What is the difference between Comprehensive Car Insurance and Third Party Liability Car Insurance?
RACQ’s Comprehensive Car Insurance is a policy that provides the most protection for your vehicle. It covers your car for a range of different circumstances including:
- Cover for the loss or damage to your vehicle in an accident, theft, fire or weather event
- Payment for any emergency repairs to your vehicle or for the cost of hiring a car when yours has been stolen (for up to 21 days)
- Third Party Liability cover for when you cause damage to someone else’s vehicle or property
RACQ’s Third Party Liability Car Insurance, on the other hand, provides a minimum amount of cover.
- It gives you cover if you have damaged someone else’s vehicle or property in an incident, so you only have to pay your policy excess instead of the full repair costs.
- If the other party is at fault and uninsured, RACQ Third Party Car Insurance will cover repairs up to $5,000.
- Unlike Comprehensive Car Insurance, Third Party Liability Car Insurance does not provide cover for your vehicle in the event of an accident, theft, fire, vandalism or a weather event. Emergency repairs and hire costs are not covered under Third Party Car Insurance either.
