NSW Comprehensive Car Insurance vs Other Levels of Cover

Like every other state and territory, NSW requires all car owners to have compulsory third party (CTP) or ‘green slip’ insurance as a bare minimum level of coverage.

This is how the coverage varies between different levels:

Type Damage to your car Damage to other people’s property (e.g. other cars) Damage or loss caused by theft of your car Injuries or death to other people in an accident
Compulsory third party Suncorp car insurance claims number Insurance car rental europe Car insurance business use admiral Dxa49w3 1 800 the general car insurance

A comprehensive car insurance policy can give you the most peace of mind, but comprehensive coverage can vary between different providers. That’s why CANSTAR rates NSW policies on value as well as price.

NSW Crime Statistics

The price of the premium you pay for car insurance is influenced by a range of factors. Obviously, the higher the likelihood of you making a claim, the higher your premium will be.

A high crime rate in your suburb, for example, can result in a higher premium.

Car Theft

According to the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOSCAR), there were 13,198 incidents of motor vehicle theft in NSW during the year to June 2016.

These were the worst hit areas:

NOTE: A car insurance policy usually won’t cover the items stolen from your vehicle but it may cover any damage to the vehicle if it was broken into.

NSW Road Weather Dangers

While you’re less likely to experience a tropical cyclone in NSW than Queensland or the Northern Territory, NSW is still quite prone to severe hailstorms and flash flooding.  In the alpine regions, such as the Snowy Mountains, snow and ice can also pose a danger on the roads. Bushfires are also a threat throughout the state. All of these weather hazards could damage or write-off your car.

In terms of insured losses, the costliest natural disaster in Australian history actually took place in NSW. This was the devastating 1999 Sydney hailstorm which had insurance losses of over $1.7 billion. In 2011 the Insurance Council of Australia said that if this event was to impact present society the losses would be around $4.3 billion.

According to Budget Direct, the top three hail hotspots in NSW for the 2013/2014 storm season were Armidale, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour. Armidale was also ranked as the top hail hotspot in Australia, with Port Macquarie second and Coffs Harbour fourth. In these areas you might expect to pay higher car insurance premiums.

Most comprehensive NSW car insurance policies will cover loss or damage to your vehicle as a result of hail, storm, flood and fire, but be sure to check the PDS.

The company was founded in 1992 by Douw Steyn as the Budget Insurance Company, an underwriter. Budget Insurance Services was founded in 1997 and the following year Budget Insurance Company ceased underwriting and became an intermediary business, marketing policies underwritten by a panel of insurers. In 1999 it acquired Arnott Century, and changed its name to Budget Retail. The group acquired Dial Direct and Bennetts in 2001. In 2002 it launched an affinity business,[clarification needed] called Junction which was a major contributor to its growth through partners such as Post Office, M&S Money, Bradford & Bingley, and Yes Insurance.[citation needed]

In 2003, the company launched its own uninsured loss recovery business, ACM ULR, and in the same year it ran a PR and marketing campaign for Bennetts, helping to establish the bike insurer as a leading brand in the UK market.[citation needed] In 2004, Budget was noted as providing the most competitive home insurance,[2] and the cheapest motor insurance cover.[3]

The company opened its Cape Town Contact Centre in 2004, set up Comparethemarket.com as a complimentary service in 2005, and sold Budget Retail in 2006. In July 2007 the company changed its name to BGL Group, launching an eco-friendly car insurance site, ibuyeco.co.uk, and relaunching the comparethemarket.com insurance price comparison site.[citation needed]

The year 2009 saw the creation of comparethemeerkat.com – online meerkat comparison website as part of a spoof advertising campaign featuring a CGI meerkat character named Aleksandr Orlov. French price comparison sites LesFurets.com and CreditMieux.com were acquired in 2010,[1] and Dutch site Verzekeringssite.nl was acquired in 2012.[2] The latter was rebranded as hoyhoy.nl in 2014.

In 2013, BGL group launched Beagle Street, the first online only life insurer in the UK.

In 2015, Bennetts was sold to Saga Group [3].


The group's main company name is BISL Limited which was founded in 1996[4] - trading under the names of Budget, Dial Direct, Bennetts, Junction, ACM ULR, Fusion (no connection with the UK commercial insurer of the same name, established in 2001), and Comparethemarket.com.

The group has a formal commitment to support national, local and employee-nominated causes, and ensures that its people are actively encouraged to support charities and other community initiatives.[5]
