Norwich Union has made a £1.1 billion bid to buy the RAC. If it’s accepted, you’ll be able to learn to drive, buy, finance and insure your car, and cover it against the possibility of breakdown, all through the same company – and it could cost you less. Already the UK’s biggest insurer, Norwich Union covers one in seven vehicles on UK roads. Access to the RAC’s 7.7 million customers would add up to economies of scale worth £80 million, opening the door to cheaper premiums and attractive all-in-one deals for both Norwich Union and RAC customers.
