Car Insurance

Life without your car can be pretty inconvenient. Car insurance can help you get back on the road if your vehicle is damaged or stolen. Comprehensive car insurance can pay for repairs to your vehicle as well as protect you financially against the cost of damage to someone else's vehicle and property when you are at fault.

third-party-fire-theft

third-party

    Women’s car insurance

    If you're female and looking for car insurance, you're in a good position. Car insurance premiums tend to be cheaper for women. While women are already at an advantage when it comes to taking out car insurance, there are other ways to help keep your cover affordable.

    Pay as you drive car insurance

    If you don't use your car very much, a Pay as You Drive (or Pay as You Go) may be a cover option that suits. This type of policy offers a more flexible approach to car insurance than comprehensive insurance, as you only pay for the kilometres you usually drive, but you still get the same cover as traditional comprehensive car insurance.

    Comprehensive car insurance
