RAC Breakdown cover
Murphy’s Law could have been written for drivers. Given the increasingly freaky weather we have to put up with these days, it’s odds-on that Murphy will decide to cast his icy stare at your vehicle in the middle of cold and/or wet weather, while you’re trying to make it that last few miles through yet another motorway tailback.
Breaking Down is no Fun!
Meanwhile, the kids will be tired and hungry, your car will be loaded down with everything you might need to keep them happy, plus a bunch of supplies and, invariably, the Christmas presents. That will typically be when you find out that your immaculately-maintained vehicle succumbs to gale-force winds driving water into the electrics or the clutch cable decides to let go.
Breakdown Cover is Invaluable
At times like this, a good breakdown recovery service isn’t just valuable, it’s invaluable. However, breakdowns have an annoying way of taking place at exactly the same time they’re happening to a bunch of other people.
This is why it’s important to make sure your recovery service has the resources necessary to deal with a sudden influx of calls from stranded motorists. A 2010 survey of UK vehicle recovery services found that the RAC Breakdown Cover has more patrols for each member than any competitor.
RAC has largest patrol network
As the driver of a seven-seater, you are more likely than most drivers to be carrying a large number of passengers and a full load of cargo, so you’ll be relieved to have the biggest patrol network at your disposal when you find your battery has gone flat during a sub-zero night.
The RAC has been supporting drivers for more than a century. That experience, combined with some 2,000 patrols, leads to the RAC managing to make repairs to the overwhelming number of call-outs by the roadside.
Reach you and your vehicle in 40 minutes
The RAC aims to get to you within just 40 minutes, no matter what time of day or night, year-round. If you find yourself in a vulnerable position, they’ll give you priority.
RAC Cover starts at £28 a year
For a low rate of just £28 per year, the RAC will provide essential cover, as long as you’re more than quarter of a mile from your home. The RAC’s Nationwide Recovery policy will transport your vehicle back to your home or to a single address in Britain.
It will also provide transportation for you and as many as seven passengers, making it ideal for drivers of seven-seat vehicles. If you get sick and nobody else in the car can drive the vehicle, the RAC will still make sure you are transported.
Expanded RAC Cover
To make sure you are covered for breakdowns at home, like flat batteries for example, you may want to opt for At Home cover, which expands your protection to cover home and up to a quarter of a mile away.
The RAC offers a range of options to extend the services available under your policy. Onward Travel will help you reach your destination in the unlikely event the RAC patrol is unable to get your car back on the road.
As an RAC Member, you’ll be able to enjoy a wide range of related services that can make life easier for both a driver and passengers. With a Breakdown Warranty, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you don’t have to worry about the risk of expensive repair bills.
The best part is that even if you have not yet decided to join the RAC, you can still find plenty of excellent tips and information to help make your journey’s easier and safer.
