The RAC, VHD and Europ Assistance have signed a new agreement to strengthen their position as European-wide motoring service business partners.

This new agreement will bring together unrivalled levels of technical expertise, experience and reach across Europe.

RAC Business Services director David Wallace explains the benefit for customers here in the UK and Republic of Ireland: “what this means for our customers is that they will benefit from the RAC’s expertise in delivering breakdown and innovative roadside services across 26 countries in Europe, all this enhanced by centralized account management.”

"The aim of the new agreement is to provide them with one single trusted partner which can help them assist their drivers and dealers across Europe.”
