RAC Car Warranties

Tax, fuel and insurance – the cost of running a car is enough already for most drivers. But what if your car breaks down without warning?

A mechanical or electrical failure can cost you a lot of money to repair if you’re not covered by a manufacturer warranty. But that’s where an RAC car warranty can help, protecting you against many common faults to give you full peace of mind.

What is a car warranty?

A car warranty – or mechanical breakdown insurance – is designed to protect you and your car in the event of an unforeseen breakdown. Think of it like a safety net. While the actual level of cover can vary from policy to policy, car warranties will usually cover the most important parts.

If your vehicle does suffer a fault or failure, being covered by a car warranty means you aren’t left alone to deal with it. Warranties don’t just take care of the cost of replacement parts. They also cover labour and extras such as car hire, too. And, for many, it proves a smart investment.

Do I need an RAC car warranty from ALA?

New cars often come with a manufacturer warranty as standard. Such warranties usually last 3 years (or a set number of miles), although some car makes like Hyundai or Kia now offer much longer coverage. So, if you’re buying a new car, you’ll have that peace of mind from the outset.

But not everyone drives a young car bought from new. An extended RAC car warranty, supplied by ALA, is designed for those drivers.

It can be a great solution for anyone keeping their car beyond its original cover period. It’s also useful for anyone about to buy a used car. The original manufacturer warranty can’t usually be transferred to a second owner and a used car warranty is sometimes the only way to get peace of mind.

One of the most important reasons to get an RAC warranty, however, is the cost of repairs. If it makes you shudder to think how much a breakdown could cost you, this could be the answer.
