Why get car insurance from RAC?

The RAC (Royal Automobile Club) was founded in 1897 and introduced the first roadside emergency telephone boxes in 1912.

It’s probably best known for its breakdown assistance, but it now sells a range of different insurance policies.

These include cover for vans, caravans, and motorbikes.  There's also short-term insurance, temporary insurance and classic car insurance on offer.

Away from vehicles, you can buy home and travel insurance from the RAC. The plus policy from the RAC gets five stars from Defaqto, while its basic policy is awarded three stars.
