Buying an electric car could be a great way to do your bit for the environment – and you could possibly also save some cash. Electric and hybrid vehicles can be more expensive to buy at first, but they could save you money down the road. Compared to a petrol or diesel vehicle, an electric car could be cheaper when it comes to fuel, tax and maintenance.

Here at Tesco Bank we have some great benefits for drivers of electric cars.

  • A range of standard features covering accidental injury loss or damage
  • Round-the-clock assistance from our UK team

      About Tesco Bank motor insurance

      With our comprehensive Car Insurance, you get cover for your vehicle that includes:

        Uninsured driver promise

        Our cover comes with peace of mind that if your car is hit by an uninsured driver, you won't be penalised for it. As soon as we validate the details of the incident (including the other vehicle's make, model and registration number), your no claims discount will be reinstated and your excess will be refunded to you. Terms apply

          Small courtesy car

          You'll get a small courtesy car to help you keep going while yours is being repaired following a claim. This might not be an electric or hybrid vehicle. There are a few exclusions so please check these. Check exclusions

            Fire and theft cover

            We'll pay for loss or damage to the car caused by fire, theft or attempted theft.

              Windscreen cover

              A chipped windscreen doesn’t have to spoil your day. We'll pay for the cost of repairing or replacing your broken or chipped windscreen or windows. We'll also pay for any scratching to the paintwork that might have been caused by broken glass from the windscreen or windows.

                Replacement child car seat

                We will replace any child seats that are fitted to the car at the time of an incident, even if you can't see any damage. You can't be too careful with your precious cargo. £300 limit applies from 25 May 2019.

                  In-car entertainment equipment cover

                  This includes any stereo, sat nav, telephone and entertainment equipment, that are permanently fitted to your car.

                    UK cover extended to EU for up to 90 days

                    With our Car Insurance, you can drive away on holiday to the EU. No need to pay extra. Your cover is extended to any EU country for a total of 90 days within the period of your insurance as long as you are a UK resident. Great for a last-minute escape.

                    All cover details, exclusions, excesses, monetary limits and terms are clearly laid out in our Car Insurance policy booklets. See our policy booklets

                      Our comprehensive Car Insurance includes cover for you and your passengers as standard.

                        24 hour accident helpline

                        Accidents don't just happen between 9 and 5. That's why our UK-based accident helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

                          Cover for personal possessions

                          Our Car Insurance isn't just about the car. The things inside it matter too. So your personal possessions are covered up to the value of £200 if they're lost or damaged in the car following an accident.

                            Medical expenses

                            If you or your passengers are involved in an accident in the car, we'll pay up to £100 in medical expenses to treat each injured person.

                              Personal accident cover

                              Our Car Insurance provides up to £5,000 compensation for serious injury to you or your partner whilst travelling by car.

                                Making sure you get there

                                You can claim up to £150 towards any costs you might have incurred getting to your planned destination (or home) if you're involved in an incident that results in a valid claim.

                                  And for an extra charge, you can get even more peace of mind with our optional add-ons.

                                    Breakdown cover

                                    Don't be left stranded if your car breaks down. Add Breakdown Cover provided by RAC to your Car Insurance policy.

                                      If you need seven seats for your family or space in the back for your dog, a small courtesy car might not cut it. Add this cover and you’ll get a car that’s similar in size to your usual one, but this might not be an electric or hybrid vehicle. It’ll be yours for up to 28 days when your car is out of action, even if it’s deemed unrepairable by the approved repair network.

If you, or any named driver, are hurt in an accident while driving the insured car, or whilst the policyholder is entering or exiting the vehicle, regardless of whether the accident is your fault or not, this cover gives you financial support when you need it most. Providing a lump sum payment, up to a maximum specified limit, to help support rehabilitation, counselling or expense in the event of a serious injury or death.
