What level of cover do I need?

We offer three main levels of car insurance options that cover you for accident and damage costs.

Comprehensive car insurance

This is the highest level of insurance you can buy. It includes third party, fire & theft and covers the cost of repairing or replacing your car if it's involved in an accident or damaged maliciously. Excluding Essential tier, it comes with extra benefits like windscreen cover and extended cover for driving outside the UK.

Third party, fire and theft

As well as paying out to a third party if you're involved in an incident, this level of cover protects your car from damage caused by fire or theft. However, it doesn't cover the cost if your car's damaged in another way, such as a crash.

Third party only

This is the most basic level of cover required by law. If you're involved in an accident, we'll pay out the other driver involved but you won't be able to claim for damage to your car.

How we calculate your car insurance cost

We use multiple factors to calculate car insurance prices. We constantly check the prices we charge to offer you the best car insurance premium, but prices also fluctuate depending on the market. Here are a few factors:

  • Your information – Generally, the older you are and the longer you've been driving means you'll have cheaper premiums than a younger or newer driver.
  • Where you live – We check the number of claims in your area and whether they're due to things like theft, damage or volume of traffic.
  • The car you insure – We use our insurance groups and claims history of your car make and model. Find out more about car insurance groups and how they're calculated.
  • Your driving habits – The more you drive, the more likely you'll be involved in an accident. This is also why commuters are likely to have a higher premium.
  • Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) – By law, we add a 12% tax to your car insurance premium. Read more about why we do this here.

Check our average premium costs across these factors on our Car Insurance Price Index.
