Motor insurance can cover your motor vehicle against accidental damage and theft. It can also protect you from the financial costs of repairing or replacing another person’s vehicle in an accident where you’re at fault. With a motor insurance policy, you can generally choose to insure your car for an agreed amount, or for the market value of your vehicle.
If your car is damaged in an accident where you’re at fault, having comprehensive motor insurance helps to pay for repairs – or can replace it all together if your car is written off. If your car is stolen, comprehensive motor insurance can pay you the agreed or market value, so you can buy another car. Third party property damage (TPPD) insurance – can cover the costs you may be liable to pay if you are at fault and damage or write off someone else’s car – is also available as a standalone policy.

On her way home from work, Sylvia was involved in a minor accident with a SUV, which was her fault. While the other car had a minor scratch, her car had some serious damage.
After pulling over, Sylvia contacted her insurance broker who took some details and arranged for her car to be towed and assessed. Because her policy also contained a rental car inclusion, they helped Sylvia arrange a hire car so that she could get to work while her car was off the road.
An assessor contacted her the next day, letting her know that her car could be fixed and that her insurance would cover the cost. They arranged to have it repaired at her smash repairer of choice. While she was waiting for her car to be repaired, Sylvia had access to the rental car – with the cost also covered by her policy.
