Car insurance is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make; making the wrong decision with your car insurance could ruin you financially. Why the need to purchase insurance for your car? Firstly, South Africa has a high road accident rate. Secondly, the chances of having your car stolen are higher here than in many other countries. Therefore, driving around without motor car insurance could be one of your riskiest financial decisions.

The cost of your Car insurance will depend on various factors. Younger, less experienced drivers will generally pay more and if you’ve previously made an insurance claim, your car insurance will be higher. If you can’t afford to pay much for car insurance, but know the importance of insuring your car, you will need to shop around to get the best car insurance deal for the least amount of money.

All insurance for cars comes with some level of excess. The excess is the first few hundred or even thousand Rands that you have to pay before the insurance company will pay anything towards your car insurance. The good news is that the bigger the excess you take on your car insurance, the lower your monthly premiums will be.

Car insurance is usually sold through a broker, who sells the policies on behalf of the big insurance companies. They often represent more than one company so they should have a range of products to offer you. When purchasing insurance for your car, always ensure that your broker is a member of a reputable insurance brokers’ association, which will ensure that s/he adheres to a code of conduct.
