Comprehensive Insurance protects the investment you’ve made in your car and helps you avoid big bills if you have an accident.
Take care of your car
Feel confident your car’s covered if it’s stolen, in an accident, or damaged by a storm, vandalism or fire.
$30 million liability cover
You’re covered up to $30 million if you damage other people’s cars or property in an accident.
Hire car if yours is stolen
If your car’s stolen or can’t be driven after attempted theft, we pay for car hire up to $100 a day. You’re covered for 21 days, until your car’s back on the road, or until your claim’s settled (whichever’s first).
If your personal items are damaged in an accident or stolen from your locked car, we cover them up to $1,000 (we don’t cover things like money, cheques or property used for earning an income).
If your car’s damaged in an accident (or another incident we cover) and can’t be driven, we’ll tow it somewhere safe or to the nearest repairer.

How to claim

Step 2. We’ll assign one of our consultants to your claim and give you a claim reference number.
Is a learner driver covered on my car insurance?
Yes, learners are covered.
If you have a Nominated Driver policy, learners are only covered if the fully licensed driver accompanying them is over 25. See the PDS for more details.
How much does Comprehensive cost?
The cost depends on a number of things, including where you live, your car’s make and model, and whether you’ve had an accident before.
There are some ways to lower the cost, like if you name the drivers on your policy or if you choose a policy that has a limit on how far you drive each year.
The fastest way to see how much your insurance costs and look at your options is to get a quote.
Is my car covered when someone else drives it?
If you have a standard policy, your car’s covered no matter who’s behind the wheel (with a few exceptions).
If you have a Nominated Driver policy, drivers under 25 aren’t covered (except learners accompanied by a fully licensed driver over the age of 25). Also, if someone’s driving and they’re not listed on your Nominated Driver policy, you’ll pay a higher excess if you make a claim.
Make sure you’ve read the PDS before you let someone else drive your car.
