What is not covered by this policy?

There are certain situations when Real Insurance will refuse to pay your claim, including:

  • Your car was driven by someone under the age restriction shown on your Certificate of Insurance
  • Your car was being driven by someone who was not properly licensed
  • Your car is driven by a learner license not accompanied by a full licensed driver
  • Your car was being driven by someone under the influence of alcohol (over the legal limit) or drugs
  • Your car was driven by someone who refused to undergo a drug or alcohol test if asked by the policy
  • It arises from your car being used as a courier or delivery vehicle
  • Your car was being used for any motor sport or racing
  • It results from you using your car to carry more passengers or tow a heavier load than it was designed to do
  • Your car is in an un-roadworthy condition
  • Your car was being driven outside Australia
  • Your claim results from a deliberate, intentional or malicious act by you or someone acting with your consent
  • It results from an act of war or revolution
  • It is for any consequential loss caused by you knowingly driving your vehicle in a damaged condition
  • For depreciation
  • For wear and tear or rust and corrosion
  • For mechanical, electrical or computer breakdowns
  • For any repairs carried out without the express consent of Real Car Insurance
  • For damage to tyres by punctures, cuts or bursts
  • You have failed to take reasonable steps to protect your car and prevent loss or damage
  • Your car has been modified or fitted with non-standard accessories without the express consent of Real Car Insurance.

How much does Real Car Insurance cost?

There are several factors which influence exactly how much your Real Car Insurance premium will cost, including:

  • The policy you choose
  • The claims history of the people who will drive your vehicle
  • The age of the drivers and how much driving experience they have
  • The age, make and model of your vehicle
  • The extras and accessories you have fitted to your car
  • The postcode where your car is kept and whether or not it will be kept garaged overnight
  • How you use your car
  • Whether you opt for agreed value or market value cover
  • Any optional extras you choose
  • The excess you choose to pay.

What is an excess and what does it do?

The excess is the amount of money you are required to contribute towards the cost of a claim, however you will not need to pay an excess if you were not at fault for the damage caused and you’ve provided the insurer with relevant details of the other party.

The following excesses may apply to your cover:

  • What is a basic excess? This is the excess you chose, listen on your Certificate of Insurance.
  • How does an age excess work? This applies in addition to other excesses if at the time of the incident your car was being driven by someone below the age of 25.
  • Will an inexperienced and learner driver excess apply to my policy? This applies if your car was being driven at the time of the incident by a learner driver under 18 years of age or someone over 25 years old who has not held a valid licence to drive in Australia for more than two years.
  • What is an undeclared young driver excess? If your car is driven by someone under 25 years of age who has not been declared as a driver of your car on your Certificate of Insurance, this excess will apply.
  • What does special excess mean? Real may apply this special excess depending on your car, how it is used or the claims history of the drivers of your car. This is listed on your Certificate of Insurance.
  • How does an Outside odometer excess work? This excess applies only to Pay As You Drive policies if at the time of the incident your car’s odometer is below the start odometer you provided to Real at the start of your policy or above the end odometer reading as shown on your Certificate of Insurance.

How can I save money on my policy?

  • Is pay Pay As You Drive right for you? This option means you only pay for the kilometres you plan to drive, so you can potentially save a great deal of money over the cost of a Comprehensive policy if you don't drive much.
  • Should I get an agreed and market value policy? Agreed value policies may feature higher premiums, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not the right option for you.
  • How much cover do you really need? If you don’t require Comprehensive cover, you might be able to save money by choosing a more basic level of cover.
  • Do you really need all those extras? If you’re highly unlikely to need the cover provided by extra cover options, consider not adding them to your policy.
  • What excess should I choose? Adjust your excess to a level suitable to your needs.
  • Should I buy online? Real allows you to take advantage of a discount of up to 10% when you buy your car insurance policy online.

    I already have comprehensive insurance with real insurance of my car. My car is standard but recently i replaced the rims and tyre of my car. The car has standard of steel wheels of 15″ and i upgraded to 18″ of alloy wheels. Do i need to inform to my insurance about that and what happened if the accident will happen they are going to cover my car or not.

      Hi Joe,

      Thanks for getting in touch. While it will depend on your insurer, it’s generally advisable to update your insurer with any modifications you make to your car.

      All the best,
      Richard
