programme....
