What is Comprehensive Car Insurance?
Comprehensive Car Insurance covers you for accidental damage or loss of your car, as well as damage or your legal liability to someone else's vehicle or property up to $20 million. If you have a bingle or other mishap, Comprehensive Car insurance can get you back on the road and protect you from liability claims that other people might make for damage to their property caused by the use of your car. What does Comprehensive Car Insurance cover?
Comprehensive Car Insurance covers loss or damage to your car, as well as your liability for the damage it causes to other people's property, including their vehicles. Your car is also covered for damage caused by hail, fire, theft, or vandalism. Does Comprehensive Car Insurance cover hail, flood or fire damage?
We'll cover your car for damage caused by the elements, like hail, flood or fire – so long as you hold an active Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy at the time the damage occurs.
Only the Standard excess applies for these claims. We don't charge any additional Age or Unlisted Driver excesses, so you needn't worry about forking out any extra if the elements turn against you. What do I do if I have an accident?
Safety first. Stay away from the traffic – stand on the footpath, or on the side of the road. Call emergency services on 000 if anyone's injured, or the road is blocked.
All our claims can be lodged easily online.
Once you're safe (or have made it home) you log in to My Policy Manager to make a claim. How do I contact Bingle?

Yes, Bingle covers rideshare driving, through apps like Uber, Shebah, Ola, and others. You just need to have the usage type correctly listed on your policy. You can do this when you get a quote or update an existing policy by logging in to self-service. Bingle does not offer cover for taxis, even if they are booked via an app. Does Bingle cover learner drivers?
Yes, Bingle covers learner drivers (people on their Ls). There needs to be a listed driver in the car at the time of the incident to avoid the unlisted driver excess. The learner driver will then be treated as a listed driver, an age excess will apply if they are under the age of 25 at the time of the incident. Once the learner driver is on their Ps you may want to list them as a driver on your policy. Otherwise an unlisted driver excess might apply.
