Frequently asked questions

What will be open when I visit?

When you visit our properties, not all facilities will be open or open in the same way. We appreciate your understanding as we begin to reopen within the new COVID-Safe environment. Please keep up to date via this page, our bookings page or contact us directly.

What will happen to my RACV Club membership?

Following Victorian Government advice and direction, Club Memberships were automatically suspended on Monday, 23 March 2020 when Club locations first closed due to COVID-19. This suspension was lifted on Friday, 23 October 2020.

Your current annual membership has been extended by 7 months to cover this period of Club closure.

My RACV Club membership was due for renewal. Will my membership be extended?

If you have already renewed your membership:

Your membership will be extended by 7 months.

For example, if you paid your renewal in February 2020, your next renewal statement will be sent in September 2021, and each year thereafter, your renewal will be sent in September.

If you have not yet renewed your membership:

You’re required to make a payment by 30 November 2020 or your membership may be cancelled. If you pay by 30 November 2020, your Club membership will be extended by 7 months from your original renewal date.

For example, if you received a renewal statement in June 2020 and did not pay at that time, once you pay your renewal you’ll receive your next renewal in January 2022 (1.e. 7 + 12 months’ time). Your annual Club membership renewal will then be sent in January each year going forward.

We appreciate the support of all Members who have renewed their Club memberships during this time.
