CTP Insurance in South Australia

QBE will join three other private insurers in providing CTP insurance in South Australia from 1 July 2016. CTP is paid when you register your vehicle in SA and provides compensation to victims of motor accidents where the owner or driver of a South Australian registered car or vehicle is at fault. CTP provides compensation to cover reasonable treatment costs and other related expenses for other drivers, passengers, cyclists, pedestrians and road users.

Privacy

QBE will use personal information submitted during registration to provide you with your CTP insurance policy. Your information will not be disclosed to any third party except where permitted or required by law. QBE is committed to ensuring the safety of your personal information and full details including how to access the information we hold about you and how to make a complaint are included in the QBE Privacy Policy.

Premiums

Your CTP Insurance premium is paid as part of your vehicle registration as set by the Regulator.
