How long do RAC take to respond to a breakdown? The car is safe but doesnt drive well.. If i was to ring now would they be out straight away to take it to its destination? I wont be using the car for a while and need the car to be taken down south.

only take car to nearest garage or within reason, some cover will take you and passengers to a destination if on a journey but not the car i think

I have the nationwide recovery etc... on my membership. So i was assuming it would be covered also? Just trying to figure it out.

They will try and fix the car as it is, otherwise take it to a garage. If you have the nationwide recovery you are entitled to transportation to your final destination but I think that means you'd have to go too (as the whole idea of breakdown cover is that you've broken down on a journey and you need transportation to your end desination).

But I'm just guessing, I've only needed to call them once!
