There are a number of different car insurance policies around, but don’t worry, we’ll explain the differences and make it easy for you to pick the policy which suits you best.
Broadly speaking, there are three main types of car insurance: comprehensive, third-party and third party (fire and theft). Comprehensive cover will protect your car as well as other people’s property whereas a third-party policy will only cover damage you may cause to someone else’s property. Third party (fire and theft) provides the same level as standard third party, but will also cover you in case of damage caused by fire or if your car is stolen.
It’s also worth knowing that the typical car insurance policy lasts for 12 months and will need to be renewed each year. Your insurance might automatically renew when it’s about to expire, so remember to come back to comparethemarket.com to get the deal that’s right for you.
