Greenslip discounts in NSW
Greenslip prices are set by the insurers. When insurers set prices they consider many factors such as vehicle type, driver age, driving record and claims history. The prices the insurers intend to charge must first be submitted to State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA). Insurers are not allowed to vary those prices unless they are resubmitted to SIRA. Insurers are not allowed to further discount those prices.
Eligibility for a pension or other concession is not a factor used by insurers to determine green slip prices. Pensioner discounts are not available on green slips in NSW. The cost of NSW registration is free to those with appropriate eligibility for a pension. Information on pensioner concessions is available on this website.
