Compulsory Insurance (CTP)

The minimum insurance required by law is included under the registration of all vehicles in Australia. This is the Compulsory Third Party Personal Injury (CTP Greenslip) insurance. Vehicles cannot be registered without this certificate, so every car with a current registration sticker has this insurance

CTP insurance covers everyone involved in a motor vehicle accident, except the driver who caused the accident, for medical and disability costs that result from the accident. We at Travellers Autobarn strongly suggest that everyone travelling to Australia take out his or her own travel/health insurance.

Third Party Property Insurance

It is not required to have any other type of insurance in Australia. However, you may also wish to purchase Third Party Property Damage Insurance that will cover you against costs for damages your car might cause to other people’s property, usually the other car in an accident.
