Ever since its foundation in 1897, RAC has been consistently at the forefront in developing motoring services - from introducing uniformed patrols in 1901 and roadside emergency telephone boxes in 1912 right through to the present day when we boast the world's most advanced computer systems to deal with calls for roadside assistance.
RAC Members enjoy access to an enormous range of motoring products and services throughout their driving lives, ranging from the familiar and much appreciated roadside assistance in the event of a breakdown to continually updated legal and technical advice and up-to-the-minute travel information.
In March 2005, Aviva plc acquired RAC for around £1.1 billion. The acquisition brings together RAC's powerful brand and customer base with the expertise and leading position in motor insurance of Aviva Insurance (part of Aviva). Aviva is the UK's largest insurer. It is a leading provider of life, pensions and investment products and one of the largest Financial Adviser providers. Aviva plc is the UK's largest general insurer with a market share of around 14%, with a focus on insurance for individuals and small businesses.
