Clients of Alan Boswell Group can benefit from discounted cover from the RAC, one of the UK’s leading providers of motor breakdown cover.
The RAC are one of the most trusted names in the UK. They attended over 2m breakdowns last year – that’s one every 18 seconds! Here are some of the other benefits of RAC breakdown cover through ABG:
We are not on any internet comparison sites and do not have any cuddly toys or gimmicky marketing tricks. We simply put all our effort in providing our customers the best cover, for the right price combined with a premium-level service.
We believe in providing our customers competitive car insurance with products suitable for their needs. Being independent we are able to offer impartial advice on the best product for your needs. Having access to multiple insurance companies we are able to command competitive pricing ensuring you get value for money.
I have used Alan Boswell for about 15 years now and have always been exceptionally pleased with the service.
A breakdown can happen to anyone at any time – and it’s not just old, unreliable cars that can breakdown. Punctures and flat batteries are the two biggest culprits of a call-out and they can happen to any car, new or old.
The cost of a call-out can be very high and with many recovery services you’ll just get towed to the nearest garage for a repair.
Alan Boswell Group recommend breakdown cover through the RAC, who repair 4 out of 5 vehicles at the roadside. Alan Boswell Group clients can also benefit from RAC breakdown cover at a reduced rate (from just £165 per year if you have a motor insurance policy with us).

A lot of people think breakdown cover isn’t a necessity – so we’ve compiled a list of the main objections to taking out a motor breakdown policy:
Great, do you know what level of cover you have? Does it include at home or national recovery?
It’s worth checking the type of cover; personal or vehicle. Most bank accounts are personal cover which is great as it covers you if you’re travelling in any vehicle. But does anyone else drive your vehicle? Your partner, child or a relative?
That’s good, but do you know what level of cover you have and who it’s with? The RAC provide a repair over recover culture but some companies don’t. With 4 out of 5 vehicles fixed at the roadside you’ll be more likely to get on with your day when covered with RAC.
The two most common causes of breakdown are a puncture or a flat battery; these can happen to any vehicle.
Many modern vehicles now don’t even carry a spare wheel. Maybe worth checking.
Did you know RAC patrols fix over 80% of vehicles at the roadside? With over 500 parts carried 4 times out of 5 they can get your vehicle going again at the roadside. Remember your friend may be a mechanic, but you’ve still got to get your vehicle to them!
Even so, it may be worth checking with your local recovery company to understand how much they would charge to recover you, should you breakdown. Costs vary nationwide but it can be in the region of £150 and more for larger vehicles.
If you’re considering buying a campervan or motorhome, you’ll need to consider the type of license you need. We explore what type of driving licence you need in order to drive different motorhomes, as well as what you can do to upgrade your licence.
If you’ve converted a van into a camper, reclassifying it with the DVLA can lead to several benefits. We take a look at what some of those benefits are and what you need to do to reclassify your vehicle.
Typically, motorhomes are larger than campervans and have better on-board facilities, making them suitable for longer excursions at home or away. To find out which type of vehicle might be best for your needs, here’s what to consider before you make a decision.
