The future has arrived - and it’s exciting!

You’ll love EV ownership - instant torque and performance, no gears to worry about and of course silence. Because the technology is new, we’ve partnered with the RAC to offer the UK’s most exciting used EV car warranty - and there are serious benefits too!

And our used EV warranty is designed for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids with specialist cover alongside all the other benefits a used RAC warranty provides as standard.

So what’s included? Lots actually - and if you’re shopping for an EV or PHEV you’ll be glad of the cover too!

So then, what’s actually covered?

Adventures away, commuting, or nipping to the shops. We all value having a reliable, well maintained vehicle for every journey. That’s why an RAC warranty from FOW is a great option to complement your lifestyle. Choosing FOW gives you some great perks as well!

What’s covered? That’s easy - all mechanical and electrical parts are included (exclusions apply), diagnostics (up to £50 inc VAT on valid claims) with wear and tear cover for vehicles under 8 years old and 80,000 miles. You’ll also be able to claim up to the purchase price of the car.

And if your car has a turbo, this is covered alongside factory fitted multimedia systems (up to £500 inc VAT), keys, key cards and fobs (up to £100 inc VAT), timing belts, engine casings, cylinder block, differential, gearbox, transfer box and diagnostics.

Don’t forget, with FOW and the RAC you’re covered up to the purchase price of the car - labour is also covered on valid claims up to £45 an hour (£65 within the M25 circle). Holidaying in Europe? no problem - you’re covered up to 60 days each year alongside our UK cover (Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man).

Is the repair significant? Don’t worry, if the recommended repair time is over 8 hours you can claim up to £50 a day inc VAT towards a hire vehicle for 7 days. There’s also an option to transfer cover if you sell the car (fees and terms apply).


And the (not so small) small print

Naturally, exclusions do apply - we won’t cover bodywork, handles and hinges, interior and exterior trim including brightwork, paint and glass (includes heated screen elements). Weatherstrips, rubber seals, sheet metal, sunroof guides and seats (including electrical and mechanical adjustment).

Of course, carpets aren’t covered, alongside seat belts and pretensioners, wiper arms, blades and washer jets, wheels and tyres (includes alignment, tracking and balancing), brake discs, pads, linings and shoes, contaminated fuel, convertible roof mechanisms, electrical leads, all filters and serviceable items.

Clutch failure is covered for vehicles under 8 years old and 80,000 miles (only through normal use and not when the clutch is burnt out) and only components forming part of the original manufacturers specification will be covered.

And the following electrics are excluded - bulbs, lamps and lenses, batteries, fuses, wiring harnesses and terminals alongside air conditioning recharging, ECU reflashes, exhaust system, auxiliary drive belts, brackets, mountings, tapping’s, supports, fixings, fastening devices, fuel tank and fuel lines, air bags and pipes (metal and plastic).

Don’t worry - at FOW, our award winning team will prepare your new car to the highest standard - our check list will make new car day more magical than ever before!


Sounds great, what do I need to know?

I know what you’re thinking… there are a lot of hoops to jump through? Well actually, with FOW there isn’t!

Yes, you’ll need to get your new car serviced to the manufacturer schedule (this applies to every extended warranty), but if your claim is valid, costs will be covered directly with the repairer - remember you can claim online or by calling 0330 100 3728. You’ll need a repair request authority number before any claim can be processed.

Because you’re protected up to the price you paid for the car - you’re covered for the duration. It’s worth bearing in mind that each included component is covered once for the duration of the agreement. Naturally you won’t be covered if the car is used for hire or reward, rallied, track days or competition use.

Don’t forget - labour costs are covered up to £45 an hour (£65 within the M25 circle). If you notice a problem whilst driving, pull over when it’s safe to do so and call RAC Rescue on 0330 1598 492 quoting the Scheme Code in your documentation - don’t continue driving as any further damage won’t be covered.

Buying a newer car you want to keep beyond the manufactures warranty? No problem! We’ll schedule the agreement to start the day after the existing policy ends, that way you stay protected for longer.

FREE RAC breakdown cover

Choose an RAC extended warranty from FOW and we'll include FREE RAC breakdown cover as standard - roadside, recovery, at home and onward travel are all covered so you can continue your journey. And with 60 days continental cover you too can make adventure possible!

Anything else I should know?

Wear and tear cover is standard for all vehicles under 8 years old and 80,000 miles - the plan won’t cover consumables, or anything that’s expected to wear through normal driving such as brake pads, discs, tyres and wiper blades. Full terms and conditions are available upon request.

But, and here’s the good bit - wear and tear cover with FOW and the RAC will cover components not usually covered. This includes items such as the clutch - if this fails through normal use within the 8 year, 80,000 mile window you’re protected.

And, you’ll benefit from hire car cover too! This applies if the recommended repair time exceeds 8 hours. You can claim up to £50 a day (inc VAT) for a period of up to 7 days. Don’t forget diagnostic charges for all valid claims are covered up to £50 an hour (inc VAT).

Of course, you’ll need to service your new car according to the manufacturers schedule - don’t worry, you don’t need to take the car back to the main dealer, if you have a local, VAT registered garage you trust you can still take it there. You’ll also find authorised repairers local to you here.
