The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland
The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland is a club that offers services like roadside assistance, travel, finance and insurance to its members. Club formed in the year 1905 and during those hundred and more years of service, they have been taking care of Australian petrolheads in many areas. What can you expect from them if you are a member? Well, let’s see…
If you or any of your immediate relative become ill or find themselves in need of assistance during travels further than 100km from home, they will provide necessary help. When an emergency happens, you can call their call centre 24/7 and they will assist you in any way necessary. Imagine a sad situation when you are travelling and become sick and continuing driving is not an option and you’re too far from home for your friends and family to come and fetch you. In this case, RACQ will provide an accommodation for you; travel back home and they will return your vehicle to you. But not every emergency is connected with our health. Some of them are connected with the „health” of our car. So if your car breaks down in the middle of the road, the club will try to find spare parts for you. Or you can just call them with any travel-related question you might have - a directions to the nearest hospital, advice on what to do after a car crash etc. So what do you get? A peace of mind, so there’s nothing that will stand in the way between you and the road.
