The Westpac Comprehensive policy is just what the name suggests - comprehensive. It covers just about any fix you might expect car insurance to cover, including:
Just like any other car insurance policy, there are a number of things that are excluded from your Westpac cover. These include if the accident happens when:
When you take out a car insurance policy with Westpac, like with most insurers, you can choose either low or high excess. But what does that mean and which one is best?
Well, if you opt for high excess, you’ll pay a lower premium, but if you ever do make a claim, you’ll wind up getting a lower payout. Opt for low excess, and your premiums will be higher, but your insurance will cover more of the cost if you do make a claim.
As for which is best, that’s up to you to decide, depending on your budget and how likely you think you are to claim.
Westpac will work out your premium depending on a bunch of factors, like who you are, what car you drive and where you live. Ultimately, what they’re trying to guess is how likely you are to be in an accident or make a claim - the more likely, the more you’ll pay.
Some questions you might have to answer to work out your premium include:
Car insurance premiums can be a pretty big cost to fit into your budget - so it’s nice to have some flexibility about how you pay. The good news is, you can pay your Westpac premium either in one lump sum or as monthly installments at no extra cost.
Another thing that can make paying your car insurance premiums much easier is cashing in on some great discounts. With a Westpac car insurance policy you may be able to snag a no claims discount, as well as a loyalty discount.
There’s no better way to find out what a Westpac car insurance policy is like than getting it straight from the horse's mouth.
