Membership Guidelines

Important information. Please read thoroughly.
As a member of Drivers’ Assist, you are entitled to certain services and benefits which are set forth in their entirety in this guide, subject to the guidelines and limitations of this “Membership Guidelines” section.

The following provisions apply to your membership:

  1. Whenever we refer to “we,” “us,” “our” and “CCMC” we refer to Cross Country Motor Club, Inc. or Cross Country Motor Club of California, Inc.
  2. You will not be required to pay to us any sum in addition to the membership fee for any of the services to be provided by us hereunder (up to the dollar limits). Restrictions are noted. In the event the cost for the service exceeds coverage limits, you will be required to pay the additional service charges at the time service is rendered. Additional charges are not reimbursable.
  3. Your membership begins on the date shown on your membership card and will continue until the expiration date shown. Unless you have renewed your membership, the benefits will expire at the end of your term. Your membership will not automatically renew; you will need to contact us or respond to our solicitation. You may cancel coverage at any time by giving written notice to CCMC.
  4. You may cancel coverage at any time by giving written notice to Cross Country. If you have paid for your membership, you will be entitled to a refund for the unused portion of your membership upon cancellation, unless you have previously had services provided.
  5. In the event of fraud, CCMC reserves the right to cancel your membership upon ten days written notice to you, effective at the end of the month.
  6. Services and benefits are available in the 50 states of the United States of America and the District of Columbia (but excluding its territories and possessions).
  7. Roadside assistance, towing and lockout services and benefits are rendered as “emergency services” and are available only when the vehicle(s) covered is unable to proceed safely under its own power, either on the member’s premises (garage or driveway) or any normally traveled, paved public street, highway or parking area.
  8. Frequency Limits – Service will only be provided for one disablement for the same cause during any consecutive 7-day period. Only one tow or other service per disablement will be provided. Services are for emergencies only and not intended to be a general repair service or used as a substitute for regular/routine maintenance.
  9. Service Limitations – i) Service will only be provided for up to two (2) disablement events during the initial membership term (six (6) months from your enrollment). ii) Upon renewal, service will be provided for up to four (4) disablement events during the renewal term (twelve (12) months). Services are for emergencies only and not intended to be a general repair service or used as a substitute for regular/routine maintenance.
  10. If more than the above number of service incidents occur during a membership term, we will continue to provide the benefits of dispatched service to your disabled vehicle, however, any resulting service charges must be paid by you, the member, at the time service is rendered and these charges are not reimbursable. Winching benefits are limited to within 10 feet off the side of a normally traveled paved public street, highway or parking area.
  11. Please make sure to remove all personal items of value from your vehicle prior to any tows or overnight storage. The service providers and service facilities used by Drivers’ Assist are independent contractors and are not the agents or employees of CCMC. Claims for damage to the property or injury to person(s) must be filed against the service provider or facility.
  12. Theft reward (for residents of Arkansas, Montana, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Wisconsin): you, your relatives or law enforcement officials cannot receive the reward. The actual amount of the reward and person or persons entitled thereto shall be solely as determined in the judgment of CCMC.

Reimbursement in Certain Circumstances:
When, because of unusual circumstances, you utilize the option of obtaining emergency services through your own service provider (a service provider is defined as an established commercial garage, service station or other repair facility), you must first call CCMC and receive an authorization number. For reimbursement (up to $100 per occurrence) send us your original (not a photocopy) pre-printed itemized receipt (including name, address, and telephone number of the service provider), your authorization number, your name, address, and a description detailing the emergency services provided and amount of the service charges.

For reimbursement claims: All claims must be mailed to Drivers’ Assist Plan, Claims Department, P.O. Box 9145, Medford, MA 02155 within thirty (30) days of the disablement or occurrence, accompanied by the bill and verification records requested previously. Claims received after that time period may not be honored and are subject to the full discretion of CCMC. Private citizen’s assistance is not reimbursable.

In Maryland, the program is offered by Cross Country Motor Club, Inc., with a home office at One Cabot Road, Medford MA 02155 (telephone number 1-844-714-9659). While the company does not have a physical location in the state, service of process may be made upon Cross Country Motor Club, Inc. through its registered agent. Maryland residents are asked to use the above listed toll-free number to contact the company by telephone.

Montana Residents:
Pursuant to MCA 61-12-301(12) and MCA 61-12-309 (the Montana motor club statutes), this brochure constitutes a “service contract” and upon receipt of membership, the member agrees and acknowledges the following: (1) this “service contract” is deemed to have been signed by the member and motor club; and (2) the member and motor club have each received a copy of this fully executed “service contract”. Your signature on this “service contract” is deemed to have been received through one or more of the following methods: (i) if you have enrolled by phone, your verbal approval pursuant to MCA 30-18-102(9) (the Montana Electronic Transactions Act) is deemed your electronic signature, or (ii) similarly if you have enrolled through a web or mobile portal, your electronic approval is deemed your electronic signature. If the membership is cancelled and you have paid actual consideration for the motor club membership, you will receive a pro rata refund, without any deductions.

Utah Residents:
Under Utah law, these benefits may only be cancelled by CCMC (a) upon 10 days’ written notice for nonpayment of the fees when due, or (b) upon 30 days’ written notice in the event of any of the following: (i) a material misrepresentation by you, (ii) a substantial change in the risk assumed reasonably unforeseen by CCMC, or (iii) a substantial breach of your contractual duties, conditions or warranties. The foregoing notification periods do not apply if the membership has been in effect for less than 60 days when the written notice of cancellation is mailed or delivered.

With respect to reimbursement requests, a failure to provide timely notice or submit evidence of expenses within 30 days will not invalidate your claim if it was not reasonably possible for you to give the notice or file the receipts within 30 days and notice was given or the claim was filed as soon as reasonably possible.

Wisconsin Residents:
Under Wisconsin law, these benefits may be deemed an insurance policy. After the first 60 days and prior to the expiration of the term Cross Country agrees that it will not cancel your benefits except: (a) for failure to pay the membership fee; (b) in the event of material misrepresentation by you; (c) in the event of a substantial change in the risk assumed reasonably unforeseen by Cross Country; or (d) for a breach of duties, conditions, or warranties by you. No cancellation will become effective until at least ten days after the first class mailing or delivery of a written notice to you. You may cancel your membership at any time upon ten (10) days prior notice to CCMC. If you have a monthly membership and are paying in advance, you will be entitled to a refund for the month in which you have not received the membership benefit. For annual memberships, you will be entitled to a refund on the unused portion. KEEP THIS WITH YOUR INSURANCE PAPERS. PROBLEMS WITH YOUR INSURANCE? If you are having problems with your insurance company or agent, do not hesitate to contact the insurance company or agent to resolve your problem. You can also contact the OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF INSURANCE (a state agency which enforces Wisconsin’s insurance laws) to file a complaint. You can contact the OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF INSURANCE by writing to:

Office of the Commissioner of Insurance
Complaints Section
P.O. Box 7873
Madison, WI 53707-7873

With respect to reimbursement requests, the submission of your claim for reimbursement should be made as soon as reasonably possible. Failure to give CCMC notice within the 30 days will not invalidate or reduce your claim unless CCMC is prejudiced by the failure to receive such notice. Under state law, CCMC may not cancel the membership due to excessive usage of the program by a member.
