Yes, RACQ allows unlimited extra repayments on their variable-rate home loans and additional repayments of up to $10,000 annually on their fixed-rate home loans. Terms and conditions apply; contact your lender for details.
RACQ also offers you the option of making weekly or fortnightly payments on your home loan. As with most banks, interest is calculated daily on your remaining principal; this means that any payment you make before your monthly due date will reduce your principal, and thus reduce the amount of interest you have to pay.

Yes, RACQ offers free unlimited redraw services on all of its variable rate home loans. Contact your lender for details or learn more about redraw facilities here.
