How do I renew my policy?

Do I have cover to drive other cars on my policy?
Many insurers offer a third party extension that would permit you to drive other vehicles, but don’t assume that you have this cover – contact us to make sure. You should also remember that this only covers you for the minimum legal requirement. This means that if you are involved in an accident you’re only covered for damage to third party property or injury to other people. It won’t cover you for damage to the car that you’re driving. If in doubt, get in touch with us to confirm that cover is in place before driving someone else’s car.
