4 reasons why new car owners choose Comprehensive Car Insurance

Car Interior

We invest a lot in our cars. In fact, Northern Territorians bought 10,000 new vehicles in 2017, that’s 0.2% more than in 20161 .

So, plenty of us are looking for a new car. When we get one, we want to keep that new car feeling for as long as possible.

And that’s where comprehensive car insurance comes in.

 

 

Why choose comprehensive car insurance?

Comprehensive cover means you’re fully covered for accident damage to your car whether you caused the damage or not. It also cover’s damage you cause to other people’s cars or their property.

Four-year new car replacement

Being fully covered is often even more important to new car owners.  New car owners who choose AANT for comprehensive car insurance can choose a Four-Year New Car Replacement option. The new car replacement guarantee means that as long as you own the car from new and you insure it with us within its first two years, you’ll get four years peace of mind with this replacement option.

Something extra

Say your car was stolen, how would you manage without transport? What would you do if you were in an accident and miles away from home? Comprehensive car insurance comes in handy again. It includes up to 14 days of hire car if your car’s stolen2 and emergency accommodation and transport3.

At-fault cover

Like it sounds, at-fault cover is where you cause damage that’s your fault. Not-at-fault is when someone else causes damage to your car. Last year, nearly one in three NT motor claims (31%4) claims were the driver’s fault. AANT comprehensive cover gives you four peace-of-mind years knowing that whether you’re at-fault or not, if your new car’s a write-off, it’ll be replaced with a brand new one5. You’ll just have to pick the colour.
