What is Onward Travel?

Onward Travel is usually an add-on for your breakdown cover. It helps you stay mobile if your vehicle needs a repair in a garage after a breakdown. For example, you could be covered for a taxi back home from the garage. Or a hire car to help you and your family continue your journey.

At the RAC, Onward Travel is available to buy as an add-on with unlimited cover. It covers you for a hire car for up to 3 days (age and licence restrictions apply). Or if you prefer, we can arrange overnight accommodation or costs towards public transport instead.

Benefits of having Onward Travel with your breakdown cover

  • You’ll have a back-up plan if your vehicle needs a repair in the garage

  • You can get a hire car for up to 3 days

  • If you prefer, we can arrange a hotel or cover the cost of public transport instead


How does Onward Travel work?

Onward Travel is there to keep you moving after a breakdown. If your patrol can’t fix you at the roadside and has to tow you to a garage for repair, you’ll get alternative transport to keep you moving, like a hire car. You can also get a hotel stay while you wait for your vehicle to be fixed
