Congratulations to the winners of Mozo Experts Choice Awards for the best car insurance 2018. These awards recognise car insurance policies that provide Australians with exceptional value for money and exceptional quality cover and benefits, so if you’re after a new car insurance policy this winners list is a great place to start your search.
The Mozo Experts Choice Awards have been running since 2014 and recognise products that offer customers the very best in the market.
The Exceptional Value awards recognise car insurance policies that are among the best-priced for the cover they offer. For these awards, we obtained a range of quotes from 58 different comprehensive car insurance policies.
The Exceptional Quality awards recognise premium car insurance products that offer the very highest levels of protection and benefits. For this award we assessed quality of cover on each product, comparing a wide range of features including 24/7 claims, choice of repairer and the option of hire car after an accident. Mozo also assessed customer experiences when dealing with the insurer as well as their track record of handling disputes with the financial ombudsman services.

It’s important to understand that many factors go into determining the cost of car insurance such as where you live, your age, how often you drive as well as the car itself, so you’ll still need to do some comparing of features and options to find a policy that is right for you and then get quotes so that you can compare the price.
For car insurance, we considered a total of 25 features with the essential ones being: 24/7 phone claims, choice of repairer, genuine parts, windscreen excesses, choice of agreed or market value and rental car after accident. If you’d like to see the full list, read the methodology report.
Customer experience scores were sourced from a national survey of 3,693 Australians commissioned by Mozo and undertaken by IPSOS in April 2018, which measured customer ratings of the experiences of getting a quote, dealing with customer service staff and making claims. Dispute data came from the information published by the Financial Ombudsman Service.
