Choosing Motor Insurance with Silversurfers

With so much choice out there, the simple act of choosing car insurance can sometimes feel like a complicated problem.

You must have motor insurance to drive a vehicle on UK roads. The legal minimum is third-party insurance; it covers liability for injury to others and damage to third party property, but doesn’t cover any other costs – like repairing your own vehicle.

Choosing the right car insurance

There’s advantages to stepping away from the box standard third-party only cover and choosing more tailored options.

You can find policies that offer better value for money and suit a range of needs with more comprehensive cover. In contrast to the bare minimum, a comprehensive policy will cover things like medical expenses associated with a crash, windscreen cover, loss or damage to your vehicle, accidental damage and personal effects.

The vehicle you drive is another consideration – your needs might differ if you drive a van, own a motorbike or caravan or are looking for cover for a classic car.

Any number of factors can impact the policy you need and the price you pay for it. Occasional drivers may want the simplest policy possible, while others who are driving several hours a week may choose a range of optional extras to have every eventuality covered.
