Welcome to the all new RAC Route Planner, which has been redesigned to make it easier for you to plan routes, get traffic updates and work out your travel mileage. To improve how you find out about traffic issues along your route we have developed a separate section for Traffic News, which gives you the ability to find traffic issues by location as well as our unique ability to plot issues along your route. We've also added a separate section for our Mileage Calculator tool, which can help you work out how much journeys cost, what you can claim back in business mileage and information about your CO2 emissions.
The route finder service provides maps and driving directions for the UK, Europe and beyond, as well as giving you the opportunity to find hotels wherever you're going in the UK. You can also generate directions that are fully integrated with customisable real-time traffic updates and our fuel cost calculator using the advanced options in the main Route Planner section. The functionality provides specific city driving maps for London and European route directions for longer trips abroad.
The RAC is always looking for new ways to help you plan your journey. Our new maps feature adds to the functionality of the route planner to help find hotels, garages and car dealerships by location, as well as being able to easily see the weather and traffic news near you.
Our new route finder services are intended to improve our mapping capabilities. We'll continue to work on improving our Route Planner, so if you have any feedback or notice any issues, please let us know through our contact us service.
Our initial re-launch is just the first step in our development. We'll soon be adding RAC member features that we'll be making available to everyone for a limited time, including adding weather information to the maps and being able to set up email traffic alerts for your regular routes.
