GIO Comprehensive Car Insurance provides cover for accidental damage to your car caused by collision with an animal, such as a kangaroo or wallaby (subject to the conditions and exclusions of your policy) . You will be insured up to the 'amount covered' of your car, or your car's 'market value’ (if you have chosen this option), which will be listed on your Certificate of Insurance.
If you’re a Third Party Property Damage or Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance policy holder, you won’t be covered for any damage to your vehicle. However, if you or your passenger is injured in an accident with wildlife, CTP Insurance may cover your medical expenses. Exclusions apply. Please read your PDS for more information.
If you’re in an at-fault accident, the level of cover you’ll receive and whether you’ll be able to make a claim can depend on your level of insurance. Read your PDS for conditions and exclusions. Generally, if you have:
