TIO’s Comprehensive car insurance covers you for things like accidental loss or damage to your car, damage to other people’s property up to $20 million, cyclone, flood and bushfires, and personal items stolen from your car up to $1,000 an incident.

On its Comprehensive car insurance policy, TIO allows you to add optional extras including covering the cost of a rental car following an accident for 30 days up to $100 per day, removal of basic excess for some windscreen claims, and coverage for accidental loss or damage to any tools of trade. TIO also allows you to add an optional unnamed driver excess, which could lead to your premium being decreased if you specify all of your drivers.

You can lodge a claim with TIO by submitting an online motor claim form or by calling the TIO claims team.

TIO will send you a renewal notice at least 14 days prior to the expiry date of your car insurance policy. If you’re happy with the renewal terms and don’t need to notify TIO of anything as required by the renewal notice, TIO will automatically renew the policy on those terms.
