Buy an RAC car batteryWith the RAC battery service, should your car battery fail we can fit a new car battery for you. All you have to pay for is the battery; labour and fitting costs are included in your membership.

Every patrol carries a range of high specification car batteries which cover most cars on the road. Plus, if our Patrol doesn't have the car battery you need on the van, we'll source it for you from one of our suppliers across UK to make sure we get your vehicle moving again as quickly as possible.

We attend 500,000 battery-related call-outs and fit over 100,000 per year. When we fit a new battery for you, this is what we do:

  • With our expertise and using the latest technology we'll check that you definitely need a new car battery, so can be sure it’s not just flat or that something else is wrong:
  • If you need a new battery, we can supply you with a quality car battery so you avoid the inconvenience of making arrangements to get one yourself and can be sure you have a quality replacement.
  • Only our car batteries come with RAC’s mobile replacement guarantee – so if any car battery we've fitted is faulty within the guarantee period for your battery we'll repair/replace it at the roadside.
  • We'll even take away your old car battery for you and recycle it.

Call us on 0800 096 2968 to talk to us about our car battery fitting service or schedule a fitting. If you are concerned about your breakdown entitlement or have a no claims discount you wish to protect, please ask about our scheduled Battery Response service.
