What cover do I need for my Nissan Qashqai?

When it comes to insuring a Nissan Qashqai, you have three options to choose between:

  • Third-party insurance is the minimum the law requires, providing the lowest level of protection. This covers damage to another driver’s car if you cause an accident. The downside is that your own car won’t be protected.

    Contrary to what people often think, this isn’t always the cheapest type of insurance. Insurance providers assume those who go for third-party only are risky drivers, so can charge more for these policies.
  • Third party fire and theft offers the same cover as third party, only with added cover if your car is stolen or involved in a fire. It won’t protect you or your Nissan Qashqai if you caused the accident.
  • Comprehensive car insurance provides you with the most comprehensive cover and peace of mind. It means you and your car are both protected if you have an accident – regardless of who’s at fault.
