RAC Warranty

When leasing or purchasing a vehicle through Hippo Prestige, you have either the remaining balance of the manufacturers warranty or you are enrolled into our 12-month RAC warranty programme. 

You will receive the Gold-level warranty completely free of charge, assuring you that should the unthinkable happen, you are protected. 

Why is a warranty important? 

As a vehicle gets older, the risk of unexpected repair grows. All our vehicles go through a stringent 148-point check before leaving our preparation facility, and we have the utmost confidence in our quality. However, for added peace of mind, we can also provide service and maintenance packages. 

Warranty explained

Nevertheless, it is impossible to predict the future, and therefore crucial to have a contingency in place should something happen. 

That is why we offer a completely free-of-charge 12-month RAC Gold warranty with every purchase, making sure both you and your vehicle are covered. 

What is included in our RAC Gold warranty?  

We provide two levels of RAC warranty; Gold and Platinum Plus. 

With Gold, as well as labour and VAT, the following is included: 

Vehicle Electrics, Drive System (Front and Rear), Front and Rear Suspension, Propshaft, Gearbox: Manual and Automatic, Continuous Variable Transmission (CTX/CTV), Clutch, Brakes, Fuel System, Electronic Control Uni (ECU), Timing Belts, Cooling System, Turbo, Engine, Air Conditioning, Steering

Additional RAC Gold warranty benefits

Aside from the details listed above, with a RAC Gold warranty, you are entitled to a hire vehicle should the repairs to your vehicle take longer than eight hours*. You can also call on the warranty within the European Economic Area for up to 60 days per 12 month period. 

RAC Platinum Plus warranty

As already mentioned, we also offer an RAC Platinum Plus warranty. 

In addition to the range of electrical and mechanical components covered by the Gold warranty, the Platinum Plus also protects you against In-Car Entertainment, Factory-Fitted Supercharger and Catalytic Converter issues.

The Platinum Plus programme also includes cover for carbon build-up and the failure of parts that have reached the end of their working life, including wear and tear, up to eight years/80,000 miles at the time of repair request. 

Alongside this, you can also claim up to £50 for a diagnostic check, which is again exclusive to the Platinum Plus package. 

How much does it cost to upgrade to Platinum Plus? 

Here at Hippo Prestige, we believe in offering you a prestige service at an affordable price. The same applies to our RAC Platinum Plus warranty. 

You can upgrade your warranty from Gold to Platinum Plus for as little £199. Speak to one of our Prestige team to find out more.
