Breakdown Insurance Cover
This complete and comprehensive package comes with a high level of cover as standard at a low premium. We believe it is very cost effective and provides financial security against motor breakdowns.
RAC will attempt to repair your vehicle if you are more than a quarter of a mile away from your residence. They will also help bring your vehicle and up to 16 passengers (if your vehicle is a minibus) to a location in the UK when a repair cannot be made roadside.
If the wrong fuel is put into your vehicle by mistake, a representative from the RAC will remove, flush and drain the liquid from the system to rectify the problem. They will also refill your vehicle with 10 litres of fuel and dispose of the extracted liquids properly.
At Home Repair
Your vehicle may breakdown before you have even set off from your home or within a quarter of a mile from your address. If this happens, the RAC will visit your house and try to repair your vehicle so you can be on your way.
Don't worry about being stranded in the middle of nowhere. A representative from the RAC will come to your rescue and tow your vehicle back home or to a specified location anywhere in the UK if they cannot repair the vehicle roadside. They will also be able to provide transportation for up to 16 passengers who are traveling with you or help with alternate accommodation.
The onward travel cover comes as standard in this policy and gets you back on the road if your vehicle cannot be repaired. This provides you with a replacement vehicle for one day or £150 per person (£25 per person if a minibus / £500 in total) to arrange alternative transport and accommodation whilst the vehicle is fixed.
The European breakdown cover provides protection against breakdowns while you are abroad.
- Breakdown before departure - If your vehicle breaks down within 24 hours of the departure date, the RAC will provide you with a replacement vehicle for up to 14 days with a limit of £125 per day and total of £1,500.
- European roadside assistance - If your vehicle breaks down abroad, the RAC can arrange the recovery to a local garage and contribute money towards fixing the vehicle if it can be repaired on the same day (if parts are required then the RAC will organise the distribution of the items for you).
- Vehicle home recovery - Any vehicles that are unrepairable will be returned to the owner's home or the RAC will pay up to £600 for transport to help you collect the vehicle after it has been repaired. The passengers of the vehicle will also be provided alternative transport home via trains, planes or taxis.
- Break-in repairs - The RAC will pay up to £175 for emergency repairs to your vehicle after someone has broken into it.
- Replacement driver - If your designated driver is unfit to drive due to medical conditions then the RAC will provide a replacement driver for you.
