Car Insurance claim process

It’s important to get you moving again and your life back to normal, quickly after an incident. That’s why our Claims Team is here for you to start a claim 24/7.

Every claim is different, just like you. These steps make it easier to submit a Car Insurance claim after an accident or loss, plus understand what to expect from our Car Insurance claim process.
 

We lodge your claim

If your car needs a tow, we can assist with organising that for you. We will then appoint an authorised repairer near your home or work. We guarantee all approved materials and work done by our extensive network of nominated automotive experts.

If your car is driveable, we will advise you to book a convenient time to get a quote to fix your car. Otherwise, we will consider a repairer you choose and if approved, we’ll make the arrangements to get your car repaired.

An excess may be payable depending on your circumstances. We’ll tell you the amount you will need to pay if it applies, plus how you can pay it directly to the repairer.

Lastly, if you need a hire car to get around while yours is out of action and you’re covered for it, just let us know.

 

We assess your claim

We review your damages, policy and all quotes received from the repairer. We will let you know if we can approve your claim or not, and why.

Repair your car

We will fix your vehicle to its equivalent condition, just before the incident. If the repairs were completed by our approved repairer, we guarantee all materials and workmanship, for as long as you own the car. If you have any concerns, we can also do a final inspection on your vehicle.


Replace your car if it’s a total loss

This option only applies to Comprehensive Insurance holders. In order to be eligible, you must have purchased your car new, and we need to have determined it to be a total loss within the first 24 months after you registered it.

We will choose to replace it with either the same or a similar make, model or series where possible, including its accessories stated on your Certificate of Insurance.


Pay you up to the value of your car if it’s a total loss

If your vehicle is a complete write-off, we will pay you up to its agreed value or market value, less any other applicable limits or deductions. For example, the payout may be reduced by any remaining premium payments or excesses you owe.

Read our Car Insurance Product Disclosure Statement for any additional deductions that may apply.


We complete your claim

Once your claim is finalised, we’ll take care of any settlements to other people involved.

We will contact any other drivers or their insurance providers, so you don’t have to. If the other parties or their representatives contact you, please let us know.

That’s it. Then you’re back on the road and can focus on enjoying the things you love again!
