As you would expect from one of the UKs leading Recovery Breakdown companies, RAC offer a wide range of recovery services to their UK members. Interestingly there is no RAC Repair Cover element available, which has left the way clear for the AA Repair Cover service to snatch some market share. However, there are a number of RAC branded packages which include various elements of their services, known as RAC Roadside, RAC Recovery, RAC home cover, RAC home start + recovery and RAC comprehensive cover which includes RAC Home Start, roadside, breakdown recovery and onward travel cover)
