No pensioner or other concessions are applicable to subscription fees. Please note: additional charges and entitlement restrictions may apply if you need Road Service within 48 hours of joining.
Road Service Fees are non-refundable. Pro-rata refunds are not available.
Road Service cover cannot be put on hold or suspended for future use.
Refusal of service
Any person engaging in abusive conduct or acting fraudulently may have their Road Service benefits & RAA Membership suspended or may be refused service pending further investigation.
Fair Use Policy
RAA Road Service is a vehicle breakdown service aimed at providing you with assistance in the event of an unexpected mechanical or electrical fault/failure of a vehicle and/or towed unit. It is intended to minimise the inconvenience of a vehicle breakdown through attendance, professional diagnosis and temporary repair wherever possible.
The service is not an alternative to regular routine maintenance of a vehicle and all members are required to maintain their vehicle in good working order and roadworthy condition.
RAA reserves the right to limit or refuse to provide services or entitlements to any product holder where, in the opinion of RAA, the product holder’s use of service or entitlement is excessive, unreasonable or not reasonably required by the product holder in the circumstances.
The Terms and Conditions of RAA Plus and Premium Road Service provide unlimited Road Service call-outs, however this is qualified by reference to a limitation where service may be refused if service has been provided “on an excessive number of occasions in relation to a single recurring vehicle fault” the product holder has failed to rectify.
Without limiting the circumstances in which RAA may apply this policy, RAA will apply this policy if any use of services or entitlements by any product holder is considered by RAA to be fraudulent or adversely affecting the provision of services or entitlements to other product holders.
