For a full list of inclusions and exclusions as well as limits that apply, see the product disclosure statement (PDS) on Real's website.
Pay as you drive
Pay as you drive car insurance offers the same benefits as comprehensive cover but can potentially save you money as you only pay for the kilometres you plan to drive.
In order to apply for pay as you drive cover you will need to agree to a set amount of kilometres with Real Insurance. This should be the maximum distance you think you will drive during your cover period. You only pay for what you plan to use and you can top up if required.
