Q. How often can I call the legal helpline?

As long as you’re an RAC member, there’s no limit to the number of times you can call us. You can call us about multiple issues, even if you’re just looking for reassurance.

Q. Will I talk to the same person every time I call?

We can’t guarantee that you’ll always talk to the same legal advisor. But we won’t ask you for the full story every time – we’ll just ask for an update on where you’ve got to, and we’ll take it from there.
