Pay as You Drive is changing

Same great cover, more optional extras

If you already have a Real Pay As You Drive insurance policy, then we have some exciting news. We’ve created a new generation of Pay As You Drive cover that gives you the choice of adding a much broader range of optional extras to your cover.

Benefits of our new generation Pay As You Drive:

  • A great range of optional extras, including: Roadside Assistance; Pet cover#; Bicycle cover#; 24 month new car replacement cover if your car is a total loss and more.
  • Cover for customers who plan to drive as little as 1000km a year with the same flexibility to ‘top up’ your kilometre range if needed (for an additional premium).
  • The same great comprehensive car insurance where you only pay for the kilometres you plan to drive, and benefit from guaranteed repairs by approved repairers, emergency towing, personal property cover and more.

For full details of the new generation Pay as You Drive cover, please read the Product Disclosure Statement.

What this means for current Real Pay As You Drive customers:

If you are currently insured under a Real Pay As You Drive policy, you will remain covered by your current policy until your policy ends, and still receive the same great quality comprehensive cover, and only pay for the kilometres you drive.

If your Pay as You Drive policy expires we may offer a renewal of your existing Real Pay As You Drive cover. This means you will not have access to the new great range of optional extras available on our new generation Pay As You Drive cover. However, if you would like to access the benefits of our new generation cover, please follow the instructions below.

Switch to our new generation Pay As You Drive cover

If you would like to switch to our new generation Pay As You Drive cover, you will need to cancel your current Real Pay As You Drive policy, and apply for a new Pay as You Drive policy with our new generation cover. It’s easy to do this with one phone call to our Customer Care team on 13 19 48. You can do this at any time and do not have to wait until your current policy is due for renewal.

Please be aware that you will not be able to ‘roll over’ your existing kilometres to our new cover, but we will gladly refund you the pro rata premium for any unused kilometres on your current Pay as You Dive policy (if any).

So if you would like to benefit from our exciting new generation Pay As You Drive cover, or have any questions, simply call our team today on 13 19 48.

Otherwise, rest assured that as long as your policy is in operation you will continue to be covered by our great quality comprehensive cover from Real Pay As You Drive.

Great Customer Service, that’s what it boils down to. A real human being who can say ‘is everyone ok’ during a claim and calls us back to keep us up to date. That’s the difference! Your products are great but your people are outstanding!”

"I went online and had a look and it was cheaper than anyone else so I signed up on the spot. When I switched to Real I saved at least $300."

John Car Insurance customer

Daniel Car Insurance customer

"I could personally tailor my needs with their Build Your Own product.  I have saved about $100 a year insuring my car online with Real."

Matthew Car Insurance customer

"Paying my premium monthly is a big bonus for me 'cause I pay it at no extra cost so that works for me. I've saved $100s by switching to Real."

Bhavani Car Insurance customer

“Real Insurance seemed more genuine than competitors, focused on my family's needs not their own goals. They were easy to deal with, spoke plain English not Insurance-ese and even looked up details of my vehicle to advise which standard or extra features needed cover! Easiest insurance conversation ever!

Peter Car Insurance

"By switching to Real Insurance I saved over $30 a month which over the year was more than $350."

Sheena Car Insurance customer

"The nearest quote I got from several other competitiors was around the $1,200 mark. I just went for the insurance because it was a saving in excess of $400, I was really really happy"

Donna Car Insurance customer

"When I look for car insurance there are two things I look for, value for money and good customer service and Real had both of those."
