What is a Green Slip?

Greenslip is the term commonly used in NSW for Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance. A greenslip is an insurance policy that covers the vehicle owner for people killed or injured in a road accident involving their vehicle.

A greenslip is a legal requirement for all motor vehicles registered in NSW, except trailers, which are covered by the towing vehicle. A greenslip does not cover damage to cars or property.

Why Do I Need a Green Slip?

CTP greenslips are mandatory in NSW because even very good and experienced drivers are sometimes involved in road accidents.

CTP insurance provides protection from the burden of paying for somebody else’s injuries, especially if they are serious and lifelong. Many people do not have the financial resources to pay the considerable legal and health costs of treating somebody’s serious injuries from a road accident.

Why Compare Prices?

It is worth comparing greenslip prices before renewing registration. Prices vary and the cheapest insurer last year may not be the cheapest insurer this year. Insurers charge different prices depending on customer risk levels.

Insurers use their own weightings to different risk factors to determine the premiums they will charge. Only one insurer now includes At-Fault Driver Cover as an added benefit with its greenslips.
