Mozo snapshot

Are you after a car insurance policy scoring goals in coverage and optional extras? Well QBE has a comprehensive policy that might suit your needs. It even comes with a $75 discount on your first year’s premium, available when you apply online. Plus if you’ve got a shiny new set of wheels, the new-for-old replacement could be a big drawcard. On top of all this, since QBE snagged an award for Exceptional Value in the 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Car Insurance Awards, you know you'll be getting a solid deal.

Key features

QBE Comprehensive Car Insurance is hitting some winners straight off the bat. A wide range of events and support are covered as standard, including accidental damage, fire and theft, weather damage, essential repairs up to $500, and emergency transport and accommodation up to $1,000. 

Reasonable towing costs will also be covered after an incident and if you’ve been in a not-at-fault accident, QBE will also sort you out for a hire car while your ride is being repaired or replaced. New car drivers can cruise easy knowing there is new-for-old car replacement if your vehicle is written off (so long as it’s under three years old and has driven less than 60,000km).

There are a few things you’ll only be able to access at an additional cost. You’ll need to decide if you want to opt-in for hire car cover after an at fault accident or weather event, and for excess-free windscreen replacement (excess-free repairs included in standard cover). The ability to choose your repairer is also available as an optional extra.

The cherry red convertible on top is the $75 discount you’ll get on your first year’s premium simply for applying online.

Who is it good for

This comprehensive policy will suit any driver looking for expansive cover. However, it could be particularly good for new car owners, as the new-for-old replacement covers cars which have driven a substantial 60,000km and are up to three years old.

Any catches

Like all insurance policies, not everything is covered or included as standard. If you want your choice of repairer or other optional extras, read your PDS carefully and opt-in.
