Our car insurance policy focuses on what matters to you. With Aviva Car Insurance you get excellent cover and many great benefits as standard.
The following is only an overview of the features and benefits available to you at Aviva. Please download our car insurance policy document for the complete details on all our car insurance benefits. It also sets out the terms and conditions of cover. The policy schedule shows your cover and any extra benefits or amendments that may apply.
Breakdown Rescue Cover
Our Breakdown Rescue cover will save the day if you have a breakdown emergency anywhere in Ireland, England, Scotland or Wales. It covers the following types of breakdown:
- Mechanical breakdown
- Fire, theft, attempted theft or malicious damage
- Punctures you need help with to fix
- Wheel replacement
- Lost or stolen keys
- Keys broken in locks or locked in your car
All you need to do is call us at 1800 44 88 88 - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We will provide you with roadside and driveway assistance. If you have had an accident, we will provide towing cover. If your car has been stolen and is not recovered within 24 hours, we will provide a replacement car for up to five days or until your car is recovered - whichever is sooner.
Driving Other Cars
We will automatically provide you with Third Party cover when you drive a car someone else owns, providing you hold a current full EU or Irish driving licence. This cover is only available to you, the policyholder, and not to any named drivers on your policy.
Unlimited Windscreen Cover
Unlimited Windscreen Cover is standard on all Comprehensive car insurance policies when you use our partners Mr. Windscreen or Autoglass. If your policy is Third Party Fire & Theft then you will have to pay an extra premium for this cover.
Automatic Temporary Cover
You are automatically covered on any private car of up to 2,000cc loaned to you or to any other driver covered on your policy for up to seven days while your car is being serviced or repaired by a registered garage or vehicle repairer. This cover only applies to policyholders who qualify for 'Driving of other cars' cover.
With Aviva Car Insurance, you get a Courtesy Car while your car is at one of Aviva’s Aligned Repairers - for up to 7 days if your car is being repaired or 10 days in the event your car is a write-off.
Replacement Lock Cover
If the vehicle keys or lock transmitter of your vehicle are lost or stolen, we will pay for the cost of replacing:
- The door locks and boot lock
- The ignition steering lock
- The lock transmitter and central-locking interface
We will not take off the excess and your no-claims discount will not be affected.
Personal Belongings Cover
We will pay up to €150 for any one event of damage to or loss of personal belongings in your car caused by fire, accident or theft. Making a claim under Personal Belongings cover will not affect your no-claims discount.
Car Phone and Radio Cover
We will pay up to €650 or 5% of the current market value of the car - whichever is less – for damage to or loss of your car phone or audio equipment.
Fire Brigade Charges up to €1000
We will pay for charges made by a fire authority to:
- Control or put out a fire in your car
- Remove the driver or passengers from your car using cutting equipment
