Car owners planning a road trip for spring break this year should look into getting an extended car warranty first, says Continental Warranty, the leading provider of extended car warranties in the nation.
There is almost nothing worse than having a car break down while on vacation - except having a car break down while on vacation without a car warranty. An extended car warranty while on spring break can provide roadside assistance in unknown areas, cover expenses (so vacation money isn't all spent on car repairs) and prevent a spring break vacation from being interrupted as much as possible.
"No one wants to have car trouble while they are on vacation, but unfortunately it happens," said Bob Nelson, General Sales Manager of Continental Warranty. "The important thing is to plan accordingly by choosing the best extended car warranty for your needs."
When choosing an extended car warranty, the majority of the decision should be based on time, mileage and the services and components covered by the car warranty. Car owners should consider how they will be using their car and choose their car warranty accordingly. Drivers that want to keep their vehicles for a long time while not driving them long distances should choose car warranties with lower mileage coverage and a longer time period. On the other hand, drivers that will put a lot of miles on their vehicles in a short time period (such as taking a long road trip) will want a high mileage extended car warranty plan.
Once the mileage and time requirements of a car warranty have been chosen, the covered components within the warranty should be considered to ultimately find the best extended car warranty for the individual driver and their vehicle. Drivers should go over the entire list of what is covered with the car warranty and make sure it matches their cars needs before making their final decision.
When on spring break one of the most valuable components included in a car warranty is the road service benefit. With the road service benefit, in the event that a vehicle becomes disabled and requires on-site road side assistance, the car warranty owner will be refunded for services such as vehicle extrication, fuel or fluid delivery or battery boost/jump.
Another valuable component included in an extended car warranty is the trip interruption benefit. With this benefit, if a breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from the driver's home and results in the vehicle being kept overnight, this coverage pays for receipted motel and restaurant expenses.
Car maintenance can be expensive these days, but car repairs are even more expensive. Just one big repair bill or mishap that is covered by a car warranty (such as air conditioner repair which can easily cost over $800 or a breakdown in the middle of nowhere) and a car warranty has paid for itself. Drivers that follow these tips and invest in an extended car warranty can ensure that they have a great time on their spring break road trip.
Continental Warranty has 14 different extended car warranty plans to fit every driver's needs. Road side assistance and trip interruption insurance are just two of the many benefits automatically included in every extended car warranty from Continental Warranty.
