Mozo snapshot

Looking for a car insurance policy that’s transparent and keeps things easy to understand? Then Poncho Car Insurance could be exactly what you’re looking for. Not only will you have a 24/7 claims service on your side, but Poncho has a simplified $800 excess for all listed drivers, and if you’ve got more than one driver in the family, you’ll be able to have more than one car or driver on the same policy.

Poncho's Comprehensive Car Insurance policy is even a multi-award winner! It took out two 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Car Insurance Awards for Exceptional Value Car Insurance and Exceptional Value Young Driver Insurance.

Key features

Poncho Car Insurance is all about changing up the way Aussie drivers look at car insurance, starting with their simple car insurance policy. This comprehensive car insurance policy will cover loss or damage to your car in the event of an accident, storm or theft, and if you damage your windscreen or window glass, Poncho will organise repairs without you having to pay any excess.

While you won’t have your choice of repairer, Poncho has an Australian-wide network of authorised repairers that provider a lifetime guarantee on all repairs. And if you do get into an accident and make a claim, your choice of transport is included for up to $80 a day. If your car cannot be repaired, Poncho will treat you to a brand new car, so long as your old car has less than 15,000km on the odometer.

One of the special parts about this car insurance policy is the $0 excess for windscreen cover as well as the monthly premiums, which Poncho says works more like a monthly subscription with no lock-in contract or cancellation fee. 

You can also say goodbye to complex excess options, as Poncho offers a flat $800 excess for all listed drivers on the policy. However, just keep in mind that if any unlisted drivers cause an accident, you’ll have to pay a $3,000 excess. There is also no roadside assistance included in this policy.

Who is it good for

The Poncho Car Insurance policy could be a great choice for Aussie drivers who like the idea of paying their premium monthly and want to insure more than one driver or car under the same policy.

Any catches

If you aren’t going to be the only person driving the car, be sure to list other regular drivers on your policy. Otherwise if they get into an accident, you’ll have to pay a $3,000 excess to make a claim.
