Frequently Asked Questions

What is car insurance?

There are three main types of car insurance available in Ireland and each offer differing levels of protection.

  • Third-party: This is the minimum legal requirement needed to drive a car in Ireland and throughout the European Union. Third-party insurance only pays out for claims that others make against you caused by damage or injury. It can cover the cost of damage to another person’s vehicle, but it does not cover damage to your own car.
  • Third-party, fire and theft: As well as third-party cover, this type of car insurance allows you to claim for loss or damage to your own car as a result of fire or theft. However, it does not cover accidental damage to your vehicle. If you are at fault for an accident, third-party, fire and theft won’t cover you for vehicle damages or any injuries that you sustain.
  • Comprehensive: This type of insurance offers drivers the most protection, but is also the most expensive. Comprehensive car insurance gives you third-party, fire and theft cover and also allows you to claim for damage to your own car, no matter who is to blame. The benefits of comprehensive policies vary between insurance companies and there are additional features you can add to your policy.

What should I consider when taking out car insurance?

Remember that when taking out car insurance it’s not just about getting the cheapest price. Key factors to consider include the amount of excess you choose to pay, whether or not you want no claims bonus protection or step-back bonus protection, if you want windscreen cover and whether you want to add on roadside or breakdown assistance.
