Choosing the Right Motor Insurance Cover

Whether you are newly licensed or a seasoned driver on the road, choosing the right level of motor insurance coverage is imperative. While of course having car insurance is a legal obligation for anyone who owns a vehicle, there are still three levels of cover to choose from with a number of factors to consider.

Are you somewhat undecided on which level of motor insurance cover is the most viable?

If so, then we encourage you to stick around while we take a look at 3 things you definitely need to consider when deciding between which level of motor insurance coverage would be most suitable for you.

1. Level of Coverage

As one may come to expect, the preliminary difference between third party (fire and theft) and comprehensive insurance falls within the level of coverage provided. While third party insurance only covers you against third party damages, a fully comprehensive cover will also cover you for your own damages. Many individuals tend to opt for a third party cover since it is perceivably the cheapest option that satisfies your legal obligation. However, even though you are paying a higher premium for a comprehensive cover, it might turn out to be cheaper in the long term.

2. Protection from Natural Disasters

Let’s be real, it doesn’t get much more unpredictable and unforgiving than Mother Nature. Whether it be a flood, an earthquake or a storm, it’s very possible that your vehicle would sustain some amount of damage from any of these unforeseen occurrences. However, with a fully comprehensive cover, you may have peace of mind knowing that those potential implications are covered in your policy.

3. Price

Although third party insurance is cheaper at first glance, it can still end up costing you more depending on the car you are driving. If you drive an old rust bucket of a car, it is likely that repairing it would be cheap and third party would ultimately be the more viable choice. However, if you happen to be driving an expensive car on the daily, any damages incurred would be rather costly to repair, in which case a comprehensive insurance is more suitable. Moreover, if our basic comprehensive cover doesn’t strike your fancy, you could always look into the possibility of customising your motor policy!
