What is car insurance?
Car insurance provides financial protection in the event of an incident which causes damage to your vehicle. Depending on the level of insurance, it may cover the cost if your car is vandalised or stolen.

Many factors are considered when you apply for insurance, including the make and model of your car, your age, where you keep it and whether you have any motoring convictions.

Why do I need car insurance?
Car insurance is required by law, unless you have registered your vehicle as being off the road.

The minimum level of insurance is third party only, which provides cover if you injure other drivers, passengers or pedestrians, or cause damage to someone else’s property. Comprehensive cover provides further financial protection in case your car is damaged or stolen.

What types of car insurance are available?
You have three types of car insurance to choose from – third party, third party, fire and theft, and comprehensive.

Third party is the minimum cover required by law. It provides cover for injury to others or damage caused to their vehicle or property, but does not provide cover for damage to your vehicle.
Third party, fire and theft provides the same cover as third party, while also providing cover in the event of your car being stolen or damaged by fire.
Comprehensive is the highest level of insurance available. Cover is provided for injuries to others, theft, vandalism or accidental damage to your car.
To find out more you can read our article on the different types of car insurance or else you can compare our levels of cover.

Benefits of AA insurance

Name Driver No Claims Discount: if you have just acquired your AA car insurance, then you can have access to their no-clams discount. How can you qualify for it? Let’s see the requirements:

You must be 25 years old or older than that.

You must be free of conviction during the past five years.

You must be a named driver on AA car insurance with at least two years claims-free driving. Moreover, you must not have any fault claims.

This no-clams discount will depend on how long you have held a full license and how long you have been a named driver. Which means that once you have held your policy with AA for at least a year, you are able to protect your no-claims discount?

Uninsured Driver Promise: If you had an accident on the road because of the traffic, you will need to pay a lot for it, even though it is not your fault. This is why AA introduced the Uninsured Driver Promise. With this benefit, the driver won’t lose its no-claims discount if its car is hit by someone who is not insured at all. Moreover, you won’t have to pay an excess.

How does it work? The company just needs to establish that you are not accountable for the accident and then you will need to tell them the model, the registration number and the make of the other vehicle.

How much money does it cost? It’s free to every driver that has acquired the comprehensive insurance.

Optional extras to increase your insurance
