    What is fully comprehensive car insurance?

    Comprehensive insurance (or 'fully comp') is the highest level of cover you can get for your car. It also covers you for damage caused to your vehicle, including accidents, theft, vandalism, damage caused by animals, fire, and natural disasters such as flooding.

    You can also enhance your policy with add-ons for extra peace of mind, such as breakdown cover or legal assistance. However, for many drivers, comprehensive insurance is the most complete way to insure a car.

    What comprehensive insurance does not cover

    Contrary to what many people believe, a fully comprehensive insurance policy does not cover you to drive another person’s car. The general rule is that if you drive someone else’s car regularly, then you should be named on their policy. Some policies offer limited cover to drive other cars in an emergency situation.

    For example, if a friend had an accident and they were unable to drive and you wanted to drive them to the hospital - you might be allowed if they give you permission and you meet certain criteria. However, if you have an accident en route, the level of cover is generally third party only. Clearly, there’s a lot to consider. So, it's best to check your policy document, schedule or certificate to be sure of your cover.

    Is comprehensive insurance more expensive than other policy types?

    Not necessarily, that depends on your personal circumstances, the level of cover you need, the type of car you drive, plus your average mileage and usage. Third party, fire and theft might initially offer savings in the short term; however, it could also work out more expensive in the long term. If you’re looking to save money by choosing a less expensive cover option, we have a guide that explains how to reduce your car insurance costs.

    While third party, fire, and theft may be cheaper initially, in the event of an accident, assess whether you’re happy to be without a car for an extended period of time. Ask yourself whether you can afford to pay for another vehicle. If that isn’t the case, MORE THAN comprehensive insurance could save you a great deal of hassle and money.
