About RACQ

RACQ was formed more than 100 years ago, in 1905, as a Queensland-based club for motorists. It was originally called the Automobile Club of Queensland and designed to advocate the rights of drivers. As it evolved, it began to offer a range of products to members including car loans and personal loans.

Features of a RACQ personal loan

RACQ offers fixed interest rate personal loans to its members and borrowers who wish to become members. Its loan terms range between one and seven years, while RACQ says it considers most personal loan amounts, provided the purpose is worthwhile – such as the purchase of a new or used car, caravan or motorcycle, a home renovation or debt consolidation.

Some of the main features of an RACQ personal loan include no account keeping fees, flexible repayment options – including the choice to make extra repayments and elect to make payments fortnightly or monthly – and discounts on various items, such as theme parks and movie tickets.

What RateCity says

RACQ personal loans may appeal to borrowers who are already members, or would like to become a member, of RACQ. The flexible loan amount and repayment options are an attractive feature, as is the lack of ongoing fees. However, the interest rates vary based on the borrower’s profile, so before committing to a RACQ loan, it’s worth speaking to the lender about whether you’re a candidate for a lower rate.
