Here’s what you need to know about comprehensive car insurance in QLD so you can hit the road with confidence.
WHAT CAR INSURANCE IS COMPULSORY IN QUEENSLAND
In Queensland, as well as in all states and territories of Australia, compulsory third-party (CTP) insurance is mandatory for all registered vehicles. Essentially, in the event of an accident, it covers personal injury caused by your vehicle to other people.
While comprehensive car insurance itself is not mandatory, it can provide valuable coverage in addition to CTP insurance. It helps protect your vehicle against the real nasty stuff, like damage, theft and other unforeseen events, helping to give you peace of mind. We all love that peace of mind.
WHAT IS COMPREHENSIVE CAR INSURANCE?
While third-party (CTP) insurance is mandatory for all vehicles on Australian roads, comprehensive car insurance can help to provide broader coverage. Comprehensive car insurance can cover damage to your vehicle from accidents, theft, vandalism, natural disasters and, depending on your insurer, a variety of other unforeseen events.
A comprehensive car insurance policy may also include additional benefits like towing, rental-car reimbursement and personal belongings (typically subject to policy limits). While not mandatory, comprehensive car insurance can help give you financial protection and peace of mind whenever you hit the road.
REASONS TO CHOOSE COMPREHENSIVE CAR INSURANCE WITH ROLLIN'
Comprehensive car insurance provides more coverage compared to other types of policy, such as third party. If you are weighing up compulsory vs third-party insurance, know that the former offers cover for damage to your own vehicle in addition to liability for damages to other vehicles or property.
COMPREHENSIVE CAR INSURANCE COVER IN QUEENSLAND
While not mandatory in Queensland, having comprehensive car insurance is a popular choice for drivers, particualrly in busy cities like Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The bustling metropolises are densely populated, and that means there’s going to be more traffic on roads. This likely means a higher risk of accidents, and there may also be increased incidents of theft and vandalism.
Comprehensive car insurance helps provide protection against these pesky risks, by offering cover for damage to not just your own vehicle but for damage to other cars and property after an incident.
It can help put your mind at ease when behind the wheel in densely populated areas, whether you’re commuting in the busy streets of Brisbane or taking in the sights of the always-vibrant Goldie.
