Car Insurance FAQs

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 14 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 you with the minimum amount of cover you need in an accident.

  • 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.

RACQ’s Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance covers you for compensation claims made by other people who were injured in the accident where you are the at fault driver. CTP Insurance does not cover the damage caused to vehicles as the result of an accident.

In Australia, you are required by law to have a CTP Insurance policy before you can register your car. In Queensland, you can buy a CTP Insurance policy from a licensed insurer like RACQ.

If you choose RACQ as your CTP Insurance provider, you can switch at any time although the actual change will only come into effect from the start of the next registration renewal date.

An excess payment on your car insurance is the amount of money you are required to pay when you make a claim on your policy. Essentially, it’s the amount you agree upon to contribute to the cost of the claim.

If you choose to insure your vehicle for a market value, the value of your vehicle will be determined when you make a claim for an incident. This will be calculated based on your local car market, the age and condition of your vehicle and the kilometres it has travelled.

When you choose an agreed value policy, the value of your vehicle will be mutually agreed on by yourself and RACQ. This value will remain valid until your next renewal. At renewal, if you do not agree with the new value you have been offered, you can call us to discuss.

We’ve got three easy ways you can lodge your RACQ Car Insurance claim. You can lodge your claim online, call us on 13 7202 or visit your local RACQ branch. Go to our How to make a car insurance claim page for more information.

Our friendly claims staff are available 24/7 to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Every situation is different so don’t hesitate to give us a call on 13 7202 if you have questions about your Car Insurance claim.
