RACQ's centenary in 2005 sparked year-long celebrations, including a state-wide travelling exhibition honouring 100 years of motoring in Queensland, a television documentary and a hardcover historical reference titled A Road Well Travelled RACQ's First 100 Years.
In 2006, RACQ’s advocacy resulted in the launch of the Learn2go program. This online education resource for learner drivers and supervisors was introduced alongside legislative changes.
RACQ also launched the Streets Ahead school program aimed to develop the road awareness of primary school children. The program has reached more than 50,000 students and won a Queensland road safety award in its first year. In 2015, RACQ launched RACQ Home Assistance and began offering pet insurance to its members.
In 2017, RACQ successfully merged with QT Mutual Bank and RACQ Bank was born. RACQ now offers its members a range of banking products, including home loans, personal loans, term deposits, transaction accounts and savings accounts
RACQ exists to make a positive difference to the lives of our members now and into the future.
We have served Queenslanders for more than 117 years. And are proud to be Queensland’s largest club, owned by you, our members.
As the world is living through a global pandemic, RACQ has adapted. We have strengthened our support for the community and evolved our strategy to meet your expectations not only now, but into the future.
Everything we do aims to benefit our members and our community. It is our shared world. We advocate for our member’s rights, safer roads, and stronger communities.
We are on the ground with our retail stores, Queensland based call centres and with State’s largest roadside assistance network of over 600 vehicles stretching from Cape York to the New South Wales border.
We’re supporting our members to get ahead by making everyday banking more affordable. Launched in 2017, RACQ Bank helps members do more with their money from everyday banking options, loans for that new car, home or something special while helping Queenslanders improve their financial wellbeing.
Since 1971, our Insurance business has been helping Queenslanders protect the things that mean the most including their homes and motor vehicles and also help to protect their families and pets. And whatever Queensland weather comes our way, our team stands ready to be there in the moments that matter.
We also support the wider community through activities such as the RACQ Foundation, RACQ Choppers and Rescue Network and providing grassroots support through our local sponsorship and our school education programs.
Alongside our over 1.7 million members, we’re looking to the future, focused more than ever before on honouring our values of service and our underpinning purpose of making a positive difference in your lives.
Sustainability will be key for our members in every facet of their lives in the decades to come. Helping our communities become more resilient and supporting our members through this transition is core to our 2030 strategic vision.
Membership really does make all the difference.
