Just as with other vehicle insurance, you have a couple of options to choose from when insuring your vintage or classic car.
What is Vintage Car Insurance?
Vintage and classic car insurance is needed, just like driving any modern car. There are many benefits to opting for specialised vintage insurance.
Vehicle insurance protects you as the owner or driver against liability in the unfortunate 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.
Third-party car insurance cover is a legal requirement in Ireland.
Your vintage car insurance will allow you to drive 5,000 kilometers a year. Perfect for Sunday drives and visits to classic car conventions.
How does Vintage & Classic Car Insurance Work?
If your car is 20+ years old, you are eligible to take out classic or vintage car insurance.
Your classic car should also be in excellent condition, be used as a second car and not exceed 5,000 kilometres a year.
Vintage car insurance is usually cheaper than standard vehicle insurance as it’s considered lower risk. You’re not expected to use your classic car as your main vehicle.
To get your vintage classic car insurance today, simply choose your level of cover and we’ll find the best provider and package for you.
There are some variables, benefits and extra info that are notable. For more information, visit our FAQs.
