What is car insurance?
A car insurance policy protects you as a car owner or driver against liability in the event of a road accident that causes injury to a third party or damage to their property. Some policies also cover damage to the motorist’s own vehicle.
Once you have purchased a car insurance policy, you’ll receive an insurance disc and certificate. Your disc must be visible and on display in your car.
Third-party car insurance cover is compulsory in Ireland.
How car insurance works?
In Ireland, there are 3 types of motor insurance available; Third-Party Insurance, Third-Party Fire & Theft and Comprehensive Insurance. Your premium is a monthly or annual payment that keeps your policy active. Driving with an inactive policy or with no insurance at all can result in a fine, penalty points, and in some cases, imprisonment.
Car Insurers tend to offer lower or higher premiums for certain drivers. If you fit into one of these categories, we’ll be able to find a suitable fit. Some factors can affect your premium such as your age or in the event that you have penalty points, which can be viewed in our FAQ section below.
