           Things you should know     17

        Wherever you’re heading,
        it’s reassuring to know
        NRMA are there for you.

        flat tyres to keys locked-in,
        we’ll be there within an average
        time of 30 minutes*.

        After all, we’ve been helping our

        500 patrol vans providing Roadside
        Assistance on duty 24 hours a day,
        we’ll keep you moving.

        Roadside Assistance choices
        When it comes to deciding the right level of
        Roadside Assistance for you, think about the
        distances you’ll be travelling, the cover you’re
        looking for and the size of your car.

        If you drive every day or take the odd road trip and
        want the convenience of Accident and Major Breakdown
        Assistance, then Premium Care is for you. If you just
        drive to the shops and want the simple assurance that
        you’ll never be stranded, take a look at Classic Care.
        You’ll find a full comparison table on pages 13 & 14,
        and prices at the back.

     Toll	costs
     Any Tow (which is not covered under your Subscription Package
     entitlements) and any associated Tow costs, such as toll costs,
     must be paid by you at the time of the Tow. If credit card
     payment is accepted by our Towing providers, you may be
     required to pay the credit card surcharge.

     Clean	up	fee
     You must pay a clean up fee to the Tow provider if contamination
     from your Vehicle makes it necessary for the tow truck to be taken
     off the road and cleaned. If an additional service is required to clean
     up the roadway, you must also pay for this service.

     7.4 Subsequent tows for the same Breakdown
     Once a Tow has been provided for a Breakdown, you must pay for
     any subsequent tows for the same Breakdown at Commercial
     Rates at the time of service. This includes towing for a Vehicle
     that has been Towed after hours to the Member’s Home, a
     holding yard or other place of safety and then needs further
     towing for the same Breakdown. This applies to Trailers that are
     entitled to Towing benefits.

     7.5 Excess kilometres
     If a Tow for your Vehicle (and/or Trailer entitled to Towing
     benefits) is in excess of the distance for which you’re eligible, you
     must pay the Tow provider for the excess distance at Commercial
     Rates at the time of the Tow.

     7.6 Salvage Tow
     If your Vehicle has pulled to the side of the road and has become
     bogged without being involved in an Accident, we will attempt
     to salvage you from the situation without calling for a tow truck.
     If Towing Equipment is required, this will be at your expense.

     Please refer to clause 8.3 for Vehicle weight limits.
