Are you renewing your registration?

Always compare all six insurers to see if one is more competitive for your current circumstances.

Use the greenslips.com.au calculator to compare all greenslip prices

It takes only a few minutes to use the greenslips.com.au calculator and get all six quotes at once. It is faster than ringing up six insurers and going through the same series of questions six times.

Insurers will ask about you, your vehicle, and your driving history:

About you

  • Area where you (vehicle owner) live
  • Your age
  • Age and gender of youngest driver
  • Driving experience of youngest driver.

Your vehicle

  • Whether it is currently registered
  • Type and shape of vehicle you drive
  • Age of your vehicle
  • How far you travel in it each year
  • Private or business use
  • Other motor insurance and no-claim bonus on the vehicle.

Driving and claims history

  • Number of demerit points on your or youngest driver’s licence
  • Road accidents that were your fault, in the last 3-5 years
  • Any licence suspensions or restrictions in the last 3 years
  • Drug and alcohol convictions in the last 3 years.

It is important to answer these questions accurately otherwise the final prices from each insurer will be wrong. For example, vehicle type is an important factor. If you are not sure whether your vehicle is a motor car or a light goods vehicle, check the shape code on your registration paper.

If you are certain each answer is correct, you will receive accurate final prices from each insurer and be able to make an informed choice.

Next you can contact your choice of greenslip insurer and make a payment, knowing you have compared all six insurers.
