About the RAC

The RAC* helps its member drivers with roadside assistance when their vehicles break down.

Founded in 1897 as the Automobile Club of Great Britain, the RAC first introduced uniformed patrols to help those in need of motor assistance in 1901, followed by RAC breakdown telephone boxes, which first appeared in 1912.

Today, the RAC has more than 12 million members and continues to innovate with additions such as the UK's first van-mounted charger for electric cars that have run flat.

The orange, RAC-emblazoned vans, familiar to anyone who drives in the UK, carry no fewer than 500 parts and tools to help their engineers fix problems on-site.

In fact, the RAC is said to successfully get four out of five vehicles back in action at the roadside, while towing is used for those with more fundamental problems.

The RAC offers various types of membership with something to suit every driver, be it personal, vehicle-specific or business, for petrol, diesel, electric and hybrid vehicles* and motorbikes*.
