Liverpool Car Insurance
Liverpool was awarded City of Culture in 2008 and is renowned for its contribution to the arts and music. Not only is it the home of the famous rock and roll band–The Beatles, it also has many art galleries and museums, each within a stone’s throw away from one another. Along with winning cultural accolades Liverpool also has UNESCO status for The Prince’s Dock situated on the River Mersey, and was awarded UNESCO Musical Heritage status in 2015. Football is also a big part of the city and it has not just one, but two Premier League teams–Liverpool and Everton.
Does car insurance in Liverpool differ to elsewhere in the UK ?
Car insurance cover is standard no matter where you live. It’s the price of the policy that can vary. How much you pay for your insurance, depends on many factors, and these can include the size of you car’s engine, the make and model, your age, and where you live. You could save money on your policy by using your No Claim Discount (NCD). A No Claim Discount is earned each year, if you don’t make a claim on your car insurance. To prove you have a No Claim Discount you’ll need to show proof like your renewal invitation notice or ‘proof of bonus’ from your last insurer–which you can either email or send in the post. Of course this won’t be needed if we are able to automatically confirm your No Claim Discount during your quotation process.
What levels of car insurance are available?
If you’re insuring your car for the first time, knowing what level of cover to buy can be confusing. There are three levels of cover you can choose from depending on what you think you need. The levels of cover are summarised below:
Third party only
This is the most basic level of cover, and only covers the damage you do to another driver’s car, or any property that belongs to someone else. Your own car has no cover, so if it was stolen you’d have to replace the car out of your own pocket. The same goes for repairs, if your car has been damaged in an accident or you’ve accidently damaged your own car by–for example reversing into a wall, you’d have to cover the costs. esure doesn’t offer third party only insurance.
Third party fire and theft
This level of cover will protect your car if it’s stolen or damaged by fire. It also covers any damage done to another driver’s car if you’re involved in an accident. But the damage done to your car is your own responsibility, and you would have to pay for the repairs.
This is the highest level of cover you can buy–if you’re involved in an accident your car is covered as well as the other driver’s. It also covers you for accidental damage like scraping your car door against the garage wall. This level of cover is also useful for repairing malicious damage when it’s hard to prove who the culprit was, for example if someone has keyed your car.
