If you've broken down and need to contact RAC
If you added RAC Breakdown Assistance to your car insurance policy, here's how to report your breakdown:
If you have a European Emergency, please call +44 141 243 2897
If you don't have this optional extra, RAC may still be able to help but you will be charged a fee.
Adding RAC Breakdown Assistance to your policy
Never get stuck on the roadside again. Our collaboration with the RAC ensures you get back on the road as soon as possible.
RAC patrols fix 4 out of 5 vehicles at the roadside, within an impressive average of 30 minutes. So if you do need their help, it won't be long until you're moving again.
