Not all breakdown providers are the same, and when it comes to choosing the right car breakdown cover for you, we know that you have a lot of choice and a lot to think about. To help make your decision making process a little easier, you can compare breakdown cover with the RAC using this helpful comparison chart.

Car breakdown cover comparison

Different car breakdown cover providers offer different levels of coverage, so before you can compare breakdown cover it is important to understand what you are looking for.

Should you experience a car breakdown while out on the road, having the right level of breakdown cover can help you to get back on the move again so you can continue with your journey. When it comes to car breakdown cover, it's not just about getting to you quickly, it's about getting you going again. Our patrols fix 4 out of 5 cars there and then at the roadside - and with roadside labour and fitting included in the cost of your cover, there are no nasty surprises. You can rest assured you'll have Britain's most experienced provider by your side, with 118 years’ experience in rescuing our members on the roadside.
