Compare the best insurance quotes of South Africa and find the lowest rate
Have you bought a car in the past that is now an old car? Would you like it to be insured? I have in mind two wonderful companies that can really help those clients that currently possess second hand or old cars: Absa and Old Mutual.
For such reason, in the present article I will deal with the details of each of the insurances and then the contact information of these firms that are currently functioning in South Africa.
Old Mutual´s Car insurance for old cars
What type of insurances are ideal for old cars?
It can give you as much protection as you want at any circumstance and that can include experiencing one accident with another car, alone or even a sad circumstance in your home with your vehicle.
2 THIRD PARTY, FIRE AND THEFT
What can you get?
You can get protection from an outside driver, from a fire that has striken and damaged your car and also when someone has robbed something from the interior of your car. In those cases Old Mutual can offer its services and guidance and take care of all the expenses generated by awful events
3 THIRD PARTY ONLY
The only party that gets covered is the third one, since if you have an accident and the other person´s car gets broken or need to be repaired, then Old Mutual will respond by paying every expense of it. But it will not take care of your expenses in the accident. However, it is the cheapest option, so that makes it a good alternative too.
Absa´s Car insurances
Like it is the case with Old Mutual, with Absa you can have access to three different insurances for old cars, which are very likely to the previous ones, but I will also tell you about them:
1) COMPREHENSIVE COVER
Yes, I know what you must be thinking, that it is the one that costs the most but in the long term you will thank having selected this option. That happens because with this cover you can be calm and easy going that your car and you will be protected always, with no restrictions. You will never have to pay extra fees, those fees are taken care by Absa. And it does not matter if you are guilty, the company stills protects you, its client.
2 THIRD PARTY, FIRE AND THEFT
Yes, occasions such as damaging the other client´s car, being in an explosion and experiencing the sad situation of being robbed by a thief can disappear thanks to this kind of insurance for old cars. This is the medium option offered since it is not considered the cheapest but at the same time it is not the one that costs the most.
3 THIRD PARTY COVER
This is an option selected by those drivers that have old cars that are not so new but at the same time are not in a really good state. So, they believe they need minimum protection such as begin protected against a third party. In such situation, Absa is there to help the client by covering all the costs. Most clients that favor this option are trying to save money in order to buy a new car, so that makes sense.
