What is car insurance?

Comprehensive car insurance can provide peace of mind, helping cover the cost of damage that may happen to your car due to theft or collision. Depending on your policy, car insurance can cover all or part of the cost of repairs or replacement, as well as the cost of damages to a third party’s car or property.

What does car insurance cover?

Third party property helps cover damage to other people’s car or property. Third party fire & theft provides additional cover to help cover your car if it’s damaged by fire or stolen. Comprehensive cover provides third party cover, as well as helping cover your vehicle if it’s damaged in an accident.

What types of car insurance are available in Australia?


This provides an extensive level of coverage. It can help cover the cost of repairs to your vehicle in the event of accidental or malicious damage, theft, fire, hail, and third party damage (regardless of fault).

Third Party Property

This typically covers you for damage you cause to other people’s property, such as their car or property in a car accident. Unlike comprehensive, it typically doesn’t cover damage to your car.

Third Party Fire & Theft

This typically covers damage to other people’s property and can provide limited cover for damage to your car as a result of theft or fire. It typically does not cover you for other damage caused to your car.

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) or Greenslip

As its name suggests, CTP is a minimum compulsory insurance required to drive on Aussie roads. Depending on which state you live in, it could be included in the cost of your vehicle registration, or you may have to purchase it separately from an insurer. CTP helps cover the cost of compensation claims if you injure or kill someone in a car accident.

Learn more about the optional extras offered by some of our providers

Freedom to nominate your choice of repairer

Got a preferred car repairer you’ve always worked with? This optional extra gives you the ability to nominate your preferred repairer. By not selecting this option, the repairer could be solely at your insurer’s discretion.

Hire car services if your car is written off

If your car is essential for your work commute or general lifestyle, this optional extra may be of benefit to you. With this extra, your insurer may provide you with a replacement hire car for a set period of time, if your car is written off. This may come with an additional fee.

Reduce your window glass excess

You could be driving along the highway, and a vehicle on the road ahead flicks up a stone that cracks or chips your windscreen. Typically, an insurer will charge you an excess to repair this damage, which could total hundreds of dollars. With this optional extra, you can choose to pay more on your policy premiums, and reduce the amount of excess you’d have to pay in the event that your windscreen needs repair or replacement.

Roadside assistance

With roadside assistance you’ll never have to fear being stranded if your car breaks down. Optional roadside assistance bundled with comprehensive cover from iSelect’s car insurance providers could include: battery assistance, tyre changes, towing, key rescue, emergency fuel, and more, depending on the provider and policy.
