Unlike others, we won't make you upgrade to be covered at home or registered business address. We'll rescue you on your driveway or on the road as standard. And we'll always try to fix you on the spot, rather than towing you straight to a garage.
Tow & Taxi
With Van Lite if we can't fix you there and then, you'll get a 10-mile tow to the nearest garage or another destination. If your vehicle goes to the garage, we'll reimburse you for the cost of a taxi ride up to 20 miles. With Van Total we'll tow you, your passengers and your van anywhere in the UK - so you'll always get to your destination.
In the unlikely event we're unable to fix your vehicle at the roadside, with Van Total, we'll give you a replacement van for up to 2 days or provide overnight accommodation or cover alternative travel costs.
Supercharge your cover with RAC breakdown extras
With Battery Replace, you'll get a new battery worth up to £600 if yours can't be re-charged.
Legal Expense Insurance
If you have an accident that wasn't your fault, we'll help you claim back losses your motor insurance doesn't cover.
With Tyre Replace, you'll get up to £150 per tyre to repair or replace a damaged or punctured tyre.
Breakdown cover explained
What is van breakdown cover?
Van breakdown cover is there to help if your vehicle breaks down in the UK. For example, if you get a puncture or a flat battery. It means you can call for help and an expert will arrive to fix you on the spot or provide you with breakdown recovery to a nearby garage.
There are different levels of cover to choose from. Most providers only offer roadside assistance as standard. But at the RAC, we include roadside and home rescue, garage support and alternative transport with all our van breakdown cover options.
What types of breakdown cover are there?
You can buy breakdown cover for your van, or we also offer car breakdown cover, with cover for electric and hybrid vehicles as standard, plus taxis, minibuses and trucks. You can also choose a mix of vehicle types, with our mixed fleet cover.
We offer van specific breakdown cover because we know van drivers have different needs to the average road user.
Van Lite offers rescue anywhere with a 10-mile tow and 20-mile taxi from the garage. Van Total offers tow anywhere as well as a replacement van while yours is being fixed.
Vehicle breakdown cover means your vehicle is covered no matter who is driving. All our business breakdown policies cover your vehicle so you're covered no matter who is driving.
