RAC Breakdown Cover FAQ

Who are the RAC?

Formed in 1897, the RAC (or Royal Automobile Club, as it was then known) has always been at the forefront of roadside assistance service in the UK. Responsible for many breakthroughs in vehicle recovery, the RAC currently has over 8 million breakdown customers covering both personal and corporate drivers.

What types of breakdown cover does the RAC provide?

The RAC offer a wide range of breakdown cover types including UK cover, multi-trip and single trip European cover, motorbike breakdown cover, caravan/motorhome breakdown cover, business breakdown cover, personal breakdown cover and family/multi-car breakdown policies.

What breakdown cover packages are available from the RAC?

RAC breakdown membership comes with Roadside cover as standard. To this basic roadside assistance, customers can add a number of additional cover options, including:

RAC National Recovery

This optional extra allows you to have your vehicle towed to any UK destination if it cannot be repaired at the roadside.

RAC At Home Cover

This upgrade extends RAC assistance services to within ¼ mile of your home address.

RAC Replacement Hire Car

This option adds cover for alternative transport or accommodation if your vehicle cannot be fixed immediately.

RAC Key Replace

If you opt for this extra RAC will replace your cars keys if they are lost, stolen or broken by accident.

How do I get a breakdown cover quote from the RAC?

RAC cover costs vary depending on the type of cover you want and the optional extras you choose. You can get a personalised quote for RAC recovery service over the phone or via their website. Their website includes a quick and simple quote facility via which you can tailor your cover, get an instant cover quote and buy direct online.

What is the latest RAC Breakdown Cover special offer?

Like other breakdown recovery providers, the RAC have regular time-limited promotions to sweet the deal for new roadside assistance members. You can find out the details of the latest RAC breakdown special offer in our comparison table above or from RAC’s website.

How can I renew my breakdown membership with the RAC?

RAC will contact you regarding renewal before your current breakdown membership term expires. The best way for existing customers to renew or make amendments to their policy is to contact the RAC Membership team over the phone.
