Founded in 1897, the RAC (Royal Automobile Club) introduced the first roadside emergency telephone boxes in 1912 and is best known for its breakdown assistance.
Although its focus is still very much on recovery services, it also provides a range of motoring-based insurance products, including cover for vans, caravans, motorbikes, and classic cars.
It also offers short-term car insurance, and home insurance, and travel insurance.
RAC Car Insurance is run by Junction, which is also responsible for the insurance arms of brands including Lloyds, Post Office, HSBC, M&S Bank, Halifax and Santander. Junction is part of BISL Limited, which owns a number of other insurance brands, including Bennetts, Budget, and Dial Direct.

How the type of car you drive affects the cost of car insurance
The type of car you drive can have a big effect on the cost of your car insurance. As you might expect, the cheapest cars to insure are usually the ones that are relatively cheap to buy, so if you’re looking for a car that won’t cost a small fortune to insure, go for a low-spec model with a small engine.
It’s worth noting that modifications can also bump up premium prices, so look out for cars that have had their engines tuned, or have had a body kit or any after-market add-on fitted, else you could be in for a shock when running insurance quotes.
