Bottom line 3 years with them and quoted £860 for 1.6 diesel, 43 year old with 6 years no claims, i was quoted £190-£280 MAX by 5 other insurers with better policies ! i saved over £500 with one free call
RAC was trusted brand, not now, as insurance broker they are disgusting, £30 charge for every phone call ever made, they dont insure you, they punt you out and charge another £100 on top, plus the £30s for any call, one internet search will save you 100s, if you like yourself dont renew your policy, i lapsed last year and was going to be £200+ to cancel policy, on reflection i would NEVER put another £ in there hands, they dont make any effort to get you a competitive Quote, they are cynical and unwilling to help at any level, take a day and save yourself the hardship of a Poor service provider

What a terrible company - I have had a company car for years and no claims at all! Due to car allowance I have leased a car. Despite Lex providing details of my No claims; RAC would not accept!!!!! They claim it’s not valid so I asked to cancel and they stated it would take effect at midnight that day. Instead they cancelled it at 15:30 putting me and my vehicle at severe risk. Would not recommend- try LV!

Rip off company!
Took a breakdown, parts and labour insurance for a 7 year old car and they declined to cover a broken clutch and forced me to use one of their authorised dealers which charged£1700 pounds even before they would diagnose which parts were broken! Both RAC and their dealer coerced me to pay upfront if I wanted the insurer to have a look. RAC parts and labour Customer services is terrible and they will hide behind 'Wear and Tear' clause for anything you try to claim... basically the insurance does not work for old cars... and it is pointless for new cars!
DO NOT RECOMMED

RIP OFF

After buying another car (7 years younger than current one and no bigger - going from Fiat Punto to Vauxhall Corsa), I go to swap my RAC insurance to the new car to be told it will be over £100+!! more for the year? So I go to cancel and am told I'll ...

After buying another car (7 years younger than current one and no bigger - going from Fiat Punto to Vauxhall Corsa), I go to swap my RAC insurance to the new car to be told it will be over £100+!! more for the year? So I go to cancel and am told I'll be charged a £50 cancellation fee PLUS £24 admin fee, so as you can imagine, hardly worth me cancelling. But hey RAC!! you won't see me for dust this time next year. You rip people off. I've just searched like for like quotes on Meerkat and found I could have my insurance at my current price for the size of car I have brought. I am appalled companies like you can get away with daylight robbery! This is the last you will see of me!

You will spend forever on hold trying to speak with anyone. You will have to listen to endless information before you even get put on hold. You will be subject to huge premium increases every year. You will subjected to endless calls from ambulance chasers when making a claim. A truly terrible company to deal with.

Filled in details online. Obtained quote of £377.08. Tried to pay having put in purchase date - and suddenly 'the site was closed due to maintenance'. Rang up - 10 minutes listening to drivel before I got to an adviser. Lots more sales chat - finally confirmed the quote of £377.08 and eventually go to the payment part - and I was then told. 'The price is £553 - OK?'
Hang on - what ... No explanation for the huge price hike, just told 'That's now the price...' No explanation for not honoring the quote which on screen I was told was valid for today. He just kept saying - 'That's the price - OK? No - that's really NOT OK! Disgraceful! Will not buy any RAC products from now on.

Gave a cheap quote for the first year but upped it considerably for the following year, for the same cover. Automatically renews which is also a pain. If you don't check your renewal quote within a few weeks, it disappears and you have no access to your documents, price paid, etc, even online.

Appalling. They automatically renewed my policy at an increased premium, it took me 8 days to get through on the phone to tell them I did not want to renew, then they charged me a £25 fee and £33.17 for the 8 days cover, even though I had taken out a policy with eSure. It then took me hours and hours to get through to pay the charges. Total rip off.

My brother collapsed at hospital in a diabetic coma and was in and out of consciousness. I rushed to the hospital before he was transferred to another hospital...I rang, as my brother's insurers, these clowns to get me put on the insurance for 1 hour so I could drive his Discovery home...they wouldn't unless we started a brand new policy, for 1 hours insurance! I haven't had a bump in 20 +years, no DD, no claims for 20+years...I have 1 speeding for doing 34 in a 30 (shoot me) I had 3rd party for any car on my own policy but then when accidents happen when you haven't insurance! Pillocks. We have now moved the policy to another company even though it cost us more.
