With Australian Seniors, our optional hire car cover pays a daily hire car amount of up to $50 per day to help you while you get your car repaired and back on the road.

Car Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose my own repairer when I make a claim?

If you need to make a claim and your car needs repairs, we’ll choose a repairer located as close as possible to your home or work from our extensive repairer network. When you use one of our approved repairers, the repairs are covered by a guarantee, so long as you remain the registered owner of the vehicle.

If you prefer to choose your own repairer, you can arrange for a quote and send it to us. But please note that we reserve the right to determine and arrange for repairs to be carried out by our preferred repairer.

Can I change my car insurance excess?

You can increase your excess at any time during your car insurance policy. However, you can only decrease your excess when renewing your policy.

Do I qualify for Pay As You Drive cover?

If you are not driving frequently you could qualify for our Pay as You Drive cover and save money on your car insurance. If you are eligible for our Pay As You Drive cover when obtaining a quote, you will be offered that option.

Do you cover learner drivers?
