Things to consider
Your credit history
If you have ever applied for a credit card, mortgage or personal loan, or any other type of credit, a personal credit file has been created containing your credit history. This record can be accessed by financial institutions and can determine your ability to get credit in the future.
To maintain a healthy credit rating, it is important to answer all questions accurately on your credit application forms, pay your bills on time and contact your creditor immediately if you get into repayment difficulties. If you do find yourself in financial trouble, it might be worth consolidating your debts into a personal loan, where the interest rate would be lower than credit card and store card rates.

Consolidate your loans
RACQ can help you reduce your personal debt or refinance an existing loan through a RACQ personal loan. Consolidating your existing loans into one loan can make your loan repayments more manageable with only one monthly repayment.
- RACQ consolidation loan rates are competitive, fees are low and our service assures you minimum hassle
- Fast loan approval
- Once the consolidation of your existing loans is approved we will send your documents to you via email or mail for you to sign and return to us. Once your loan and supporting documents are returned, we can settle your loan, it's that easy.
Calculate your repayments
Before you apply for your personal loan, you’ll need to figure out how much you can afford to borrow and whether you would like to make fortnightly or monthly repayments.
Our loan calculator can help you figure out how much you will need to put aside each fortnight or month for your loan repayments. It also gives you an indication of how you can save and decrease your loan term by halving your monthly repayments and paying fortnightly instead.
Ready to apply?*
You can apply for your personal loan with our online loan application form. It should only take around 10 minutes to complete and includes questions that allow us to identify who you are, and understand your employment and financial situation. Once your personal loan is approved we will contact you to finalise your finance and work with you to find the easiest way for you to sign your documents.
If you would prefer to speak with one of our finance consultants, you can contact the RACQ finance team to discuss or email a question.

You may also get asked for proof of housing (ownership or rental), employment history, references and credit history.
