With the right cover, you can cruise

Cars cost money to buy, money to own, and money to run. So anywhere you can save deserves closer inspection. With Woolworths Employees’ Credit Union’s Motor Vehicle Insurance, you can relax and enjoy the drive, knowing that should anything happen, you can be back on the road without major expense or hassles.

Competitive, convenient cover backed by QBE

Motor Vehicle Insurance is one of a comprehensive range of insurance solutions offered through our association with QBE Insurance. Founded in 1886, QBE is one of Australia’s leading insurers. It’s because of QBE’s experience, security and strength – as well as its prompt, efficient and friendly claims service – that we’ve made it our general insurance provider. This partnership enables us to deliver Woolworths Employees’ Credit Union members quality and value in insurance products, with the added convenience of having everything under the same roof.

Cover Options include:

You have a range of cover options, depending on your own circumstances and those of others likely to drive your car. Comprehensive This policy provides complete cover, regardless of the number of licensed drivers using the vehicle. It protects you against theft, fire and damage to your car, as well as damage you may cause to another person’s car or property. 30+ Plus Nominated Driver Cover If you are a more experienced driver 30 years of age or over, and others under 30 won’t be driving the car, you can nominate two drivers who are 30 years of age or over and take out a full comprehensive policy at a discounted price Third Party Only This provides cover for damage you may cause to another person’s car or property, but does not cover your own car. Uninsured Driver Protection Cover is included under this policy. Third Party Fire & Theft This is an extension of the Third Party Only Policy, which provides cover if your car is stolen or damaged due to fire.

For new cars, a new car replacement option:

Insure your brand new car with QBE within 2 years of purchase, and if it’s written off within the first four years of ownership or 100,000kms, whichever comes first, it’ll be replaced with a new one (conditions apply).
