RAC Mobile Traffic Apps

The ultimate one-stop RAC app means you can now access our services anytime, anywhere.

You can find all the useful RAC services you need, including our popular route planner and traffic news, at your fingertips.

A wide range of RAC services are easily accessible while you’re on the go. So whether you’ve broken down and need to contact us from the road, you’ve had an accident and you’re not sure what to do next, or you need to plan the best route to your destination, you can do it all from your tablet or smartphone.

The iPhone app

Our new iPhone RAC app has all your motoring needs in one place. Check out our handy route planner with live traffic information, as well as all the latest motoring news and advice. And if you break down, our new ‘Rescue Me’ function means it’s easier for us to find you.

Key features include:

Rescue me

The new “Rescue Me” function provides your postcode and/ or location, so we don’t have to spend time trying to find you if you break down or have an accident.

Route Planner

Our route planner shows you clearly how to get to your end destination, so you can plan the quickest route for every journey. You can also work out the cost of a journey using our expenses calculator or - if you’re car-sharing- the cost per passenger. If you need to leave at a certain time, our route planner will work out when you’re expected to get to your destination, based on normal traffic conditions at the time you leave.


Don’t get caught out by traffic- our app shows real-time traffic flow information as red (heavy) / amber (slow)/ green (moving), so if you need to, you can plan an alternative route and avoid delays. You can also see planned road works, road closures and traffic incidents to find out how these could impact your journey.
