What is the instalment payment plan?
This year we will introduce an instalment payment plan for your membership subscription renewal. This will enable you to pay your subscription in three equal payments throughout the season. We’ve also enabled the process to be managed via automatic payment so once you set up the terms and make your first payment, the rest will happen automatically in October 2020 and February 2021.
How does the instalment payment plan work?
Your annual membership subscription fee is divided into three equal amounts to create the three instalments required for your membership subscription renewal.
- The first instalment is due by Tuesday 1st September 2020
- The second payment will be automatically processed on 1st October 2020
- The third payment will be automatically processed on 1st February 2021
To pay your membership subscription via our instalment payment plan simply log into your membership online account or call Customer Service on 1300 727 575.
Can I pay my optional annual passes by instalment payment plan?
Instalment payment plan is not available on optional annual passes such as annual guest cards and annual car passes. Payment of these passes can be made by one of the following methods:
- Log in to your membership online account at vrc.net.au and follow the prompts
- Contact VRC Customer Service on 1300 727 575
What if I have an annual reserved car site?
For any member who has an existing annual reserved car site, we will hold this site for you until there is more clarity for the upcoming season. You are not required to renew this site at this time.
