More about Comprehensive Car Insurance

With suitable cover, here are four situations you won’t have to worry about:

  1. You don’t stop quickly enough and hit the car in front.

As the driver, you may need to make a claim and depending on the damage you could be up for a large bill. Comprehensive car insurance provides cover for third party damage.

  1. Someone has deliberately vandalised your car.

Whether it’s been scratched with a key or someone has smashed your windscreen, comprehensive car insurance could cover you for this. Give your insurance provider a buzz and they’ll talk you through what to do.

  1. Your car has been stolen.

Without the right insurance there is little you can do if someone steals your car; your investment could well be gone. Comprehensive car insurance covers you for theft.

  1. A storm has damaged your car.

No matter how good a driver you are, you can’t control the weather. A falling branch or hail could severely damage your car. Comprehensive car insurance provides cover for costs associated with weather damage.

Taking out comprehensive car insurance is a personal choice. It may cost a little extra, but in the event of an accident, it could save you money.
