With Spring upon us, most of us like to clean up, finish odd jobs and do some renovating around our homes.  There is a kind of joy that comes with achieving these goals, it’s the kind of joy that makes us feel proud of our homes and what we’ve worked hard for.  That joy also comes with designing and building a new home.  The excitement that comes with finally getting the keys to your own place is up there with life’s most exciting times.

Our homes are one of our biggest assets so it makes sense in understanding the importance of protecting it.  Even if you rent or invest in property,  RACV is the place to go for information, quality services and products for your home.


Most of like to get away for school holidays or over the Christmas break.  The Summer holidays offer the opportunity to wind down and relax for a few weeks and to recharge our batteries.  Just like we protect ourselves with sunscreen it’s important to protect our homes.   Did you know that RACV offer a wide range of ways to secure our homes? Home security can protect what you care about most and using a brand you can trust is peace of mind.

You can also save on your home insurance if you have an alarm system and RACV offer high quality CCTV systems, to smart alarm systems, that have security monitoring and patrols.  At least when you go away, you have peace of mind knowing you have a security system providing protection over your home.  Best of all RACV can tailor a solution to anyones needs.


Most of you would be aware that RACV also offer Home Insurance.  Knowing that a trusted brand is looking after members’ interest is peace of mind when you take out one of their policies.  Cover your buildings and permanently attached fixtures with Home Insurance. Contents insurance covers your belongings such as furniture clothes and even kitchen appliances. You can also combine the both to cover both your home and contents and you get 10% off.

RACV are running a comp asking people to share their home improvement, renovation or DIY jobs through a photo or video on Instagram, using the hashtag #homehero and tagging @theRACV for your chance to win a $2000 RACV Resorts Gift Card.
