What our members are saying

I didn’t realise how exceptional the RAC is. Unbelievably there was a breakdown truck with us within 50 minutes and he diagnosed a flat battery… or as the French say “Il est mort!”

Edmund and Fiona Collins

I have repeated this many times in the last week to people I have talked with, the RAC European breakdown cover was nothing short of first rate. That is the kind of service that you hope you will get, and are delighted when you get it.

Mr Carter

From both my wife and myself can we say how happy we were with this service and a special thank you to Lola and Selina in France who gave great service.

Mr & Mrs Butler

In a world which, at times, seems to be constantly complaining about poor service from organisations, I am moved to praise the ‘excellent’ service I have received lately from your European Breakdown service.

Malcolm K Payne

I’m aware that Opteven is a separate business, but this was not obvious during my dealings with the team – it was a ‘one RAC’ experience. And a world-class experience at that. I’m now telling everyone I know to sign up with the RAC!

Alan

I will remain a customer of the RAC and furthermore I will be informing the many people I am in contact with that your organisation is easily the best I have been a member of and that they should join immediately.

Mr Wyness
