c. If you cease to hold a relevant RAA product that qualifies you to remain a member of RAA pursuant to the Constitution of RAA or the regulations made under that Constitution, you will at that time, unless the Chief Executive (in their absolute discretion) determines otherwise, immediately cease to be a member of RAA and cease to be entitled to any rights and privileges associated with that membership.

The following terms and conditions provide further guidance regarding the provision of RAA Membership and application of member benefits.

Continuous years of membership

  • Maintaining continuity of your membership brings with it additional benefit entitlements. To access these additional benefits, a Qualifying Annuity Product must be held.
  • RAA will also recognise and/or credit additional membership years (for the purpose of determining continuous years of membership) where a person transfers a current membership of an affiliated motoring organisation to RAA.
Termination of membership
A member who abuses, offends or puts at risk any member of RAA's staff or any contractor in the carrying out of their usual duties may be charged with conduct detrimental to RAA. In such cases the Chief Executive has the power to expel the person from membership of RAA. Upon expulsion from RAA, the member forfeits all rights and claims on RAA.
 

Membership verification/validation
  • All members of RAA are issued with a personal, unique membership number, and official membership identification, in the form of a membership card.
  • Membership cards remain the property of RAA and are not transferable.
  • Membership cards are not valid until signed by you. The membership card is not a credit card and does not provide any explicit benefits in its own right, but rather is purely for identification purposes.

In circumstances where you are unable to produce your membership identification, you may be required to provide alternative forms of identification or certify your entitlement to service in writing.
