Make sure you have adequate car insurance cover
Aussies who are struggling to cope with the high cost of motoring must ensure they are not skimping on car insurance cover.
With many people finding it hard to make ends meet at the moment, it is hardly surprising that a lot of drivers have been desperately searching for ways to reduce their outgoings.
Petrol prices continue to fluctuate and the price of making necessary repairs remains stubbornly high.
Some Aussies are saving cash by taking out third-party car insurance policies – the bare minimum required.
While this may appear to be a shrewd move on the face of it, leaders at the Insurance Council of Australia have insisted that it is a risky strategy.
Speaking to National Features, spokesperson for the organisation Campbell Fuller said that people need to scrutinise different policies before they commit to a deal.
"Every insurer offers a different motor policy, so it pays to look closely at the terms and conditions of your policy and the exclusions and inclusions," he was quoted as saying.
