How does direct debit work?
When you use direct debit, your RACQ Roadside Assistance or RACQ Lifestyle policy will be automatically renewed annually when the renewal fee is deducted from your nominated credit card or bank account on your renewal date, or the first business day thereafter if the debit day is not a banking day.
You will be sent your renewal notice approximately 4-6 weeks before your renewal date. This notice will remind you that you’ve set up a direct debit and that no further action is required from you. We do recommend that you check your nominated account details are current and that there are sufficient funds in your account before a payment is due.
