A brief history

The Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania was established in 1923 and has been enhancing the lives of Tasmanians ever since.

We help Tasmanians when their car won’t start, keep vehicles safe with a range of automotive services, teach the next generation of motorists how to drive and offer insurance for peace of mind. We are proud of our unique and world-class travel products, with accommodation and experiences on offer at Freycinet Lodge, Cradle Mountain Hotel, Strahan Village, Gordon River Cruises and RACT/RACV Hobart Apartment Hotel. 

​​Most importantly, we make engaging with the community, representing the interests of Tasmanians and offering our 190,000 RACT members exclusive benefits our priority. With retail and travel branches conveniently located in Hobart, Rosny, Glenorchy, Kingston, Launceston, Devonport, Burnie and Ulverstone, the local and dedicated RACT team is always happy to help.
