RAC makes highly popular RAC Car Warranty available online to give protection against unexpected repair bills
The RAC is giving drivers the chance to protect themselves against unexpected repair bills by launching a new online-only warranty product.

The 12-month warranty has a £2,000 total claim limit which covers the cost of labour and parts needed to fix mechanical or electrical failures. This gives drivers complete peace of mind as it is well above the average repair cost of £449.1/2

Cover begins from day one and requires no vehicle inspection, with hassle-free claims made by booking an appointment at RAC approved garages nationwide online.

As with all warranties, wear and tear issues are excluded and a vehicle cannot have a pre-existing condition.

Costing £300, with a monthly payment option coming shortly, RAC Car Warranty can be purchased easily online. It is the latest product to be launched by the RAC Service, Maintenance and Repair division which boasts a rapidly growing fleet of RAC Mobile Mechanics operating in and around the country’s 20 biggest cities who service and repair customers’ cars at their homes and workplaces at highly competitive prices, saving them the hassle of having to get to and from the garage. Full services are available from just £205, interim services from just £191 and an oil and filter change £152 before the myRAC members’ discount.3

Customers who book via the free myRAC app receive a £20 exclusive discount.

While RAC Warranty is only sold via the web, it has a designated customer service phone line – 0330 159 1218 – which can answer questions about the product, help with claims or handle any concerns customers may have.

Paul Coward, chief executive of RAC Servicing, Repairs and MOT, said: “Our warranty product has long been relied on by thousands of people buying a used car as one of the best products of its type, so we’re thrilled to now let even more drivers take advantage of it via our website for their existing car, giving them protection against unexpected repair bill.

“As well as being quick and easy to buy online, just as importantly, it’s very straightforward to make a claim as all customers have to do is book an appointment at one of our approved garages or an RAC Mobile Mechanic, either via our website or by contacting our dedicated customer service team by phone.”
