Choose a CTP insurer

To help you choose a CTP insurer, the CTP Regulator provides customer service ratings on each insurer. These are based on customer surveys of their handling of claims during the previous 6 months.

While insurers set their own premiums, the regulator sets a minimum and maximum allowable premium.

Insurers are allowed to offer incentives, such as reward programs, loyalty schemes or gift cards. They may bundle CTP insurance with, for example, household or comprehensive vehicle insurance.

Same coverage

Under the scheme, all 5 approved insurers provide the same CTP insurance coverage. If you are injured in a road accident involving your vehicle, you can claim the same available compensation whoever your insurer.
