    Posted: 01 Apr 2018 at 12:39pm
Hi. I have a question about the Nissan Breakdown cover I have with my new Qashqai. It says 'powered by RAC' so do I get an RAC login or policy number so I can register with them? I would rather use something like the RAC app on my phone rather than phoning Nissan if I break down (although with a new Qashqai, the chances are slim). 

I only got the new Qashqai N-Connecta 2 days ago, so just wondered if I am expecting an email or letter welcoming me to the RAC?

Cheers, Adam.

I have serviced my car for the last 6 years with Nissan, but never received any paperwork from RAC.  Never broken down either, fortunately Thumbs Up

When my battery died the other day I went onto Nissan cared4 website and got the Nissan Breakdown number... Which was answered by the RAC who only needed to know my car registration number to proceed.

I didn't get any paperwork from the RAC just the Nissan Assist card with the telephone number which is the RAC. They just ask for your name and registration number. I too used it recently for the first time on my 2016 N Connecta when I had a flat battery. The RAC replaced the battery there and then. All under the warranty.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Much appreciated. I suppose there is no harm in just phoning up Nissan Assist if I ever need them. I wanted to use the RAC mobile app you see, but you can only log in with an account and policy number. I see the You+Nissan app has an Assist section with phone number and your current location coordinates. 

I usually pay for the AA which is like £80-100 a year each December. I guess I can cancel this now. Thumbs Up

I don't know if this still applies but a few years ago I got new car with breakdown included, rang and cancelled by AA membership, and they explained they would hold the balance of my years membership until I required it again.

Never went back to reclaim it.

Breakdown cover with Nissan is only the basic RAC package I believe. No relay

Oh really? I thought Nissan Assist was good cover in UK, Europe and even near your home? 

I don't really want to keep paying the AA if I already have cover.

You also get 12 months RAC cover free with every Nissan service, at least at Westway Nissan dealerships.  Although I got no paperwork or anything telling me this after the last service so I had to ring them back to confirm that yes I am still covered for another 12 months.

I just received a reply from the RAC with regards to Nissan cover. 

Unfortunately, as your membership is a corporate cover with your dealership, we wouldn't send out RAC membership cards.  The Nissan dealer should have provided you with your policy documents for breakdown cover along with the breakdown telephone numbers.
 
If you do find yourself in a breakdown situation, please quote your vehicle registration number and we will send a patrol out to you as soon as possible.

Thanks for the responses on here guys, much appreciated.

All Nissan dealers provide 12 months Breakdown cover (via RAC) at each annual service; helps offset the high service cost!
