We're here if you need us

For more than 117 years, our members have been at the heart of everything we do. We’ve celebrated great moments and weathered many storms. But we've always gotten through it, together. 

With the COVID-19 situation changing daily, we wanted to let you know what we're doing to look out for our members, our staff and the South Australian community.

We’re only a phone call away

If you are self-isolating or would prefer to contact us over the phone, please get in touch.

The health and wellbeing of all South Australians is – and always will be – a priority for us at RAA.

Across every area of our business

We’re basing our workforce across various SA sites so we can be sure we can continue to meet the motor, home and travel needs of our members well into the future.

We’re keeping RAA Shops open, but if you’ve recently returned from overseas, been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 or are displaying flu-like symptoms, we ask you to postpone your visit to our shop or face-to-face appointments with us.

We’re supporting our staff who can work from home to do exactly that, so we can continue to support our members from anywhere in the State.

If you have any questions, check out our frequently asked questions relevant to each area of our business.

  • General FAQs

    Has RAA closed any services due to COVID-19?

    No. We are closely monitoring alerts and advice from health and government authorities to ensure our response to COVID-19 aligns with recommendations from the experts. We take our role in looking out for the community seriously and are taking every precaution so that we can continue to deliver the services our members need in a safe and responsible way. 

    What precautionary measures is RAA taking to limit the spread of COVID-19?

    We are taking a practical, responsible approach to limiting the spread of COVID-19 across our workforce and the community. 

    While we’re keeping our shop network open to continue servicing our members in a responsible manner, we are asking people self-isolating to postpone their visit to our shops or in-person appointments.

    If you answer ‘yes’ to the following questions, we’ll postpone your appointment or ask you to return to our shop after 14 days: 

    • Have you recently returned from overseas or interstate?
    • Have you been in direct contact with anyone with coronavirus?
    • Are you experiencing flu-like symptoms?
    How can I get in touch with RAA remotely?

  • Motor FAQs

    Is RAA still doing roadside assistance?

    Absolutely, RAA is still here to keep you moving when you break down. We are taking extra precautions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, including adjusting our approach to help in high-risk situations and following the personal hygiene and social distancing practices recommended by the experts.

    What specific precautions are being taken in delivering Road Service?

    We are taking a practical, responsible approach to limiting the spread of COVID-19 across our workforce and the community. 
    As the health and safety of our employees, service providers, customers and broader community are our priority here at RAA, we are now asking callers to advise if they: 

    • Are displaying signs or symptoms of a cold or flu;
    • Have recently returned from overseas or interstate and are in self-isolation; or
    • Have been in close contact with someone with Coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Asking these questions helps us to adjust our approach to help in high-risk circumstances while protecting the health and wellbeing of our Patrols and the wider community.

    Our Patrols are also taking extra personal hygiene precautions and maintaining social distancing, so don’t be offended if you’re not greeted with our normal handshake at the moment.

    We are closely monitoring alerts and advice from health and government authorities to ensure our response to COVID-19 aligns with recommendations from the experts. We will be continually adjusting our response in line with those evolving recommendations.

    Why can’t I lodge a request for assistance using the RAA Road Service App?

    So that we can identify high-risk situations, we are only taking requests for roadside assistance over the phone, so please call us on 13 1111 if you’ve broken down and you need our help.

    We are currently making changes to our App to help us identify high-risk circumstances and will reactivate the App once these have been made and tested.

    Why won’t the towing company let me travel in the cab of the truck with my vehicle?

    We all have a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. We respect the right of our contractors to take appropriate precautions to protect their employees and the wider community. For some contractors, this has meant prohibiting passengers from riding in proximity of the driver of the tow truck.

    What do I do if I can’t travel in the tow truck?

    If you are unable to travel in the tow truck that is transporting your car, we will help you to arrange alternative transportation. 

    I’ve booked a Drive School appointment – is that service still running? 

    Following an announcement from the State Coordinator under the Emergency Management Act 2004, RAA suspended conducting driving lessons or tests from 10 April 2020.

    We are pleased to advise that Drive School will be reopening from Monday 1 June, in line with State Government advice on the COVID-19 roadmap to recovery. Please call us to make a Drive School booking on 8202 4444.

    Can I still proceed with my Keys2drive driving lesson?

    The Australian Government remains committed to funding the Keys2drive program for at least the next few years. However, like many organisations across the world facing the implications of the coronavirus, Keys2drive has had to suspend operations to comply with government requirements and to ensure the safety of our drivers, registered learners, and their parents. As such, as of Wednesday 1st April, we won’t be proceeding with driving lessons under the Keys2drive program. If you are a registered Keys2drive learner, you will be contacted with more information. 

    Can I still register for my free Keys2Drive lesson in the future?

    Learners can still register for their free Keys2drive lesson via the Keys2drive website, however, from Wednesday 1st April, Keys2drive is placing a hold on issuing Free Lesson IDs (FLIDs) until all COVID-19 related restrictions have been lifted. As soon as lessons can resume, registered learners will receive their FLID by text message to the mobile number they registered with and will be able to use this to proceed with their booking.

  • Travel FAQs

    How can I find out if my insurance covers the changes I need to make to my travel plans? 

    If you have an RAA Travel Insurance policy, we have set up a dedicated hotline for COVID-19 related queries. Call us on 02 8055 1610.

    Will I receive a full refund on my travel booking? 

    If you need to change an existing travel booking, reach out to our RAA travel team to reschedule or cancel. Only upon looking at the specifics of your booking will our travel team be able to advise you of any refund or reimbursement entitlements available to you. 

    My tour has been cancelled, when can I rebook? 

    As of 16 March 2020, almost all tour companies, cruise liners and suppliers suspended operations until at least 30 April 2020. We will advise if and when this suspension is lifted. 

    Is RAA charging for travel cancellations? 

    We’ve waived our travel cancellation fees until 30 June 2020. Fees and charges from travel suppliers may still apply, but we will work hard to reschedule or cancel your booking in the most cost-effective way possible.

    I’ve paid a deposit – will I get it back? 

    For bookings departing before 30 June 2020, we will happily turn your deposit into an RAA travel credit.
