RAC clamps down on brand misuse

The RAC has been alerted to consistent misuse of its brand by used car dealers, and plans to implement new rules in response.
RAC clamps down on brand misuse

A “number of dealers” are said to be incorrectly or falsely using the name of breakdown cover provider RAC, but new measures should enforce a change.  Those ignoring the change in rules will face action.

RAC’s head of dealer propositions, Mario Dolcezza, said: “We are concerned there may be some dealers out there using the RAC name and brand without permission.

“Dealers who sell RAC-branded products such as warranties are allowed to use our brand but some are exceeding the rules that are in place as part of our commercial agreement with them.

“The RAC brand is rightly valued by customers as one of the most trustworthy in the UK and allowing its use in an uncontrolled manner where our brand equity is endangered makes no sense for consumers, properly authorised dealers or the RAC itself.

“Last month we unveiled details of a new used car initiative called BuySure that includes new and definitive rules about using the brand. These rules are now being issued to all of our dealers. We advise any dealer who is unsure of their position to contact us for guidance.”
