Types of car insurance

With all the different options out there, it can be difficult to know which car insurance policy is right for you. Make sure you choose the right level of cover by having a read of what the different policies offer.

What are the different types of car insurance?

Multi car

With a multi car insurance policy from Hastings Direct, you can insure up to five cars on the same policy.

Some of the benefits included with a multi car policy include:

  • Windscreen and windows cover with our comprehensive cover
  • £5,000 personal accident cover with our comprehensive cover
  • Courtesy car if your car's being repaired by an approved repairer
  • EU cover for up to 90 days per trip
  • Unlimited cover for factory fitted audio equipment
  • Uninsured driver and vandalism promise with our comprehensive cover.

Young drivers insurance

As a young driver, it can be hard to find low costing insurance, because the likelihood of a young driver being involved in an accident and needing to claim is considerably higher. We believe that insurance should be available to as many people as possible, which is why we offer comprehensive car insurance for young drivers. We've also suggested ways in which you can lower the costs of your insurance and get yourself the best deal available.

Student car insurance

Finding affordable car insurance as a student can sometimes be difficult; as insurers take into consideration certain risks that may occur as a student, for example, certain towns and cities have a greater risk of car theft and vandalism, resulting in a claim.

Over 50s car insurance

If you're over 50 and looking for car insurance, we offer policies that reflect the level of experience older drivers have. We can offer a policy that best suits your individual requirements with our flexible car insurance options.
