Mozo research has revealed that where you call home can make a massive difference to how much you pay to insure your wheels, with drivers in some states paying 60% more for comprehensive car insurance than others.
Victorians are paying the most, with bills averaging $1,345. NSW and the Northern Territory aren’t far behind either, with average annual car insurance bills of $1,239 and $1,241 respectively. On the other end of the scale, Tasmanians are paying an average of just $811.
While some Aussies are happy to pay these prices for the sake of comprehensive cover for their wheels, others will be glad to hear that there are huge differences between the cheapest and most expensive policies in each state - which means for savvy drivers, there could be big savings on offer as well.
“Obviously, packing up your whole life and moving cities just to save on your car insurance isn’t realistic, but there are other ways to make sure you’re getting the best value possible when you sign on for comprehensive cover,” said Mozo Director Kirsty Lamont.
"There’s definitely savings out there for drivers who compare policies, with our data showing an average $1,000 difference between the cheapest and most expensive policy."
