The RAC difference

When considering breakdown cover, it’s important to know the differences between providers so you can choose a policy that meets all your needs. It’s not always about just cost but what you drive, how far you drive and the conditions you normally drive in. With so many factors to consider, finding out which provider is best for you can prove tricky, so we’ve looked at what makes RAC Breakdown Cover different.

Read our RAC Difference guide below to learn how the RAC is best suited to meet all your car breakdown cover needs.

What is the RAC difference?

  • We rescue at the roadside and at home as standard, unlike the AA and Green Flag.
  • We are Britain's most experienced breakdown provider, with 120 years’ experience in offering exceptional service
  • We repair 4 out 5 vehicles at the roadside, on average within 30 minutes
  • All roadside labour and fitting costs included in your membership, so there will be no nasty surprises
  • Our Patrols carry over 500 parts and tools onboard all our vans so we can bring the garage to you
  • Unlike some, we'll recover you if you're involved in an accident*

The rise of the ‘puncture, no spare’ breakdown led our technical experts to develop an innovative and highly effective solution. The first option for an RAC Patrol is always to try to repair a puncture. If this isn’t possible, fitting the vehicle’s spare wheel would normally be the next step. Unfortunately, half of all new vehicles rolling off production lines no longer come with a spare wheel as standard. To overcome this, we've created a universal spare wheel designed to speed up the fix time and minimise inconvenience for our members who experience a puncture without having a spare, getting you back on the road, without the need for a tow to a garage.

As cars have become more computer oriented, it has become increasingly difficult for your average driver to fix them. So we’ve equipped all our patrols with some of the most advanced breakdown diagnostic software in the world. The investment in RACScan+ allows the RAC to diagnose faults across multiple vehicle systems on today’s high-spec, high-tech cars, which would otherwise have to be towed to a garage for repair, our focus is always on getting you fixed at the roadside and moving again.
