CardSmart Auto Assist Plus

In addition to general roadside assistance, you can subscribe to our Auto Assist Plus service.

With Auto Assist Plus, your drivers can be covered for a range of mechanical, non-mechanical and collision related incidents, to ensure they are taken care of, and made mobile, as soon as possible after an incident. The service includes 3 FREE callouts per year.

All for a predictable, flat annual fee of $55 per vehicle or driver (excl. GST).

Your annual Auto Assist Plus subscription covers the driver or vehicle associated with your CardSmart card, i.e.:

  • Personal cardholder – the individual is entitled to the service for any vehicle in which they are the driver
  • Vehicle cardholder – the service is available only for the vehicle registered on that card

Unfortunately, incidents do happen. Ensure peace of mind for your drivers and minimise any vehicle downtime by signing up for CardSmart’s Auto Assist Plus.

  • Fully supported by the Automobile Association
  • Free one-day car rental*
  • Personal breakdown cover
  • Vehicle breakdown cover
  • Nationwide coverage
