Nobody likes having to pay for additional expenses. The reality of the situation is, in the case of car insurance, it’s an expense everyone that owns a vehicle should incur. Why get car insurance? One of the cold hard truths about most drivers in South Africa is that they do not have car insurance. What does this mean to you as a driver? This means absolutely nothing if you are never in an accident of any kind, but we all know that the unexpected happens every day. There is always the possibility that an act of nature can damage your car. What if someone steals it and you are not insured. All of the expenses that are connected would come out of your pocket if you do not have some sort of car insurance coverage.

Many of you will say, why get additional coverage for the previously mentioned scenarios, if you are covered by the Road Accident Fund. The truth in that is, the damages that another person’s vehicle or property suffers as the result of an accident are not covered by those funds. Additionally, the process of trying to get the money out of that fund is a long drawn-out one. Most people who have had to deal with the process find that having personal comprehensive insurance is the better alternative.

With the need and desire for personal auto insurance on the rise, more insurance companies are creating a variety of policies that will work for everyone’s budget. Regardless of what you can afford to pay, there is a policy available from one of the insurance companies. Furthermore, with an increase in people searching for a quality, yet inexpensive priced insurance policy, the various insurance companies are competing with each other to offer the best rates available to get the most business.

If you want to have the peace of mind of knowing not only will you, your vehicle and possessions be protected, but also those of anyone that you may be involved in an accident with, personal car insurance will offer just that. Request your free quote at autoinsurance.co.za today.
