Mozo snapshot

Apia’s Comprehensive Car Insurance gives you flexibility to alter the finer details of your cover to suit your needs while presenting multiple options to drive down your premium. Apia offers motorists a range of discounts including a no claims bonus, multi-policy discount, a discount for taking out your policy online, and one for drivers who don’t drive very often.

Key features

This comprehensive car insurance policy will allow you to cover your wheels at an agreed value or at the standard market value. If Apia can't find one of their certified repairers close to your location or the site of an accident, they'll let you choose your own repairer at no extra cost. 

If you want to choose your own excess to drive down the cost of your premium payments, this policy gives you that option. But if repairs won't cut it and your wheels are a write-off, Apia will replace your car with a similar make and model, so long as the original was under 10 years old. This is a pretty generous age limit compared to other offers, with a dollar cap of $40,000. If your property in the vehicle was stolen or damaged, that's covered for up to $1,000 too.

If your car is stolen, Apia covers the costs of your rental for 21 days. However, you’ll have to opt for additional extras if you want Apia to cover the costs of a rental after an accident or if you want roadside assistance as part of your policy.

Other optional extras include 24/7 roadside assistance, and one excess-free windscreen or glass repair or replacement each policy period. Just remember, extras come at an extra cost.

An attractive feature of this comprehensive car insurance policy is its discounts. By taking a quote out online you’re eligible for a 5% discount; no claim bonuses can climb as high as 65%; and you could also cut 20% off your premium if you take out more than one insurance policy with Apia.

Plus, if you drive under 20,000km a year, you may be eligible for further premium reductions with Apia's Drive Less Pay Less discount.

Who is it good for

Apia rewards drivers over the age of 50 with cheaper premiums on their insurance policies, so if you’re a little older it's worth getting a quote online. Drivers who don’t rack up many kilometres but still want top quality cover for their car should also consider this policy.

Any catches

Just keep in mind if you have any kids listed on the policy that are under the age of 25 and are involved in an accident you could be up for a hefty $1,500 young driver excess.
