Cover on the things that matter
With regards to insurance, you get to choose what you wish to be protected against. The company who provides the insurance then calculates the risk in which the said events can happen and they will determine the price you have to pay (also known as a premium).
We offer competitive rates on car insurance, sickness and accident cover, GAP or Guaranteed Asset Protection Cover and Warranties.
We make sure you are with our experienced brokers who can evaluate your budget and available expenditure. They take into account insurance cover, licensing, fuel and all other expenses when buying a new or used car so you don’t have to.
Here’s How Insurance Works
There are three main steps in securing insurance:
- Select a policy – Insurance policies are documents which list the things that you are or aren’t protected against. For instance, a travel insurance policy may state that it covers your medical expenses in case you get into an accident that causes injury abroad.
- Pay the premium – The premium is the total amount that you have to pay every month or year (or sometimes just a single time) to secure the insurance. This amount will depend on the calculated risk for the value of the events being insured. For example, inexperienced drivers may get into an accident more, so car insurance for them will cost more – this can go higher the more expensive the car being insured is – since its repairs will most likely cost more.
- Make a claim – If an event that you are protected against happens while being covered by the policy, it is possible for you to make a claim on your insurance. What you do is to tell the insurance company what happened and they will check if it’s covered under their stated policy. If the claim meets their standards, then you get to receive payment as agreed.
Do I Need Insurance?
There are many types of insurance available today – which can cover nearly anything, from car accidents to your house and even your pets.
Some types of insurance are compulsory – such as not being able to drive a car without even a basic form of car insurance or not being allowed to secure a mortgage without first having building insurance.
Once compulsory insurances have been settled, the next important thing to do is to keep you and your family protected. The kind of insurance you’re going to need will depend on what you want to keep safe.
Things to Keep in Mind
· When travelling abroad, it’s important to get travel insurance so you can get assistance in paying for medical bills and other costs in case you get sick or injured.
· If you have children, what’s going to happen to them if you died unexpectedly? Having life insurance can help them get through such a dire ordeal by providing for them financially.
· If you’re paying up a major mortgage, what happens in case you become too sick to continue working? With income protection insurance, you can get to cover your payments even if you cannot work for some time.
Consider these things and ask your preferred insurance company what their prices are. You can then make an educated decision on what type of insurance you need and which one you can afford.
Taking out car insurance if you’ve recently purchased a new or used car, whether it was with a loan or not, is a necessity. Especially in the case of a secured loan, we highly recommend getting car insurance to prevent any unforeseen events.
