A (very) busy summer helping holidaymakers in France
With the European summer now behind us, we look back at a very busy holiday season which also paints a picture of the important role assistance companies play for holidaymakers.
In France, more than 600,000 people in difficulty were helped by Mondial Assistance during July/August, which resulted in the opening of more than 240,000 assistance files!
On its busiest day – Tuesday 16 August – our assistance platform made and received 32,700 phone calls to help customers.
The French love to holiday with their car, so it’s no surprise that more than 80% of all summer assistance cases handled were vehicle-related (202,500 assistance files), resulting in more than 136,000 vehicles requiring towing assistance! Add to this that more than 5,600 medical files were opened and 2,100 people required medical repatriation in France and overseas by Mondial Assistance and you will see how busy we have been!
And that’s just the France cases – we’re present in 27 other countries!!
The prices are lower than AAA, Bestroadservice, AARP, Allstate, and Better World’s services. The pricing is really the best for families with 2 or more drivers as seen through their roadside assistance comparison charts.
Pop-A-Lock Guy REEKED of dank, and couldn't help change my tire.
So much for paying $20 a month for roadside assistance. He couldn’t help me because he needed the special jack and tools to get my specific spare tire down from under the truck bed. I’ve never heard of such a thing. He kept telling me it would have been in a little bag when I got the truck. I don’t recall such a bag. So, he leaves and I have a cry, then search my truck in case *maybe*, *somewhere* there is a bag of tools floating around my 5-year old truck.
No bag, but guess what? There’s a tidy little plastic well between the center console that houses -drumroll please- a special jack and tools to get down the spare.
I call the guy but he has to travel North and will be over an hour, so I said thanks, but no thanks. I’ll jsut call before work tomorrow. I guess I could even get Jeff or my father-in-law, or even Jason to take care of it for me, but dammit, I’m getting SOME use out of my OnStar!
Frustrated, but the upside to all of this is at least the spare is a full tire, and not a donut which means I can put off buying a tire for another week or two (Yeah, yeah I know I will need a spare for the spare ASAP!)
Are you financially prepared for 2013?
We all have heard on the news or read in newspaper the disaster that our country is facing financially.
We can’t seem to agree on weather or not to raise taxes (we all know they will be raised), businesses will be forced to downsize to prevent Obamacare (if a company has more than 50 employees fulltime, they have to offer health insurance), food prices are going up, rent is higher because so many people are renting due to losing their homes to forclosure, banks are still tight on lending, seniors are being forced out of retirement to get a job in order to make ends meet, and so much more.
The only way to secure your financial freedom is to take control of it. Start a part-time home based business. You can still keep your 9-5 and run your part-time business until your part-time business income surpasses your 9-5 income.
There are many online opportunities available, some have a higher start-up than others. Some are literally less than $50 bucks to start!
I decided to try Motor Club of America back in April of this year (2012). It was $39.90 to start and 30 days later $19.95 a month for the membership. It’s a service everyone needs and it offers over $150,000 in benefits and protection.
