Welcome to RateCity's Car Insurance section.
Comprehensive car insurance is an important part of buying a car and feeling safe on the roads for many Australian drivers. That’s because you have the added comfort of knowing you are covered for any unforeseen accident that may occur, not only to your vehicle but to any other vehicles or property you come into contact.
Comprehensive car insurance is the highest level of insurance you can take out for your vehicle and covers you for damage you do to your car if you are at fault in a car accident. It can also cover you for things like theft and damage to the vehicle and theft of personal property inside the car.
Policies for comprehensive car insurance vary between the levels of cover you choose by the insurer and also between insurance providers. So make sure you check out the fine print and know exactly what you are covered for – and what you’re not covered for – as well as how much your excess will cost, before deciding on the right policy for you.
