What Melbourne drivers should know about car insurance

Voted as the most liveable city in the world in 2015 (for the fifth time) by The Economist, Melbourne is home to an incredible arts and entertainment scene, a bustling food culture, and a year-round festival and sports calendar.

It is also unique in its challenges to drivers. Few places in Australia offer the intricacies of dodging trams, dealing with harsh storms one day and blistering heat the next. For the savvy driver, car insurance is a no brainer.

Is it better to search for the cheapest car insurance in Melbourne though? Well, you should obviously be looking for great value policies, although not necessarily the cheapest – you could be missing out on great features! For a few dollars more, here are some extras that suit drivers in Melbourne, and come bundled in with some comprehensive policies.

  • Hire car rental. In the event you get in a traffic accident, and your car requires several days worth of repairs, your insurer may be able to offer a hire car for you to drive in the meantime. No need to ride the tram!
  • Roadside assistance. Car not as reliable as it used to be? Some policies include roadside assistance memberships in case you need some help on the go.
  • Personal effects cover. Personal effects cover protects you in the event that thieves steal precious cargo from your vehicle.
