Have a question?
What’s the difference between agreed value and market value?
When you get Comprehensive Car Insurance from NRMA Insurance, you can choose to cover your car for agreed value or market value.
Agreed value means you choose the amount to insure your car for (from a range provided by NRMA Insurance).
Market value means NRMA Insurance will work out how much your car’s worth at the time you make a claim. To do that, they use things like local market prices, your car’s age, its condition, and any modifications or extras.
If a learner driver uses my car, do I need to list them on my policy?
You don’t need to list them on your policy unless they’re the registered owner of the car. NRMA Insurance cover anyone who drives your car, even if they’re not listed.
Who repairs my car if it's damaged?
If your car’s damaged and NRMA Insurance decide it can be repaired, you can have it fixed by an NRMA Insurance Partner Repairer.
There are more than 400 NRMA Insurance Partner Repairers across Australia and NRMA Insurance will help find one that's convenient for you. NRMA Insurance will manage the repair process so you don’t have to worry.
If you've added the Any repairer option, when your car’s damaged and NRMA Insurance decide it can be repaired, you can choose any licensed repairer to fix it (including an NRMA Insurance Partner Repairer). If you choose someone other than an NRMA Insurance Partner Repairer, you might need to manage the repair process yourself.
Do I get a hire car?
With Comprehensive Insurance, NRMA Insurance pay for a hire car if your car’s stolen or it can’t be driven because of an accident that’s not your fault.
If your car’s stolen, NRMA Insurance will pay up to $75 a day for a hire car. They’ll pay for 21 days, until your car’s found and repaired, or until they pay your claim as a total loss (whichever’s first).
If you’re in an accident caused by another driver, you need to be able to give NRMA Insurance the other driver’s name and address and NRMA Insurance need to agree it’s their fault. NRMA Insurance will pay for a hire car until your car’s repaired or until they pay your claim as a total loss.
You can also add an option to get a hire car if yours can’t be driven after any other covered incident (not just theft or an accident caused by another driver). If you add this option, NRMA Insurance will pay up to $75 a day for a hire car for 14 days, until your vehicle’s repaired, or until they pay your claim as a total loss (whichever’s first).
