Car insurance FAQs

Does my car insurance cover windscreen replacement?

Excess-free windscreen/windshield and window glass chip repairs are automatically included in comprehensive car insurance cover. If you damage your windscreen or window glass and it can be repaired, you won’t need to pay an excess. If the damage can't be repaired and your windscreen needs to be replaced, your normal policy excesses will apply.

However, excess-free windscreen and window glass replacement is an optional benefit with all car insurance types. If you choose to select this optional benefit, you won’t have to pay an excess if you need to claim for accidental damage to your vehicle’s windscreen or window glass.

Note: the excess free benefit only applies if you are only claiming for is the windscreen and window glass

Are my car modifications covered under my insurance policy?

Our car insurance automatically includes cover for accessories and modifications that have been fitted to your car, up to the amount covered, except for the accessories and modifications listed below.

What are accessories? An accessory is an addition to your car which does not enhance the performance or change the structure of the car.

What are modifications? Modifications are alterations made to the manufacturer's standard body, engine, suspension, wheels or paintwork of your car which may affect its performance, value, safety or appearance.

Accessories and modifications we may not cover;
• Boost controller or External wastegate
• Custom/Specialised paint or Vinyl wrap (aftermarket)
• Door mods (Scissor/Gull wing or Shaved handles)
• Internal engine modifications
• Nitro/Hydrogen fuel
• Petrol turbo or Supercharger (fitted aftermarket)
• Roll bar or Roll cage or Racing harness
• Suspension replaced with airbags or hydraulics or pneumatics
• Wheelchair access
• 2WD/4WD conversions or Gearbox upgrade

What is an excess?

An excess is the amount you must pay for each incident when you make a claim. Depending on the circumstances, you may not have to pay an excess if it is agreed that the driver of your car was not at fault. Alternatively, you might have to pay more than one type of excess when you claim. Types of additional excess can include;

• Age excess which applies if a driver under 25 years of age was driving, using or in charge of your car at the time of the incident.
• Inexperienced driver excess which applies if a driver 25 years of age or over and licensed for the car type for less than 2 years, was driving, using or in charge of your car at the time of the event.
• Driver history excess which applies if a driver who has had their license cancelled, suspended, or disqualified in the last 3 years was driving, using or in charge of your car at the time of the incident.

Am I covered if my car breaks down?

Roadside Assistance is available as an optional benefit with comprehensive car insurance. Should your car break down, Roadside Assistance provides help with flat tyres, batteries, emergency fuel and towing. Find out more about this optional benefit.

Does my car insurance cover other drivers?

It is best to list all drivers who use the car on a regular basis when you purchase car insurance. Your premium will be based on the drivers you provide and will use factors such as age, gender and driving history. There are options on who drives your car, which can attract a discount on your insurance premium.
