If you've broken down, don't worry. As long as you have breakdown cover or a Premier policy, the RAC are on hand to help 24/7.

The quickest way to get help is to report your breakdown online or, if you prefer, you can call them on 0333 321 9818 (UK) or 00 33 472 43 52 55 (EU).

For deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired customers, simply text 'breakdown' to 07855 828 282

You can still call the RAC out if you don't have any breakdown cover but you'll most likely be charged a fee.

I'm having problems logging in

Sorry you're having problems logging in, we know it can be frustrating.

There are a few reasons why this could be the case, so check what the error message says at the top of the screen.

If it says Failed log in it means the details you're entering don't match our records, so please double check what you've entered.

If you see the message Already registered, it means you've already set up MyAccount so try signing in with the details you used when you registered.

Failed registration means the details you're using don't match the information you gave us when you bought your policy. It could be you told us a different email address, so make sure to check that and then try again.

Don't worry if you can't remember what password you used, just select Forgot password? and follow the instructions. We'll send you a reset email, so make sure to check your junk folder.

I'm having problems logging in

Sorry you're having problems logging in, we know it can be frustrating.

There are a few reasons why this could be the case, so check what the error message says at the top of the screen.

If it says Failed log in it means the details you're entering don't match our records, so please double check what you've entered.

If you see the message Already registered, it means you've already set up MyAccount so try signing in with the details you used when you registered.

Failed registration means the details you're using don't match the information you gave us when you bought your policy. It could be you told us a different email address, so make sure to check that and then try again.

Don't worry if you can't remember what password you used, just select Forgot password? and follow the instructions. We'll send you a reset email, so make sure to check your junk folder.

I'm having problems logging in

Sorry you're having problems logging in, we know it can be frustrating.

There are a few reasons why this could be the case, so check what the error message says at the top of the screen.

If it says Failed log in it means the details you're entering don't match our records, so please double check what you've entered.

If you see the message Already registered, it means you've already set up MyAccount so try signing in with the details you used when you registered.

Failed registration means the details you're using don't match the information you gave us when you bought your policy. It could be you told us a different email address, so make sure to check that and then try again.

Don't worry if you can't remember what password you used, just select Forgot password? and follow the instructions. We'll send you a reset email, so make sure to check your junk folder.
