smart Road Assistance

Keeping Your smart Car Moving

With smart road assistance you can rest easy knowing your smart is in good hands in case of accident, breakdown, minor mishap, or vandalism. If your smart encounters trouble, you’ll be able to get back on your way with smart road assistance thanks to benefits such as breakdown repair and towing, hotel accommodation and a replacement car.

All smarts registered* on or after 01/11/2014, will benefit from smart road assistance for three years. After this, your smart road assistance will be automatically renewed for a year every time your smart goes in for an official smart service for up to 30 years.
