I second the Good Sam towing insurance. They will try to gain your business on vehicular insurance too.

How are their rates compared to others? Their name hasn't come up with any of the insurance issue threads.

I keep getting offers to call in and get a rate quote. I haven't done that yet since I'm paid up for at least another 8 months.

I agree, they don't seem to come up on a normal insurance search. Maybe it's by offer only? I don't know how they screen drivers.

When I looked into Good Sam insurance on their site, I was redirected to GMAC. You might get something different depending on your state.

I haven't looked into Good Sam insurance at all. They seem to have bad timing as far as renewing my insurance policy. I started receiving vehicle insurance offers from them about six months after I bought their premium towing package. Getting towed just once can cost more than three years of towing insurance.

I'm cheap, and used vehicles are going to have problems at some point so I like knowing that little portion is covered.
