Praise for our European Breakdown service
"We Broke down in the south of France recently and the RAC were marvellous. We can't recommend them highly enough"
"A big thanks to the RAC for helping me out on this trip to Austria, my poor car finally died. They have arranged a hire car for the week and my return flight home. Never go away without the correct cover"
"Thanks to RAC for saving our family holiday - we broke down with 4 children in Southern France on the way from Spain - and quickly organised overnight accommodation, transportation and hire cars for the 6 of us."
