At-Fault Driver Cover

All greenslip insurers provide the statutory cover required under the Acts. Before 1 December 2017 these were Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 and Motor Accidents (Lifetime Care and Support) Act 2006. Since 1 December 2017 insurers provide statutory cover under Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 and Motor Accidents (Lifetime Care and Support) Act 2006.

Two of the insurers also incorporate an additional feature, providing benefits for drivers where the driver is injured and at fault in an accident. That feature is generally called At-Fault Driver Cover.

None of the insurers offers additional features other than At-Fault Driver Cover.

At-Fault Driver Cover was offered under the old greenslip scheme because the driver at fault in an accident was not covered to the same extent as other people, unless catastrophically injured. Under the new green slip scheme, drivers at fault can claim statutory benefits for up to 6 months.

At-Fault Driver Cover is limited by policy wording and exclusion and is also limited to specific injuries and the amounts set out in the insurers’ schedule of benefits.

The terms, exclusions and schedule of benefits vary, insurer to insurer.

The tables below offer an overview of each insurer’s position, the schedule of benefits and some notable exclusions. More information on At-Fault Driver Cover is available on this site.

Before purchasing a greenslip you should refer to the insurer’s policy document to understand the full terms applying to the insurer’s At-Fault Driver Cover.

Terms and conditions

No greenslip insurer provides a schedule of Terms and Conditions or a Product Disclosure Statement for CTP greenslips.

To be allowed to issue greenslips, all greenslip insurers must provide the statutory cover required under the Acts. Before 1 December 2017 this was Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 and Motor Accidents (Lifetime Care and Support) Act 2006. Since 1 December 2017, they provide statutory cover under Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 and Motor Accidents (Lifetime Care and Support) Act 2006. The performance of each greenslip insurer in this respect is monitored by State Insurance Regulatory Authority (was Motor Accident Authority).

Where insurers provide some form of protection for at-fault drivers as part of the greenslip, they provide a policy document for At-Fault Driver Cover.

Other than the terms for At-Fault Driver Cover, the greenslip terms offered by all insurers are the same.

Insurer Terms and conditions
AAMI No schedule of Terms and Conditions or Product Disclosure Statement is provided for greenslips.
ALLIANZ No schedule of Terms and Conditions or Product Disclosure Statement is provided for greenslips.
A Policy Document is provided for the Allianz At-Fault Driver Protection Insurance.
GIO No schedule of Terms and Conditions or Product Disclosure Statement is provided for greenslips.
NRMA INSURANCE No schedule of Terms and Conditions or Product Disclosure Statement is provided for greenslips.
A Policy document is provided for the Compulsory Third Party At-fault Driver Cover.
QBE No schedule of Terms and Conditions or Product Disclosure Statement is provided for greenslips.

 

Discounts

Greenslip prices are determined by each insurer, after consideration of many factors including location, vehicle and driver age, claims history and driving record. Insurers can charge premiums only on a basis which has been submitted to SIRA and which has not been rejected by SIRA. Therefore discounts for factors such as a good driving record and a lack of claims are already reflected in the greenslip price, provided the price being applied is the appropriate one for the vehicle and owner characteristics.

Some insurers purport to discount the greenslip price on the basis that other insurance products are placed with that insurer (product bundling). They offer discounts on other types of insurance (such as comprehensive vehicle insurance) on the basis that a greenslip and other products are bundled with that insurer.

A summary of the discounts offered by each of the insurers on other insurance products is set out in the table below. For more information on the discounts you should check the insurer’s site and speak to your insurer.

Insurer Discount on other products with a CTP green slip
AAMI None.
ALLIANZ None.
GIO GIO offers 10% multi-policy discounts.

NRMA INSURANCE NRMA offers multi-policy discounts.
If you bundle your CTP Greenslip with other NRMA Insurance products, NRMA Insurance offers loyalty discounts on certain other insurance products.

The discount does not apply to commercial policies.
Check the NRMA Insurance website for full terms and exclusions.
QBE None.
