Backed by an "A+" Rated Insurer

Good Sam Extended Service Plan is not a warranty program — it's a true mechanical breakdown policy insurance. That means it's strictly regulated like any other insurance product and fully insured by an "A+" rated underwriter.

Money Saving Travel Benefits

If your car, truck or SUV is not useable due to a covered loss while you are more than 100 miles away from home, we'll help pay toward lodging and meals for up to 10 days - that's up to $1,000 for hotels, motels and meals. Plus, we'll add $60 a day for up to 10 days - that's up to $600 to pay for a rental car.

Designed to Pay Directly to the Service Center of Your Choice

Here's how our plan works: if your car, truck or SUV breaks down, simply take it to a service center anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. Call our toll-free number and we can discuss the repairs with the technician on your behalf. Once work is completed and to your satisfaction, we pay the service center directly (unless you request otherwise).

Continuous Coverage

Good Sam Extended Service Plan also offers a convenient feature ensuring there is no overlap between our plan's coverage and the original manufacturer's auto warranty. That means if you activate our plan's coverage while your auto is under warranty, the Good Sam Extended Service Plan's benefits begin today and continue.


The Good Sam Extended Service Plan requires no long-term commitment and features renewable annual agreements. We also offer a choice of deductible and payment options to make the plan affordable for everyone.

Fully Transferable

Once you have Good Sam Extended Service Plan, it is fully transferable to a new owner. This can mean an increased resale value for your car, truck or SUV.
