The RACQ Term Deposit offers a fixed rate of interest and terms ranging from one month to five years. The fixed rate of interest makes it easy to calculate your interest payments, making this a safe and reliable way to invest your savings for a length of time that suits you.
To be eligible to open a RACQ Term deposit account you must have a Queensland residential address.
With terms from one month to five years, this term deposit is super flexible and fits in with your personal savings strategy. Remember, you can’t access your deposit until the term has ended, so make sure you choose a term length with this in mind.
