All about car insurance

  • Why do I need car insurance?

    While nobody ever wants to think about accidents on the road, sadly it's a fact that sometimes they can happen completely unexpectedly. By insuring yourself and your car, you can benefit from having the peace of mind that if you should ever run into any trouble, you'll have the financial protection in place to cover any accidental damage.

    Insuring your car is a legal requirement for all motorists. In fact, having a vehicle on the road without valid insurance is a highly punishable offence. Unless your car is registered with a Statutory Off Road Notice (or SORN), you'll need to make sure you have an insurance policy in place.

    The cost of your insurance premium will vary from others depending on certain factors. These will generally include the type of car, how old the car is, what you use it for, your driving history, info of any additional drivers and even where you live.

    When you look for a car insurance policy with Arkwright, we can use this information to provide you with the best possible quote for a car insurance policy that's specific to you and your needs.

  • Types of insurance policy

    There are three main types of insurance policies for you to choose from when looking for the best car insurance:

    Third-party only cover: This is the minimum legal requirement for any car insurance policy and is generally the least expensive. A third-party only (or TPO) policy covers you for any injury or damage to another person or their property if you end up in an accident. However, you won't be able to make a claim for any injury or damage to yourself or your own property.

    Third-party, fire & theft cover: This will insure you for any third party damage as a TPO policy outlined above. However, you also benefit from additional cover if your car gets stolen or damaged in an unexpected fire. Your TPFT policy will generally protect you against any significant financial loss you would otherwise face when repairing or replacing your car.

    Comprehensive cover: This gives you the most wide-ranging cover, including the above cover of a TPFT policy. On top of this, you'll be able to make a claim if you're injured in an accident, for damage to your vehicle and even windscreen repairs or replacements. You may be able to receive a courtesy or replacement car if yours is under repair or destroyed.

    Comprehensive policies are generally a bit more expensive, but they offer complete peace of mind that virtually everything will be covered if the worst should happen.

  • Temporary cover also available

    Most car insurance policies are offered on a 12-month period. However, for drivers needing cover on a more temporary or flexible basis, we can provide a short-term cover policy that matches your needs.

    This is useful if you need to insure a loaned or hired car for a fixed period of time, ranging from one day to several months. Through a temporary car insurance policy, we can make it possible for you to insure a car only for as long as it's needed.
