RAC expands warranty portfolio

The RAC has launched a new online-only warranty product for drivers.

The 12-month warranty has a £2,000 total claim limit which covers the cost of labour and parts needed to fix mechanical or electrical failures.

Cover begins from day one and requires no vehicle inspection, with hassle-free claims made by booking an appointment at RAC approved garages nationwide online.

Costing £300, with a monthly payment option coming shortly, RAC Car Warranty has been introduced by the RAC Service, Maintenance and Repair division.

Paul Coward, chief executive of RAC Servicing, Repairs and MOT, said: “Our warranty product has long been relied on by thousands of people buying a used car as one of the best products of its type, so we’re thrilled to now let even more drivers take advantage of it via our website for their existing car, giving them protection against unexpected repair bill.

“As well as being quick and easy to buy online, just as importantly, it’s very straightforward to make a claim as all customers have to do is book an appointment at one of our approved garages or an RAC Mobile Mechanic, either via our website or by contacting our dedicated customer service team by phone.”
