The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) was originally founded over 100 years ago in 1904. In the early years, it was responsible for influencing legislation for speed limits and safety and helping the motor vehicle become an accepted part of day-to-day life in Queensland.

Nowadays, RACQ is known as ‘Queensland’s Largest Club’ and offers a number of other insurance products such as car, life and travel insurance. It has a vast rewards program for its members, which consists of anything from discounted movie tickets to hotel and flight deals.

It is completely member-owned and run, which means all profits go back into members’ pockets. RACQ is also proud to be a diverse and inclusive organisation that values the importance of diversity free from discrimination on the basis of gender, background, disability, sexual orientation or life stage.

The table below displays a snapshot of comprehensive car insurance policies on our database that at the time of writing offer a no claim bonus that isn’t always impacted by hail and flood damage or theft claims. Please note the results are based on a 30-39 year old male who lives in New South Wales and does not require an extra driver under 25 (with link to provider’s website, ordered by Star Rating), so some products may not be available to you. Remember to read the PDS carefully to understand each insurer’s policy on their no claims bonus.
