What are the benefits?

Key benefits include:

Flat Battery

If you experience a flat battery, a jump-start or battery replacement will be provided under your roadside cover. If your battery fails within 12 months of vehicle registration, we’ll replace it at no cost to you.

Out of Fuel

If you get caught out of fuel, Roadside Assistance will provide a top up to help you get to the nearest re-fueling facility1.

Flat Tyre

A flat tyre will be changed on the spot (where vehicle has a spare) or, if necessary, a tow will be arranged1.

Lock Out

Roadside Assistance will support where possible in opening your vehicle, including locating and delivering your spare keys (where applicable), or arranging a taxi to collect your spare keys, or a tow to the closest Ford Dealer1.

Mechanical Breakdown

For all non-collision or non-insurance related breakdowns that have disabled your vehicle or made it unsafe to drive, please call 13 FORD for assistance. Where applicable, a Service Patrol Vehicle will be dispatched to assist in mobilising your vehicle2.

Towing

If your vehicle can’t be mobilised we’ll tow it to the nearest Ford Dealer1.

Off-Road Rescue & Bogged Vehicles

If you breakdown off-road (such as in creeks, on beaches etc.), Roadside Assist will still be provided where safe to do so. Roadside Assistance will also remove a bogged vehicle if safe to do so, where a two-wheel Patrol Service Vehicle can access it1.

Caravan & Trailer Towing

Where your vehicle experiences a breakdown, a tow will also be arranged for any caravan, trailer or horse floats attached to the vehicle. This will be towed to safety, to the same destination as the vehicle, as required. Conditions apply, see PDF below for full details1.

Personal Benefits more than 100km from home

If your vehicle experiences a mechanical breakdown whilst more than 100km from your home address, and a tow is arranged where the vehicle cannot be repaired on the same day, personal benefits such as accommodation, alternative transport and vehicle recovery are available to you1.
