The RAC has signed a new five-year contract to provide roadside assistance services to Groupe PSA, the second largest car manufacturer in Europe.
The deal, which was won following a competitive tender process, will see the RAC’s patrols supporting drivers of more than half a million Peugeot, Citroën, Vauxhall and DS cars and vans, and covers both consumer and fleet customers driving in the UK and continental Europe.
As part of the contract, the RAC will also be providing its extensive technical knowledge of Groupe PSA vehicles – both past and present – directly to various teams within Groupe PSA companies, including to dealerships and product development teams, to help in diagnosing and fixing faults more quickly than ever – delivering a better service to drivers.
RAC business roadside managing director Phil Ryan said: “With a shared ethos around putting drivers at the heart of everything we do, Groupe PSA and the RAC are well aligned and we are thrilled to be working together.
“We believe it is our focus on doing what is best by our customers, which includes rolling out new breakdown technology that can help our roadside patrols and the teams in our operational centres who support them, that sets us apart from the competition.”
