Renewing Your Annual Membership

Your membership of the Club runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.

Your invitation to renew your membership will be sent to you by email each year in early December. Paper invitations are only sent to members who we do not hold an email address for.

Once you have received your invitation to renew and checked the attached pro forma invoice, you need do nothing further if you are satisfied with the invoice and have a Direct Debit mandate set up: your membership fee will be collected by Direct Debit on or around 4 January. Other methods of payment are available if required.

To ensure your renewal is not delayed, please go to the My Account area of the Club website, no later than 21 December each year, and check that:

  • your email address shown on the Profile and Contact page is the one you would like us to use for your renewal information
  • your bank details and Direct Debit preferences in Payment Methods are up to date.

Your membership fee will then be collected by Direct Debit on or around 4 January. Other methods of payment are available if required.

If any of your personal details change throughout the year, please remember to notify the Membership Team as soon as possible, either by updating the information in My Account or by contacting the Membership Team at members@royalautomobileclub.co.uk or on 01372 229600.

If you have any questions regarding the renewal of your membership, the Membership Team will be happy to assist you.
