Car insurance types

There are 3 types of cover for car insurance and these consist of:

This is the most basic of covers for car insurance and covers you for third party bodily injury and damage to third party property.

This covers all of the above plus fire and theft cover.

Comprehensive

This insurance covers both of the above plus accidental damage to your car.

Protected no claims bonus on my car insurance

If you have maximum no claims bonus you can opt to protect this so that in the event of a fault claim fire or theft on your car insurance, your no claims bonus will remain intact. Depending on the insurer, this may be 2 fault claims in a period of 5 years or 1 fault claim per annual period of insurance.

Most comprehensive car insurance policies will automatically include personal accident cover, however the level of cover will vary dependant on the insurer. There are exclusions to this section of the policy if you are unsure of cover on your car insurance please ask one of our advisors for assistance.
