Deals on family breakdown cover

Family breakdown cover is a cost-effective way to cover multiple people you live with on a single policy. It costs a minimum of £3 a month to add an extra person to your breakdown policy, depending on the level of cover you have.

  • You can cover up to 5 people on the same policy (as long as everyone lives at the same address)
  • Just select ‘personal cover’ and add the number of people you need 
  • Everyone will be covered as drivers or passengers in any vehicle, including cars, motorbikes and vans.

Alternatively, you can also cover multiple vehicles on one policy if you choose personal cover. This means each vehicle is covered no matter who is driving when it breaks down. You can cover up to 3 vehicles registered to the same address. 

What's our cheapest breakdown cover?

The cheapest cover from the RAC starts from just £9.50 a month. For this, you’ll get our ‘Standard’ cover – which includes roadside and home rescue, garage support and alternative transport too.



  • Roadside and home rescue
    Unlike others, we won’t make you upgrade to be covered at home. We’ll rescue you anywhere as standard. 
  • 3 callouts a year
    We’ll rescue you up to 3 times each year.
  • 10-mile tow
    If we can’t fix you there and then, we’ll tow you anywhere within 10 miles. For example, to a local garage or back home. We’ll also take your passengers with us. 
  • Fault report for the garage
    Your patrol will give you a list of faults, so you can easily let the garage know what’s wrong with your vehicle. 
  • 20-mile taxi from the garage
    If your vehicle goes to the garage, we’ll reimburse you for the cost of a taxi ride up to 20 miles.
