What features might QLD drivers look for in their car insurance?

When deciding on a new vehicle insurance policy, Queenslanders may be interested in how to get the best value for the inclusions that suit their needs. But what specific features might Queenslanders be on the lookout for?

Take a look at these inclusions that could have a significant impact on your car insurance premium.

  • Flexible payments
    Need to split up your payments over the year? No worries. With Youi, you can pay for 12 months of car insurance in one lump sum or over 12 monthly instalments. It might cost you a bit extra to pay monthly, but some people go with this option as it works better for their finances.3
  • New car replacement
    How good is having a new car? How bad is it when it’s written off? It’s all good with Youi. If your new car is a total loss within 2 years of it being first registered, we’ll replace it or pay you the replacement cost.4
  • Reduced excess for windscreens
    If driving on those rough Queensland roads, or in other states and territories, leads to chips and cracks in your windscreen, window glass or sunroof glass, don’t stress – you may be able to opt for a reduced excess for claims that solely involve these parts of your car.5
  • Hire car following an incident
    Not being able to drive your car for a while after it’s been stolen or damaged in an accident where you weren’t at fault can really throw out the daily routine. So certain Youi car insurance policies include a hire car for up to 14 days after some insured events.6

It’s well known that cameras are used on Queensland roads to target offences like using your phone illegally while driving, or drivers and passengers not wearing seatbelts. Along with harsh penalties, this can result in Queensland drivers losing demerit points, and in some cases, their licences if they do the wrong thing.7

If you’ve lost your licence, had it suspended or incurred demerit points, it can be difficult to get car insurance - so make sure you’re doing the right thing on the road, especially in Queensland!

To start off, you’ll need mandatory Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance,8 which protects you from the financial impact of causing injury or death to others as the result of a motor accident.

From there, you can choose from a range of Youi’s car insurance options depending on your individual needs. Explore Youi’s Comprehensive insurance, Third Party Fire & Theft insurance, and Third Party Property Only insurance to see which might suit you best.

First of all, welcome to the Sunshine State! To get settled in your new home, you’ll need to make sure your car’s registration has been transferred from your previous address to your new one in Queensland within 14 days. To do this, you’ll need to provide a current Queensland safety certificate9 to a transport and motoring customer service centre.

Then, you should consider whether moving to Queensland has changed what you’re looking for in a car insurance policy. For quality cover in Queensland, consider Youi’s Comprehensive car insurance to protect your car from theft, accidental damage, storm, hail, floods and much more.3
