RAC Breakdown Customer Reviews
I signed up for RAC Breakdown on their website and wow, I'm glad I did. Just yesterday, after about a month under RAC Breakdown cover, my car just up and died on the M3. Within 30 minutes or so RAC was were there to help, and believe me I was terrified since my car had stopped right in the middle of traffic. They got the car safely to the side of the road and fixed the issue right there. I couldn't have been happier with their service and the friendly attitude of the chap who helped me.
On a side note, I opted for the vehicle cover for both of my cars and it was really easy to sort everything online. If you want to sign up it only takes a few minutes for a great peace of mind.
Thankfully I haven't had to use it, but the RAC Breakdown is pure peace of mind for me and my family. I have two sons who are new drivers, and I worry about them on the road constantly. With RAC Breakdown I've definitely felt a bit more comfortable knowing they have access to the help they need should problems occur on the road. I compared their cover to several other companies and I thought it was definitely the most comprehensive and reasonable priced as well.
