How car insurance can help you have peace of mind and confidence when on the roads
Compare the Market’s General Manager of General Insurance, Adrian Taylor, notes that we can’t control everything, which is why car insurance can help provide real peace of mind for drivers.
“Car insurance is a financial safety net if things go wrong, and it can provide great peace of mind when you head out on the roads,” says Taylor.
Taylor notes that there is more than just financial compensation for other road users if something goes wrong, depending on what your policy includes.
“Comprehensive insurance covers your own vehicle against damages from other road users, which was the biggest cause for concern in our survey. It can also cover storm damage as well. Other benefits may include towing after an accident, emergency accommodation and a hire car.,” Taylor adds.
“Some insurance companies may also offer a discount on advanced driving courses, which can help provide confidence and prepare you to handle different situations on the road. Other insurers may instead discount your insurance if you’ve completed a recognised course. As always, contact your insurer and read through the policy documents for details on what’s covered, exclusions and terms to have a full understanding of your insurance.”
