Mozo snapshot

Are you after a low-cost car insurance policy with plenty of flexible features? Virgin Money’s comprehensive policy might just be the ticket. It’s packed with coverage for items in your car and the four-wheeled structure itself, plus handy inclusions if your car is involved in an accident or crime. Take all that protection and slap a few of the discounts Virgin Money offers on top and you’ve got yourself a great-value insurance policy.

Key features

Like many comprehensive car insurance policies, this one ticks off major natural disasters, accidents and theft when covering your vehicle at an agreed upon value or at market price. You’ll also be sorted if you damage other cars or property, and can expect specific coverage for things like personal property (up to $500), baby capsules (up to ($500) and trailers (up to $1,000).

After an accident, you can book in for towing (if the vehicle is unsafe to drive because of the damage) and essential repairs which Virgin Money will cover, and can you claim a certain amount of travel and accommodation costs. If your car is stolen or if you’re in a not-at-fault accident, you’ll be eligible for hire car cover up to 14 days (or up to $1,000) – at-fault cover can be included as an optional extra.

There are a couple of other things which also come optionally at price bumps, like reduced excess windscreen cover, having your own choice of repairer and protection for if you break your no claims discount.

Speaking of discounts – there are a few we better mention. That no claims discount can go as high as 15% of your premium, and you’ll knock another 15% off in the first year simply by applying for your policy online.
