Frequently asked questions about SGIO car insurance

What policies are available?

There are two SGIO car insurance policies listed in the Mozo database: the Comprehensive policy and the Comprehensive Plus. As the names suggest, the Comprehensive policy covers just about anything you could want your car insurance to cover - and the Comprehensive Plus includes anything else.

Excess is the amount you’ll need to pay toward getting your car fixed before your insurance kicks in. It’s money you may need to come up with in an emergency, so it’s important to choose the right level for your budget.

With SGIO, you can choose a low or high excess amount - but remember that the lower your excess, the higher your premium, and vice versa.
