        Helpful information about car insurance

        What does comprehensive car insurance cover?

        Comprehensive car insurance covers you for accidental damage to your car, and loss by fire or theft. It also gives you cover for damage you cause to other people's property and injury to other people.

          What’s the difference between comprehensive and third party cover?

          Third-party cover is the lowest level of insurance you can get. You’re covered for damage you cause to other people's property and injury to other people – but any damage to your own car isn't covered. A comprehensive policy covers damage to your car too.
