Types of car insurance with 1st for Women
1st for Women offers a selection of car insurance policies to choose from depending on your needs and budget.
Comprehensive car insurance is 1st for Women’s top level of cover and includes a broader range of benefits than third party insurances. It covers all bases and has some optional extras for those looking for further peace of mind. This policy covers things like:
- Accident repair costs for your car as well as any third party’s property
- Storm, flood, and hail damage
- Theft, as well as damage inflicted during attempted thefts
- Legal liability cover in the event of an incident where you’re at fault
- Emergency transport and accommodation (limits apply)
- Cover for damaged personal effects inside the car during an accident (limits apply)
- A hire car if your car is stolen or damaged in a no-fault accident
- New car replacement if your brand-new vehicle is written off within a year of the original registration date or 20,000 kilometres, whichever is earlier.
Third Party Property, Fire & Theft
This level of cover provides the essentials plus a little extra and includes the following benefits:
- Cover for damage caused by uninsured drivers (to a limited amount and where the uninsured driver is identified)
- Your liability should you cause accidental damage to another person’s vehicle or property
- Cover for damage or loss from fire or theft (but not attempted theft)
- A hire car if your car is stolen (limits apply).
However, it does not cover any repair or replacement costs to your car if you are at fault (or no one is identified as at fault) in an incident.
Third Party Property Only
For customers wanting an affordable, basic, no-frills policy, Third Party Property Only insurance from 1st for Women may be for you. It covers:
- Any damage you cause to another person’s car or property in an accident
- Damage or loss (for a limited amount) to your vehicle caused by an uninsured (and identified) driver.
Once again, you are not covered for damage to your car if you’re at fault (or no one is identified as at fault) in an incident.
1st for Women also offers valuable optional extras that you can add to your policy for a tailored insurance experience, including:
- At-fault accident hire car benefit (Comprehensive only)
- Reduced window glass excess (Comprehensive only)
- Restricted driver age discounts
- Variable excess so you can choose to pay a higher or lower premium (Comprehensive only)
