Our Verdict

  • It's one of the few insurers to let you pay-by-kilometre – ideal if you drive less.
  • KOBA offers specialised Tesla car insurance, offering unique coverage for Tesla owners.
  • It measures your car usage, so you pay a small fixed fee to cover your car while parked and a few cents for each kilometre you drive.
  • It only offer comprehensive cover, so look elsewhere if you just want third party only cover.

Exclusions

Like all insurers, there are some incidents you won't be covered for. With KOBA, these include:

  • Your car being used for any unlawful purpose
  • Your car being used in racing, trials or rallies
  • Your car being used in connection with the motor trade (except for repairing or servicing)
  • Your car being used to carry passengers or other people's goods for payment
  • Your car being driven by someone under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Your car being driven in an unsafe, unroadworthy or overloaded condition
  • Tyre damage caused by punctures, bursts or cuts
  • Consequential loss
Keep in mind that you'll generally have to pay an excess whenever you make a claim. This is an amount you need to contribute towards the cost of a claim. It's standard among all insurers and will be outlined to you when you sign up.

Bottom line about KOBA car insurance

KOBA is ideal if you're a low usage driver as you only pay for what you use. Customers who drive less than 6,000km per year could make some big savings compared to a traditional car insurance policy. It's also good for letting you keep track of your trip costs, including petrol spend, and it caps your km charge if you drive more than 250km in a day. However, if you're just looking for sign-up discounts and more traditional cover, then you may want to look elsewhere.

      Hi Terena, younger drivers are typically harder to insure because they’re seen as more risky to insurers but if your son has a clean driving record then it should still be achievable. You might find this page more helpful: https://www.finder.com.au/car-insurance-for-p-platers
      I hope this helps!
