Third Party Fire and Theft

Third Party Fire and Theft car insurance is our mid-range car insurance cover.

It’s designed for drivers who don’t want comprehensive car insurance but need to go beyond basic benefits. Third Party Fire and Theft car insurance is often chosen by Australians who own older cars of lower value.

This simple car insurance gives you a soft landing with cover for accidental damage you cause with your car to other people’s vehicles or property. It also protects you against theft or fire damage to your car.

Our Exclusive Driver discount applies here too, as do our other valuable discounts.
