3 You can save up to 25% is a combination of three discounts: save up to 10% on your first year’s premium for buying a new policy online, save up to 10% Safe Driver Discount for eligible drivers and save up to 5.8% when selecting the Named Driver Option and listing all your drivers on the policy. These discounts do not apply to Third Party Property Damage policies. If you choose to reduce your premium by naming drivers on your policy, an unnamed driver will incur a $2,500 excess (this replaces the basic and all other excesses where applicable). Minimum premiums may apply. Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and only apply to the extent any minimum premium is not reached. If you are eligible for more than one, we also apply each of them in a predetermined order to the premium (excluding taxes and government charges) as reduced by any prior applied discounts/entitlements. Any online discount offered is applied to our standard rates (excluding optional covers). The online discount applies to new Comprehensive Motor Insurance policies only in the first year (unless stated otherwise). Promotional or other discounts may apply from time to time for customers who apply for insurance via other methods. The Safe Driver Discount applies to eligible Comprehensive Motor Insurance policies only. Any discount entitlement is determined by the insurance and driving histories of all drivers on the policy and the number of claims made by them.
