Third party property damage (TPPD) car insurance covers damage you cause to someone else's vehicle or property. If you crash into someone's new car, you won't be paying the repair costs - your insurance will. This kind of policy won't cover your car but could stop you from facing big bills from other people.

Third party property is a type of car insurance policy that covers you for damage to other people's property, for example someone else's car, home or shop. It covers only this and nothing else, up to a certain limit (commonly $20 million).
This type of policy adds an additional layer of protection over the bare minimum Compulsory Third Party Insurance, and prevents you from having to be out of pocket for potentially enormous bills.
There's no universally cheapest third party car insurer as your cost will depend on your circumstances. During our analysis of 9 Australian car insurance brands, we found that the average cost of third party property damage car insurance was $317 a year, or $26 a month.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
