Comprehensive vs third party, fire and theft
There are two main types of car insurance cover; third party, fire and theft or comprehensive. The kind of car insurance you choose will depend on what level of cover you want for your car.
What is comprehensive?
Comprehensive car insurance will protect you for everything covered under third party, fire and theft along with any windscreen or accidental damage.
What is third party, fire and theft?
Third party, fire and theft insurance will cover you if your car is damaged by theft or attempted theft, stolen, or damaged by fire. In the event of an accident, it will cover claims made against you by other people for personal injury or damage to their property.
You get to decide what to include in your car insurance policy. Choose from a range of options including:
Protect Your No Claims Discount
Your no claims discount has a big impact on the price of your car insurance. So why not protect it in case you have to make a claim?
JourneyWise Accident Cover
This optional extra covers you or a family member in case of accidental injury while getting in and out of a private car or any train, taxi, ship, boat, hovercraft or airplane.
