Recent research from Mintel reveals the number of people in the UK with comprehensive car insurance policies in their own name increased to 51 per cent in 2009. The report indicates that the increase of individual comprehensive car insurance policies may be indicative of a trend for consumers to opt for greater levels of protection.
With this in mind, the Post Office reminds consumers who do not have a comprehensive car insurance policy of the importance of the extra protection it provides.
The Post Office's comprehensive car insurance cover, for example, brings benefits such as a courtesy car in the case of an accident, a three-year guarantee on approved claim repairs and medical expenses up to £200. Other benefits of comprehensive car insurance from the Post Office include cover for accidental damage to the vehicle including windscreen and windows, and cover for storm and flood damage.
For anyone considering taking out car insurance, the Post Office recommends that consumers take a long-term view and examine their individual needs when it comes to their car insurance policy options. Drivers without comprehensive car insurance cover, for example, could be inconvenienced if they are left without a vehicle after an accident.
