What you need to know about vehicle insurance

Let us guide you to get the best vehicle insurance for your needs at the best price.

  • When should you get car insurance?

    If you would like your vehicle covered against loss, accident, theft and write off or you would like access to 24/7 professional help with roadside, medical or household emergencies. 

  • What does Absa Insurance and Absa idirect’s car insurance include?

    Whatever your car insurance needs, we offer you convenience. You can decide whether you want comprehensive insurance or more limited cover. Look at what we offer.

    Comprehensive cover

    We will make sure that you are met with no nasty surprises with bills after an accident or loss. Comprehensive car insurance includes:

    • damage to your vehicle due to an accident 
    • damage to your vehicle caused by storm, hail, floods or snow 
    • fire damage to your vehicle 
    • theft and attempted theft 
    • damage to other people’s property (including walls or gates) 
    • liability to a third party caused by an accident
    Third-party, fire and theft insurance

    If you aren't interested in paying for all of the 'bells and whistles', but still require peace of mind, third-party, fire and theft insurance is perfect for you. This cost-effective protection will cover your vehicle for:

    • damage caused by fire
    • theft and attempted theft
    • liability as a result of damage to a third party’s property caused by an accident
    Third-party insurance

    Our third option, third-party vehicle insurance, is for you if you feel that the low value of your own vehicle does not require cover, and would prefer to only insure against the costs of damage to others' property by your car.

    Optional cover choices
    • Car hire to minimise the inconvenience while your car is in for repairs with a replacement vehicle
    • Sound equipment so you can replace your non-factory fitted sound equipment if necessary
    • Credit shortfall cover for the shortfall between what you owe the finance house and the retail value of the car in a case where your vehicle is written off or stolen
    • Accessories cover for all your accessories; including tow bars, alloy wheels, body kits, etc.
  • Insuring your vehicle

    You choose the extent of cover you want on your car, bakkie, 4X4 or motorcycle.
