Find the right choice of cover for you

There are two types of car insurance cover: Comprehensive insurance or Third Party, Fire and Theft insurance. But how do you choose between them? Well, it depends on what level of cover you want. 

What is comprehensive cover?

Comprehensive insurance is as its name suggests, comprehensive. With this type of cover, you'll be protected against windscreen or accidental damage – in addition to everything covered by Third Party, Fire and Theft.

What is third party, fire and theft?

Third Party, Fire and Theft covers damage to your car by theft, attempted theft, or fire – and if your car is stolen. In the event of an accident, it covers claims made against you by other people too e.g., for a personal injury or damage to their property.
