Why greenslips are about to get cheaper for NSW drivers


Published on

CTP greenslips will be cheaper for NSW drivers from December 1, and car owners may even be entitled to a refund.

"The refund will apply to the owner of the vehicle as at midnight November 30 and will be calculated on a pro-rata basis. That is, the closer you purchase a policy to December 1, the greater your refund will be," says the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).

The owner of a a Class 1 car in the Sydney metro area, for example, with a current premium of $710 taken out in October, will be entitled to a $114 refund and a new premium of $554 from December 1.

The SIRA says all people who are entitled to a refund will be notified and given information on how refunds will be provided.

Motorists will start to receive their refunds in early 2018.
