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

When it comes to getting car insurance in Tasmania, there are a few handy features that may be worth looking out for in the policies you’re considering.

  • Flexible payments
    Who doesn’t love a flexible payment schedule? With Youi, you can choose to pay for your 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
    Get that new car smell back with Youi’s new car replacement policy feature. If your brand new car is considered 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 your windscreen, window glass or sunroof glass gets damaged on Tasmanian roads, or elsewhere across the mainland, no need to worry – 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
    The last thing you need after your car’s been stolen or damaged in an accident where you weren’t at fault is to get stuck with no vehicle. That’s why certain Youi car insurance policies include a hire car for up to 14 days after some insured events.6

Got questions about car insurance in Tasmania? You might find the answers here.

VIEW THE PDS CAR INSURANCE TERMINOLOGY

In Tasmania, it’s mandatory to have Compulsory Third Party (CTP) car insurance, which is handled by the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (MAIB). This cover protects you from the financial impact of causing injury or death to others as the result of a motor accident where you’re at fault.

Once you have CTP insurance, the rest is up to you! There are a range of types of car insurance available in Tasmania to choose from on top of your CTP, including Youi’s Comprehensive car insurance, Third Party Fire & Theft and Third Party Property Only.

Comprehensive car insurance is (you guessed it) Youi’s most comprehensive level of cover, protecting your vehicle from insured events like accidental damage, theft and attempted theft, fire, and most severe weather events like storms, floods and hail.3

When moving interstate, there are lots of things you need to consider, one of them being your car. If you’re planning on moving to Tasmania from another state or territory in Australia, it’s important to note that different parts of Australia have different rules for registering vehicles.

In Tasmania, you must transfer registration within three months of living there.7 If not, your vehicle is considered to be unregistered, even if it is still registered in another state or territory.

To transfer registration, you’ll need to go in-person to a Service Tasmania Service Centre with the required documents and your interstate number plates. If your vehicle has been unregistered for more than three months, you’ll need to visit an Approved Inspection Station (AIS) to have it inspected before you can re-register it.8

Another thing to note is that in Tasmania, the cost of your CTP insurance is included in your vehicle registration.9
