From theft to write-offs and even lost keys, you’ll be covered with us. Here’s what you’ll like about our comprehensive cover
- Windscreen repair and replacement
We’ll cover all the glass in your car under your windscreen cover. Plus, windscreen claims don’t affect your no claim discount.

NCD is a discount on your car insurance as a reward for being claim free. You’ll earn a year of NCD for every year you don’t make a claim. If you’re in an accident that isn’t your fault and we recover the cost from the liable driver’s insurer, your NCD won’t be affected.

If your car is vandalised and you have to claim, you’ll keep your no claim discount – you’ll just need to pay your excess.

What are the different car insurance cover levels?
There are three main levels of car insurance cover, summarised as follows:
Third party only
This is the minimum cover level required by law. So, if you’re involved in an accident that was your fault, we’ll pay out for any damage or injury you cause to other people and their property. But it doesn’t include cover for damage to your car. Third party cover is normally the cheapest cover available.
Third party, fire and theft
In addition to the cover provided by a third party only policy, this cover level protects your car from damage caused by fire,theft and attempted theft and claims from a third party if you’re involved in an incident.
This is the highest level of car insurance cover. It includes third party, fire and theft, and also covers the cost of repairing or replacing your car if it’s vandalised or involved in an accident. It includes additional cover benefits, such as windscreen damage, driving in Europe and, if you choose the option, a hire car to replace yours if it’s off the road due to vandalism or being involved in an accident.
