RAC have more than eight million members who trust us as the breakdown specialists
The RAC has been around since 1897, and now has more than 8 million members, helping business as well as private motorists.
With headquarters in Birmingham and approximately 4,000 staff, the RAC operates from three bases. We offer vehicle and breakdown services through a nationwide, branded patrol force, focusing mainly on vehicle repair and recovery.
We use what we believe is one of the world's most advanced computer systems for handling roadside assistance calls. But we’re about more than helping people at the roadside. From insurance and vehicle inspections to legal services and real-time driving data, the RAC offers a solution for every motoring need.
The RAC is the motorist’s champion, and campaigns to support the interests of members and UK motorists at a national level. This includes advancing levels of road safety and voicing concerns about the increasing cost of motoring.
RAC Fuel Watch is a comprehensive guide to the latest UK unleaded petrol and diesel prices – both at the wholesale level and at the pump. RAC Fuel Watch analyses how prices changed through the previous month and compares the most recent prices with those from three, six and 12 months before.
