Frequently asked questions about RACV car insurance

What policies are available?

You can choose between two car insurance policies at RACV, the Comprehensive cover option, or the Complete Care option.

Usually, Comprehensive policies are the ones that offers the most benefits and coverage for your wheels, but in this case, while Comprehensive cover will tick most boxes, Complete Care ticks even more. You can check out what each one covers below.

One thing to keep in mind though, is that because it offers more coverage, the Complete Care policy will likely be more expensive.

What excess option should I go for?

Excess is the amount you’ll need to pay before your insurance kicks in if you have an accident. With either RACV policy in our table you can choose your level of excess, from high, to none at all.

Remember to consider your ideal excess carefully - if you pay more excess, you’ll pay less for your upfront premium, while if you pay low excess, your premium will be higher. Think about what will suit your budget better.

What is covered by my policy?

It depends on your policy. First things first, let’s list off some of the main things that are covered by both Comprehensive and Complete Care policies:
