A consumer survey has found that RAC breakdown cover is the best provider when it comes to customer service.

Amongst UK breakdown services, RAC is the best, according to a survey of 25,000 UK adults carried out by the UK Customer Service Index (UKCSI), performing better than all other providers.

The categories that respondents were asked to rate car breakdown cover providers on included professionalism, quality and efficiency, ease of doing business, problem solving, and timeliness.

RAC breakdown cover was the highest scorer, with a mark of 86 out of 100. Of the 156 UK breakdown providers surveyed, RAC was ranked fifth overall across other sectors, including retail, services and automotive.

Commenting on the accolade, Neil Thompson, director of rescue service delivery at RAC, said: “I am immensely proud of this achievement; it is fantastic news for RAC as it demonstrates our ability to deliver exceptional service to our members when they call us for help.

He added: “RAC staff genuinely pride themselves on being the best customer service professionals in our industry. This is a clear indication of their level of professionalism not only because we are seen as the best in the Rescue and Recovery industry and as one of the best customer service organisations in the UK.”
