This usually depends on the time it takes the police to recover the car, as well as the waiting period as defined by your insurer.
If your car isn’t recovered, then it may take a little longer. It could depend on several factors such as the complexity of the claim, how much damage there is to your car, and how responsive your provider is.
You may also need to provide additional documentation such as police reports or photos of any damage to the car after the incident. Once this process is complete, your provider will assess your claim and determine its validity. Your provider will then typically pay you for the losses that are covered within your policy, minus any deductibles you may have.
This whole process can take days or weeks depending on the provider. Make sure you communicate with your provider as accurately as possible to help finalise the process.
You can also check your policy’s Product Disclosure Statement to see if there is any information about waiting periods for cover in the event of a stolen car.
