What are the main differences between NRMA Classic Care and Premium Care?
Premium care is a little more expensive, at $91 annually at the time of writing. However, it provides a few more benefits. These include the following:
- Accident assistance. If you're in an accident over 100km from home and can't get back, NRMA will help you arrange accommodation and travel.
- $3,000 extra cover. If you break down, you can get up to $3,000 towards accommodation, car hire and onward travel.
- Taxi cover. You'll get $50 towards taxi fares if your vehicle needs to be towed. You can use this up to three times a year.
- Pets Plus Add-on. If you buy a premium policy and have a pet, you can also get transport and boarding for them plus access to vets in case of an accident or breakdown.
- Child restraint installation. NRMA will do child restraint installations or adjustments for you at its car servicing centres. Alternatively, they might be able to come to you.
- Vehicle health check. If you are broken down, NRMA can perform a six-point check for your windscreen, tyres, oil, battery, water and more.
