Why you need car insurance

Being protected will give you peace of mind.

Driving a vehicle can be risky. No matter how careful you are, mistakes can happen, and often an accident is caused by another driver.

That's why it's essential you have car insurance, which provides financial protection in the event of an accident.

If you cause an accident, you will be responsible for any damage caused, including repair costs and medical expenses.

Without car insurance, you will have to pay out of your own pocket. Hospital and mechanic bills can be quite expensive, so it pays to have the right level of car insurance.

Basic car insurance provides cover for damage caused to third parties, while comprehensive car insurance covers damage caused by accidents and mother nature (for example through hailstorms), theft and fire.

Getting the right level of car insurance is an important decision. It can be quite a relief to know you are fully covered in the event of an accident, whether caused by yourself or someone else - saving you a lot of money and unnecessary stress.

Take the time to go through the various car insurance policies available before deciding on the cover that's right for you.

Compare the car insurance policies offered by Australia Post to ensure you buy the best policy for your needs, and enjoy peace of mind the next time you're behind the wheel.
