Onward Travel

Onward travel is an essential extra for you to get the most out of your breakdown cover policy. Here at the RAC, we try our very best to get you back up and running as soon as possible after your vehicle breaks down.

However, if your vehicle can’t be fixed at the roadside, we can also help by making alternative arrangements for you to continue your journey.

We’ll provide you with options to help you get to where you want to go, whether it be through a replacement hire car, making use of alternative transport options or arranging overnight accommodation for you and your full party.


Hire Car

Should you require a temporary car if your vehicle cannot be fixed, onward travel will provide you with a small hatchback for up to 3 days. For more information please see our terms and conditions.

Alternative Transport

Another option to get you where you want to be, is to consider alternative transport – this could air, rail or taxi or other public transport. The RAC will reimburse you for your transport costs up to the value of £150 per person or up to £500 for the full party. For more information please see our terms and conditions.

Overnight Accommodation

You may decide that waiting for your vehicle to be fixed is best for you, if so the RAC will arrange  a one night stay up to the value of £150 per person or up to £500 for the full party. For more information please see our terms and conditions.

RAC breakdown patrols fix four out of five vehicles at the roadside within an average of 30 minutes.
