What our customers are saying

I find searching for insurance a bit daunting. However, I was really pleased with the service from RAC. They were very helpful and explained things really well.

Miss R, Harrogate

Best company for car insurance so far.

Mr A, Lancing

Should have changed to RAC years ago!

Mr P, Rutherglen

Excellent customer care. RAC went out of their way to make sure we had the right cover for us.

Mr R, South Queensferry

If only all companies were as capable and efficient as the RAC.

Mr S, Caerphilly

Service was very easy. Have already recommended RAC to family and friends and they have changed to you.

Mr S. Bodmin

Dealing with RAC insurance is a revelation compared to our last insurer. RAC gets top marks...

Mr W, Falmouth

RAC staff were very sympathetic and understanding when I had to make a claim.

Mrs K, Ilminster

You cannot improve on perfection...

Mrs P, Llantwit Fardre

I have had to deal with other insurance companies and none have been as quick and a pleasure to deal with. I will be very happy to stay with RAC.

Mrs R, Garnant

RAC explained everything to me in 'laymans terms' and took the time to talk to me and made the whole experience very pleasant.

Ms H, Pulborough

My impression was that the RAC site is more user-friendly and straightforward than many other sites I have visited.

Mr C, Saxmundham

More about Car Insurance

Motorists in the UK are required by law to have valid car insurance. Driving without motor insurance is illegal and could lead to a fine, penalty points or disqualification.
 
If you are involved in any kind of road accident, car insurance can protect you, your vehicle and other road users by providing financial compensation to cover the costs of any damage or injuries. The minimum legal requirement for car insurance is third party, which will provide cover if you cause damage or injury to another person, vehicle, animal or property in a road incident.

However, third party insurance does not cover the potentially high costs of repairing any damage to your own car, or cover you if your vehicle is stolen or damaged in a fire. Upgrading to comprehensive car insurance will provide you with the highest cover and protect against damage to your own vehicle, even if you are to blame for the accident.

Car Insurance news and advice

Car insurance is a legal requirement for driving on UK roads. You can run an online check or visit your local police station to confirm that a car is insured.

  

Dash cams are cameras designed for continuous recording when you are driving to provide video evidence in case of an accident.

  

There are a number of ways to try to lower your car insurance premiums including nurturing your ‘no-claims,’ keeping your details up to date, and ensuring you have the right cover.

  

Failing to stop after an accident, whether or not someone is hurt or property is damaged, is a criminal offence.

  

‘Flash for cash’ is a recent car insurance fraud phenomenon where criminals flash their headlights to let other drivers out of a junction, then crash into them on purpose.

  

Car insurance is essential for driving a car on UK roads as it provides financial protection against vehicle damage as well as providing cover for injuries to drivers, passengers or pedestrians.

  

If you are hit by an uninsured driver, there are many things you should do including taking down their details and noting the extent of the damage.

  

Drivers who make no claims are eligible to annual discounts on their car insurance, and with RAC Car Insurance this can be up to 70%.

  

Similar to flash for cash, this scam involves fraudsters purposefully crashing into innocent motorists in a bid to make money from an exaggerated claim.
