Ever since its foundation in 1897, RAC has been consistently at the forefront in developing motoring services - from introducing uniformed patrols in 1901 and roadside emergency telephone boxes in 1912 right through to the present day when we boast the world’s most advanced computer systems to deal with calls for roadside assistance.
RAC Members enjoy access to an enormous range of motoring products and services throughout their driving lives, ranging from the familiar and much appreciated roadside assistance in the event of a breakdown to continually updated legal and technical advice and up-to-the-minute travel information.
RAC is headquartered in Birmingham with approximately 4,000 dedicated staff operating from four bases throughout the UK and provides motor-related services to both consumers and corporate clients. RAC offers vehicle and breakdown services through a nationwide, branded patrol force, focusing primarily on vehicle repair and recovery. In 2010, RAC’s patrol force of approximately 1,600 patrols attended to 2.5 million rescue breakdowns. In addition, RAC provides motor insurance broking services. RAC also offers a suite of legal and motor claims services, which provide both consumers and corporate customers with legal cover and advice as well as a range of claims management services.
