Question Car Insurance In Aus!

Hello

Can anybody give me any info on Aussie Car Insurance?

I'm a brit born aussie citizen and am returning to Aus next month (woo hoo).

I unfortunately had a car accident last month (great timing!!) and the insurance companies are currently battling it out as to who's at fault.

I was just wondering if I'm not found at fault if I can carry my No Claims Bonus across to Aus? Alternatively if I am found to be at fault if your UK history/record is held against you in Aus??

I have both a UK and Australian drivers licence if that makes any difference??

Any advice would be gratefully received!!....

We arranged our insurance through AAMI and they accepted my no claims discount from the UK. All I needed was a letter from my UK insurer stating level of no claims I had and length of time I had held that for

Hi,

We signed up with RACV and got the full no claims. They didn't ask for proof. I assume they don't pay out if you have falsely claimed the full no-claims (i.e. they check your history if you have an accident).

They asked about all incidents in the last 5 years - I think. They only thing I had was a claim for a broken windscreen which they said was okay.

Regards
Alistair
