Question: What is the difference between these three forms of car insurance cover?

Answer: Third Party Cover is the minimum insurance cover required by the law and offers protection only for damages to the other cars and people in the unhappy event of an accident.

Third Party Fire and Theft offers the same basic cover required by the law and in addition the vehicle you drive will also have insurance cover for it catching fire or being stolen.

Comprehensive Car Insurance Cover will include both the previous forms of cover and in addition the vehicle itself will be insured against damage. Comprehensive Insurance can vary widely amongst car insurance providers and can include or exclude many incidental costs and expenses so always check around and consider quotations for car insurance carefully.

Question: Should I buy the cheapest car insurance I can find?

Answer: Car insurance quotations from the many insurers you will discover listed at Sumps will invariably vary from one to another. It is in this variation that value for money in the car insurance market and individual products will be found. What I'm trying to say, is, don't rush to purchase the cheapest car insurance you find. Firstly, make sure that the car insurance you are considering provides the level of cover you need. Beyond this minimum you should look at what is included in the car insurance offer. For instance, is a courtesy car available for your use in the event of an accident and for how long? or, are you covered for legal expenses should you have to attend court as a result of an accident? - these kind of benefits may or may not be included in the car insurance policy you are offered online, and perhaps, if you paid just a few pounds more for your policy you would get the extra insurance benefits. Please also, take time to view the SUMPS Terms of Use and Disclaimer.
