Green slip comparison
As well as the cheapest greenslip, consider other factors when making your greenslip purchase.
Look at any additional features on offer from the insurers, ease of purchase online, by phone or in person, terms and conditions and additional discounts.
The tables below allow you to compare those factors for each greenslip insurer.
All greenslip insurers provide the statutory cover required under the Acts*.
One insurer provides 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 insurer’s schedule of benefits.
The tables below offer an overview of the insurer’s position, the schedule of benefits and some notable exclusions. More information on At-Fault Driver Cover is 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.
|Insurer||Additional feature – At-Fault Driver Cover|
|ALLIANZ||Since 1 September 2021 Allianz no longer offers At-Fault Driver Protection insurance to new or renewing customers with CTP Insurance. For existing customers, At-Fault Driver Protection Insurance Policy cover will continue until their policy’s next due date.|
|NRMA INSURANCE||CTP Driver Protection cover is automatically provided with NRMA Insurance greenslips. NRMA CTP Driver Protection provides benefits to some drivers for certain serious injuries if they have a car accident that is their fault.
Certain drivers and vehicles are excluded from coverage and the CTP Driver Protection policy contains limitations, exclusions and conditions which you should check.
The policy document is on the NRMA site.
Notable exclusions from At-Fault Driver Cover
|NRMA INSURANCE||Motor bikes
Goods carrying vehicles with a gross vehicle mass greater than 4.5 tonnes
Hire vehicle, taxis, tow trucks and buses
We have listed the exclusions which we think are notable. The insurer will reject payment on the basis of many other exclusions. Those other exclusions are listed in the insurer policy documents. For a full list of exclusions, you need to refer to the policy document.

*We include these benefits for customers of Allianz who have existing policies only. Allianz pays only one benefit for any motor accident. This will be the highest of the applicable benefits.
NRMA pays one amount:
- If you suffer more than one injury, it pays for the injury with the highest benefit
- If you die, it pays only the death benefit (even if you suffered from one or more specified injuries)
- If you are paid for any injury and later die as a result of injuries, then NRMA does not pay the death benefit as well.

Other than terms for At-Fault Driver Cover, all insurers offer the same terms for greenslips. To be allowed to issue greenslips, all greenslip insurers must provide the statutory cover required under the Acts*.
No greenslip insurer provides a schedule of Terms and Conditions or a Product Disclosure Statement for CTP greenslips.
State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) monitors the performance of each greenslip insurer .
Where insurers provide some form of protection for at-fault drivers as part of the greenslip, they provide a policy document. Allianz continues to provide a policy document for existing holders only of Allianz At-Fault Driver Protection. NRMA Insurance provides a policy document for CTP Driver Protection.
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.
Discounts for factors such as a good driving record and lack of claims are already reflected in the greenslip price, provided the price being applied is appropriate 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 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 the insurer’s CTP green slip|
|GIO||GIO offers 10% multi-policy discounts for three or more eligible policies.
GIO will give a $50.00 discount off your next Comprehensive insurance premium, if you have GIO CTP insurance and a maximum No Claim Discount on your Comprehensive insurance.
The discount does not apply to fleets or policies issued by GIO Business Insurance.
Check the GIO site for full terms and exclusions
|NRMA INSURANCE||NRMA offers Loyalty Discounts.
If you bundle your CTP Greenslip with other NRMA Insurance products, NRMA Insurance offers Loyalty Discounts on certain other insurance products.
With the Loyalty Discount, the more eligible policies you have and the longer you have been with NRMA, the greater the discount.
The discount does not apply to commercial policies.
Check the NRMA Insurance site for full terms and exclusions.
All insurers electronically notify Service NSW of the greenslip purchase.
Subject to clearance of funds, notification will usually go through to Service NSW within 30 to 60 minutes of an approved greenslip purchase.
