The comprehensive car insurance policy we believe ticks all the right boxes. Your policy includes…
If your car is damaged by fire, your Cove policy covers the repair costs or, if it can’t be repaired, the agreed value you choose
If your car is stolen, your Cove policy covers the repair costs or, if it can’t be repaired or is not recovered, the agreed value you chose
If your car is damaged in an accident, your Cove policy covers the repair costs or, if it can’t be repaired, the agreed value you choose
New Car Cover
If at the time of accidental loss your car is less than 12 months old from its original registration or purchase as new, we will supply a new car of the same make model and specification
No fault – No excess
If you are in an accident and the other driver, who we can identify, is at fault, we won’t deduct any excess
We’ll cover the costs for transporting you & your passengers home, or pay for overnight accommodation, if your car can no longer be driven as a result of an accident
Loss to Trailers
We’ll pay the costs of repair or replacement up to a maximum of $1,000 if any trailer owned (or being used) by you for private use suffers accidental loss while attached to or detached from your car
Keys & Locks
We’ll pay for the cost of replacing the key or lock of your car if your keys have been lost or stolen
Your policy also covers an additional or replacement car you purchase up to the value of $80,000 for up to 14 days from purchase
This is only a summary of some of the benefits available as part of a Cove car insurance policy. To find out about our cover including benefits, limits and exclusions, please review our policy wording before purchase.
