Our RAC app has all your motoring needs in one place. Check out our handy route planner with live traffic information and road works, as well as all the latest motoring news and advice. And if you break down, our ‘Rescue Me’ function means it’s easier for us to find you so we can get to you even faster.
Download our app and see for yourself.
Key features include:
- Rescue me
The “Rescue Me” function provides your postcode and/ or location, so we don’t have to spend time trying to find you if you break down or have an accident.
- Route Planner
Our route planner shows you clearly how to get to your end destination, so you can plan the quickest route for every journey. You can also work out the cost of a journey using our expenses calculator or - if you’re car-sharing- the cost per passenger. If you need to leave at a certain time, our route planner will work out when you’re expected to get to your destination, based on normal traffic conditions at the time you leave.
Don’t get caught out by traffic- our app shows real-time traffic flow information as red (heavy) / amber (slow)/ green (moving), so if you need to, you can plan an alternative route and avoid delays. You can also see planned road works, road closures and traffic incidents to find out how these could impact your journey.

What's New in Version 5.1.0
We’re regularly improving our app to make driving easier and safer for motorists.
We’ve now made it easier for you to see traffic incidents, roadworks and traffic near you. If you’re planning a journey, zoom out on the map to see traffic problems along your route. You can also turn off any of the traffic information using the settings icon at the top of the map.
Look out for more updates coming soon.
Old RAC app still available. WITH DOTS! Read On.
If you want the old RAC app back it's still available as the RAC app just under another name,"Driver Assist". Just search for this on the App Store and you will find it is the old RAC app supported by Barclays......just supported, they have nothing else to do with it other than the Supported By Barclays statement and their blue eagle logo on the app thumbnail. I now use this every day as it's the old RAC app complete with dots and incident list just like we all used previously. There are only two reviews on there one of which is mine. Everyone should download it and leave positive reviews to make it more popular so they hopefully never shelve it, I don't know if they're (Apps) expensive to run and keep updated as there are no adverts with the Driver Assist app and it's free! I won't bother with the new RAC app until they change it back to the old app with no stupid improvements and extras which are of no use. It's no wonder that there are so many negative reviews the new app is bland pointless rubbish!
Never used the old version but think this absolutely suits my needs. Looks just like Google option but with more enhancements. Don't understand the adverse comments but these seem to be from previous version users so can understand reluctance to change. However , pretty obvious that red means a problem. So as a be user have no issues.
A black mark though was when I downloaded the app - why would anyone want to be bombarded with all those adverts - and who is going to look at them all!!
Bring back the dots!
As previous reviews have already said you have not listened to what your consumers want.
The new version is difficult to read at a glance, pale writing on a white background… that's just ridiculous. The dots were clear and gave almost a pin point to where the problem was. Now, even after the update, lots of roads appear red or orange in colour with no explanation as to why, this is confusing.
I, along with others, was hoping that you'd listen to all the previous comments about the first update- clearly not as the newest version is still awful.
Sort it out and quick.
