You might think that the road service that comes with auto insurance is enough, but JAF plus insurance gives you even more peace of mind!

If you sign up for auto insurance affiliated with JAF, you will receive plus something extra service (see above) along with the regular JAF member road services, which comes with many advantages. JAF members can use road services that are not covered by their auto insurance.
