What type of car insurance do I need?

With the various types of car insurance policies to choose from, it can be difficult to understand which one is right for you.

Comprehensive insurance (also sometimes known as “fully comp”) is the best type of policy because it covers not only other people and their vehicles, but your own vehicle too. Third-party only covers just other people, and third party, fire and theft also covers your car if it’s stolen or catches fire.

How To Get Cheaper Car Insurance

It’s a question we get asked a lot - “how can I reduce my car insurance?”. Below, you can find a few simple tips and tricks that could help.

  1. Park your car in a safe place - parking your vehicle on a private driveway or locked car park could help to reduce your insurance premium
  2. Check your mileage is correct - you are required to tell your insurance provider how many kilometres you drive each year. Check this figure is correct and that you haven’t overestimated it.
  3. Pay annually, not monthly - paying for your insurance monthly can add interest, so annual insurance can be slightly cheaper
  4. Change your car - if you’re due an upgrade, changing your car could help you to get cheaper car insurance. Vehicles that are cheaper to insure are usually those that have lower power, so do your research.
  5. Add a named driver - Adding a named driver can sometimes actually bring your insurance down, so try adding a parent or other family member to your policy.
  6. Compare prices for the best deals - Comparing car insurance quotes with Chill means you'll only have to enter your details once to see quotes from multiple insurers, saving you time and money.
