Policy terms explained

Comprehensive car insurance With Virgin Car Insurance Comprehensive cover you’re fully protected against all manner of accidents, whether you or someone else is at fault. Your car is also protected should someone steal it, vandalise it, set it alight or breaks in.

(See our PDS A, PDS B for the full details).

Duty of disclosure

What you must tell us:

  • When you take out this insurance for the first time - you must be honest when answering our questions and tell us anything known to you and which a reasonable person in the circumstances would include in answer to the question.
  • When you renew, extend, vary or reinstate your insurance - you must disclose every matter that you know or could reasonably be expected to know, is relevant to us in deciding whether to insure you. You are not required to disclose anything that diminishes the risk to us as the insurer, that we know or should know based on our business, or is common knowledge.

We use this information to decide whether to insure you and on what terms. When giving this information, you are doing so for yourself and anyone else that will be insured under the policy.

If you do not tell us
If you do not comply with your duty, we may reduce or refuse to pay a claim and/or cancel the policy. If you are fraudulent, we may also have the option to treat the policy as if it never operated.

Excess
Excess is the amount you may have to pay towards each claim.

  • Basic Excess -
    Applies to all claims. It will be a standard amount. You may also be able to choose a higher amount for a lower premium.
  • Additional Excesses -
    Applies when the car is driven by a person who is not an excluded driver, but who:
    • is under 21 years of age
    • is aged 21 to 24 years inclusive
    • has not held a full Australian licence for at least two years
    • is not listed as a driver on the Insurance Certificate.
  • Reduced Window Glass Excess -
    Applies only if indicated on the Insurance Certificate and allows you to pay an additional fee on your premium to pay a lower excess if it’s only the car's window requiring repair.

No claim discount (NCD)
A no claim discount on Virgin Car Insurance Comprehensive is calculated on your years of driving experience and claims record. As you gain more years of claim-free driving, you get a discount from the full-priced premium until it reaches a maximum discount (also known as Rating 1). You get to Rating 1 because based on your track record we believe you're less likely to make a claim than an inexperienced driver. (Note that when taking out Virgin Car Insurance we may ask for verification of your current no claims discount.)

Permitted use of the car
If the car is used for purposes that you have not declared to us, you will have no cover. Permitted use (selected from the categories below) is shown on your Insurance Certificate.

  • Private Use or Private and Commuting Use -
    For social, domestic and pleasure purposes only. It’s also for travelling between home and a regular place of work.
  • Private and Occasional Business Use -
    As per Private and Commuting use above, plus use for occasional business purposes by the regular driver or spouse only. Occasional Business means the car is not registered for business use and not an essential part of earning income from such business.
  • Private and Business Use -
    As per Private and Commuting use above, plus use for the business of the regular driver or spouse by any driver listed on the current Insurance Certificate. (but no more than 4 employees may be listed)

Use that’s never covered -

  • carrying passengers or other people's goods for payment
  • driving tuition for payment
  • hiring the car to other people.

Use that's always covered -

  • private car sharing and voluntary home or community service, provided that no profit is made.

When you take out Virgin Car Insurance Comprehensive we provide cover for damage to your personal effects resulting from an accident involving your car.(Limits do apply. See our PDS A, PDS B for the full details).

Product Disclosure Statement
