Car and home insurance FAQs

Car insurance FAQs

What if I am noted as the regular driver on my car, but someone else drives it more frequently?

A regular driver is the person who drives the vehicle most often in any monthly period. Our premiums are charged based on the profile of the regular driver, meaning if a different driver from the one noted on the premium is considered the regular driver, then the monthly premium is incorrect and will not be covered.

For example, if a ‘regular driver’ (45-year-old) lets a driver (18-year-old) drive their vehicle to university daily without notifying us, we will charge a premium based on the profile of the ‘regular driver’ (45-year-old) rather than on the profile of the 18-year-old driver. This simply means we are receiving an incorrect premium, therefore, the vehicle is not covered. If the ‘regular driver’ changes, make sure you notify us immediately for continuous cover.

Does it matter if the vehicle is used for private or business purposes?

Yes, in order to have cover, it is vital that you insure your vehicle for the correct use.
In which countries is my vehicle covered?

Your vehicle is covered in South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe when used for private purposes.

If your vehicle is insured for business use, it is not covered while being used for business purposes outside South Africa unless you have selected the specific optional cover for business use in countries outside South Africa.

What if the address of where the vehicle is kept as noted on the policy, changes?

Always inform us immedicately if the address of where the vehicle is kept changes to have continuous cover and a valid claim.
Do I need anti-theft devices, like a tracker, in my vehicle?

You may need to fit additional anti-theft devices in your vehicle depending on what's noted on your policy.
