I’m a huge fan of AAA and been a member for over a decade. It’s a huge help when you’re in a bind on the road. However, I know some of my friends—especially the younger ones—aren’t really into paying a yearly membership fee (I only pay $48 a year). If you fall in that category, or simply don’t have AAA, check out the new HONK app, which could help you big time if you ever need a tow.
HONK is similar to Uber—but instead of a car service, it provides direct access to towing, tire changes, jumpstarts, help when you’re locked out, and fuel service. Once you’ve downloaded the free app (for iPhone and Android), all you have to do is press a button when you’re stranded to access the fast (in urban areas), 15-30 minute ETAs (they claim 50% faster than AAA) service they promise. Prices (for assistance when you need it) are guaranteed as low as $49 and there are no membership fees—and no cash, tips, tax or haggling necessary. HONK is available nationwide with more than 20,000 trucks at your service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Next time you have vehicle trouble, just HONK for help.
