What is this Third Party Car Insurance all about?
Your car may be all tough and sturdy, but even Superman is not entirely invulnerable too. Aside from the fact that death or physical injury is one of the most feared consequences of an accident, seeing your months of savings washed down the drain because of the repair work you have to pay is equally disheartening.
Fear no more, MPI Generali Third Party Car Insurance gives you the financial help you need when you are liable to compensate the other party involved in an accident for bodily injury, property damage/loss and the worst of all, death.
Is there anything else that this policy offers?
That's all a Third Party Policy covers as it's the most basic plan of all compared to a Comprehensive Policy or a Third Party Fire and Theft Policy. There's always a silver lining in every cloud, although the coverage is not the greatest of all, you'll definitely enjoy a huge cut on the premium quoted.
Anyhow, a Third Party Insurance is generally reserved for an old vehicle that is not on hire purchase agreement. It's nearly impossible to apply one for a brand new car.
How much do I have to pay for this insurance?
There is a number of underwriting factors that insurer take into account when determining the premium such as vehicle type, engine displacement, age of vehicle and claims experience.
