Classic car insurance has many similarities with comprehensive car insurance and can include such benefits for owners as:

  • Agreed value cover
  • Recovery against third party
  • Modifications cover
  • Choice of a specific repairer in the event of damage
  • Lay up cover
  • Salvage.

While the exact definition of a ‘classic car’ varies in different countries, any older vehicle that has enough historical value and appeal to be collectible can be considered a classic car. Depending on the vehicle’s age, it can be additionally classed an Antique, a Veteran, a Vintage or a Post-Vintage car.

It’s worth noting that some insurers will only deem your vehicle a classic car if you don’t take it out on the road at all, or only use it for events like enthusiast club rallies. Therefore it is worth looking for a provider specialising in classic cars, particularly if you drive yours on a daily basis. It also pays to seek out specific information in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) before you commit to buy a classic car insurance policy.
