SGIC Comprehensive Plus Car Insurance comes stacked with features to cover you in a wide range of driving mishaps. For example, if your windscreen is chipped by a rogue rock on the road, you’ll be able to get that fixed without having to fork out any of your own money on an excess. SGIC also covers you for any tools of trade, up to the value of $1,500 and provides $500 worth of cover for any other personal property that might be stolen or damaged.
If you’d like some flexibility around who is responsible for repairing your pride and joy, this policy gives you the choice of repairer or if your brand new car is written or stolen within two years of you purchasing it, SGIC will replace it with another fresh set of wheels. Just bear in mind that roadside assistance doesn’t come as standard for this policy but you can opt for it as an additional extra.
SGIC rewards its customers for their loyalty, so depending on the number of years you’ve had a relationship with the company and the number of policies you hold, you could save up to 25% on your premium through a loyalty discount. On top of that, this policy also comes with one of the more indulgent no claims bonus schemes so if you’ve got a proven track record of being a safe driver, you will be eligible for a discount ranging from 25% to 65%. The best part is that, even if without a no claims bonus, SGIC will slash $100 off your premium when you sign up online - so there are definitely savings to be had with SGIC’s Comprehensive Plus Car Insurance.
Who it's good for:
This policy is a great option for you if you have splashed any extra cash on your car after purchasing it. SGIC Comprehensive Plus Car Insurance automatically covers any modifications made to your vehicle and will talk with you about agreeing a value for the car so that you can adequately replace it if something were to go wrong.
As SGIC is NRMA’s South Australian arm, this policy is only available for residents of that state. Also keep in mind that if you’ve got any kids that are likely to drive you car it is a good idea to name them on your policy and avoid the unnamed driver excess of $1,200 for drivers under the age of 25.
