We’ll cover up to £150 of labour costs if repairs are completed the same day as the breakdown.

Vehicle Cover

Your vehicle is covered no matter who’s driving. We cover cars, motorbikes, vans, and campervans. Please note: your vehicle must fit within RAC specifications and can’t be used for business.

Roadside Assistance

If you break down at the roadside (more than ¼ mile from home) and we can’t fix your vehicle, we’ll tow you to a garage or a destination of your choice up to 10 miles away.
