    Price

    After comparing multiple quotes from 30 national car insurance brands, Kogan's comprehensive car insurance was found to be the second most expensive. Young people faced particularly high premiums, three times higher than the national average and almost double the average for their age group. If price is a priority, you'll likely find cheaper car insurance elsewhere.

    Keep in mind, the best car insurance for you may be based on more than price.

        Hi,

        Kogan can offer cover if your car is used for both private and business use. They don’t insure cars used only for business. There are some exclusions to be aware of. For example, they will not provide cover if the business use is:

        -Carrying or moving goods for reward (such as couriers or food deliveries)
        -Hiring out the vehicle as a rental car
        -Professional driving instruction
        -Vehicle racing (professional or amateur)
        -Taxis

        You can call Kogan on 1300 034 888 to ask whether they can offer you the insurance you need.

        Regards,
        James
