Different types of Car Insurance explained
Comprehensive Car Insurance is the jack-of-all-trades of car insurance that provides cover for a range of incidents – whether they’re your fault or not. Third Party Property Damage is a cheaper level of insurance that covers you for the damage your car causes to another person’s car or property, but doesn’t cover damage to your car. You can also upgrade to add cover for Fire and Theft to your Third Party Property Damage cover.

Custom paint, Nitro or hydrogen fuel, a petrol turbo or supercharger, or a roll bar, roll cage or racing harness are not covered by your Comprehensive Car Insurance policy.
Any person that you know will drive your car repeatedly should be listed as a driver on your policy.
The exception to this are learner drivers who do not need to be listed on the policy until they get their licence. They will still be covered while driving the car while on their learners and the relevant parts of the PDS will apply to any claim. An excess of $400 will apply (in addition to any other excess) if the learner is driving at the time of an incident.
It is always better to list any person on your policy who will drive your car, as if you don’t it may result in additional excesses, a reduction or refusal of a claim.
Please note: Learner drivers are not covered to drive a Hire Car obtained under your insurance policy. We also do not cover any driver under the age of 25 while driving a High-Performance vehicle.
Please refer to the PDS for more information.
