The Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club (RREC) caters for anyone with an interest in the motor car products of Rolls-Royce, including Bentley cars built from 1933 onwards.  From just eleven people at the inaugural meeting in 1957, membership now stands at approaching 10,000 and the Club celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in style in 2007.  Membership is open to owners and non-owners alike and members are drawn from all walks of life and from most countries of the world. 

With a justifiable reputation for friendliness and informality, membership of the RREC enables like-minded enthusiasts to meet and share experiences, advice and the enjoyment of some of the finest vehicles in the world. To this end, there are forty regional Sections, UK and Overseas, and ten Registers, catering for specific groups of models from Silver Ghost to Silver Shadow

Each member receives a fully illustrated bi-monthly ‘Bulletin’ magazine covering historical and technical articles, as well as all aspects of the Club’s activities, together with the monthly ‘Advertiser’ which offers a fine cross-section of cars for sale.  There is also a wealth of informative material to be found on the “members only” area of this website, which incorporates a members’ discussion forum.

The Club enjoys a formal license from Rolls-Royce plc and also benefits from recognition by, and a close working relationship with, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited and Bentley Motors Limited.

Throughout the year all over the world numerous tours, rallies, weekend and social events are enjoyed by RREC members.  These may be organised by the Sections or the Registers, or be national events organised centrally.

For many members, the highlight of the year is the Annual Rally and Concours.  This is the largest Rolls-Royce and Bentley gathering anywhere in the world and makes a spectacular sight. The whole event spans a weekend, with trade and other stands, an auction of cars and automobilia, as well as class judging and a parade of prize winning cars.

For the first time in 2007, the Club staged an extremely successful stand at the NEC Classic Car Show in Birmingham, winning the Best Stand in Show award for a Club with more than 5,000 members.

The Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club provides access to a special insurance scheme. This provides competitively priced cover which is tailored to the needs of the Club’s Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners who are resident in the United Kingdom.

Some of the key benefits are:

  • Discounted rates for members of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club
  • No broker administration fees (other insurers may charge up to £35 for each policy amendment or renewal)
  • Choose a vehicle repairer you trust (giving you peace of mind as to where, and by whom, your vehicle is repaired)
  • Foreign travel cover within the European Union, or it’s associate members, for up to 90 days in any one trip
  • Cover included for Club rallies and events
  • UK & European accident & breakdown recovery, including home service
  • Agreed value, ensuring that the value agreed becomes the guaranteed settlement figure in the event of the vehicle being lost, or written-off (members can obtain insurance valuations through the Club, from the nominated Valuation Officer).  Agreed valuations are also available for your modern Bentley and Rolls-Royce (under 11 years of age)
  • Free and automatic salvage retention if your vehicle is over 20 years of age (this means you will retain the salvage, where possible, in addition to your agreed value settlement figure should your vehicle be written-off.  Other insurers may only offer you the right to ‘buy back’ your salvage, which has an adverse effect on the total settlement)
  • No upper age limit for drivers
  • Automatic cover for dismantled parts of the insured vehicle whilst they are kept in locked, secure premises (up to the value of the insured vehicle)
  • Collector and multi-vehicle policies are available (allowing you to combine your other specialist or modern vehicles on to one policy)
