A new road­side as­sis­tance ser­vice has been launched that does away with mem­ber­ship fees. Cov­er­ing most of the UK, RESQYOU is a digital on­de­mand ser­vice where users can re­quest as­sis­tance through the web­site or via the free RESQYOU app on their smart­phone.

The RESQYOU ser­vice cov­ers ev­ery­thing from punc­tures and flat bat­ter­ies to mis­fu­elling, tow­ing and re­quest­ing a lock­smith for when keys are locked in­side.

Mo­torists only pay for the ser­vice they re­quire, when they re­quire it. In ad­di­tion, users can track the jour­ney and es­ti­mated time of ar­rival of their tech­ni­cian in re­al­time, and there’s a Fam­ily View func­tion, whereby any­one can link ac­counts and mon­i­tor the sta­tus of the as­sis­tance call­out. Also avail­able to those who haven’t down­loaded the app, mo­torists re­quir­ing as­sis­tance can re­quest help in just a few steps on­line at

The RESQYOU app of­fers three prod­ucts: £79.99 As­sis­tance Only Thirty min­utes of road­side or home as­sis­tance for flat bat­ter­ies, flat tyres, keys locked in the car and run­ning out of fuel. £99.99 Re­cov­ery Only Thirty min­utes of road­side as­sis­tance for non-start­ing ve­hi­cles and re­cov­ery up to 10 miles from as­sis­tance lo­ca­tion, ac­ci­dent re­cov­ery and ma­jor me­chan­i­cal fail­ure.

£249.99 Wrong Fuel – Cov­ers the re­moval of fuel, drainage, flush­ing and cleaning of tank and pipes, and a fuel top-up.

RESQYOU is op­er­ated by Al­lianz Global As­sis­tance, which has more than 35 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in pro­vid­ing pre­mium man­u­fac­turer-branded road­side as­sis­tance schemes. Kate Walker, the head of strate­gic mar­ket man­age­ment, says: “The tra­di­tional mo­tor­ing club model alone sim­ply does not of­fer the fi­nan­cial flex­i­bil­ity many con­sumers are de­mand­ing. RESQYOU brings tech-savvy mo­torists the choice, con­trol and con­ve­nience they ex­pect in to­day’s mar­ket.”

The RESQYOU app can be down­loaded for free from The Ap­ple Store and Google Play. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about ge­o­graph­i­cal cov­er­age and full de­tails of the ser­vices, see
