  • Car insurance policy types explained

    It can sometimes be confusing trying to understand just what kind of car insurance you need. Essentially, there are three types of car insurance required by law. And you can choose between fully comprehensive, third-party and third-party fire and theft – the minimum cover being third party. Here we’ll explain the difference between these types of cover.


    Taking out third-party only will insure you against damage to other vehicles, people or property that you might harm in an accident that was your fault. But, it doesn’t cover your own car, or you. So, say if you were to crash into someone’s property, third-party insurance would cover the repair of the building, but not your car.

    Third-Party, Fire and Theft

    Third-party, fire and theft does all of the above, but it also protects your car if it was damaged due to a fire or stolen.

    Fully Comprehensive insurance

    This covers everything that third-party and third-party fire and theft does, but, it also covers you for many more eventualities and includes both you and your vehicle. So, if you were to be in an accident that was your fault, fully comprehensive cover would protect you from any third-party claims, and any repairs to your car including the value of it if it’s written off.
