Car Insurance – Tasmania
With over 440,000 registered vehicles, Tasmania - despite its relatively small size - has nearly three times as many cars on the road as the Northern Territory. In 2014 it boasted 861 vehicles per 1000 people – a vehicle-per-population ratio higher than anywhere else in Australia. Since 2009, it has also averaged the second highest percentage increase in motorcycle registrations (34.5%) in the country, behind Western Australia1. And if you're in need of a lift to work, there's good news: recent research indicates that Hobart residents are more inclined to drop someone at work than drivers in other capital cities2.
Tasmania is an ideal place for scenic driving, with plenty to see and do within a reasonable distance of the main population centres. But unfortunately, car accidents do happen, with Tasmanian drivers involved in around 43 traffic fatalities and close to 300 serious road-related injuries per year (averaged over the past ten years)3. Having your vehicle properly insured is as important as ever, and that's where Budget Direct can help.
