I’ve been with RAC car insurance over 3 years. Had to cancel policy due to the car failing it’s MOT and not being repairable. They made me pay the equivalent of over 5 months worth of payments to cancel. I had nine months left so still needed to proceed. Thank you RAC, you’ve lost my business.

Not the service it once was. Seven hours wait for assistance and the ETA shifted nine times whilst waiting, every time getting longer and longer to the point where I genuinely thought they wouldn’t turn up at all. Not worth the money.

It amazes me how companies like these are legally permitted to operate. It seems like they put themselves in direct opposition to their customer and that at every level and every interaction, they are at war with you, making life as difficult as they possibly can. It makes for a horrible experience. But RAC are the worst
