Why choose Autosure Insurance?
Autosure NZ takes pride in their easy-to-understand wording, allowing them to get their message across to a wider audience. And because Autosure policies are underwritten by Vero Insurance NZ, they provide no-fuss solutions with no stand-down periods when it comes to providing comprehensive car insurance. You can choose from three different levels of protection, depending on your needs and budget.
Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI)
A mechanical breakdown is the last thing you want to experience upon purchasing a new automobile, so Autosure has taken steps to help Kiwis with this problem. Their Mechanical Breakdown Insurance can cover the costs of repairing mechanical or electrical parts (unless excluded in their policy guidelines). It’s a good policy to invest in when you’re considering buying a new car.
Types of Autosure Car Insurance Policies NZ - Quotes, Interest Rates
Comprehensive Everyday Plus Car Insurance
This is Autosure NZ’s comprehensive policy designed for drivers who use their vehicles for both private driving and business-related purposes. It covers 4WDs, utilities, and vans. As such, Autosure Insurance always asks the purpose of the vehicle prior to signing up for the policy, in order to ensure that no compatibility issues arise.
Third Party Property Damage Car Insurance
This is Autosure’s third party only policy, covering you only for damage you inflict on somebody else’s car or property. It provides legal liability for up to $20 million, however, it doesn’t cover liability for when you use a vehicle that isn’t yours, or on a trailer or caravan being towed by your own car. It does provide benefits such as transport cover, as well as damage by uninsured drivers.
Third Party Fire & Theft Car Insurance
This is similar to their TPPD offer, but with the added bonus of covering you for fire damage or theft/attempted theft. In the event that your car is lost or stolen, Autosure NZ will pay you the market value of your vehicle, or the amount insured in your policy (depending on which costs less).
Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance
Autosure Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance or GAP is offered to new and existing clients to protect them against significant losses in case that their vehicle is declared a total loss. GAP can shoulder a portion of your outstanding balance if it so happens that the total loss settlement amount by your other car insurer is less than the amount you owe to your financier for your auto loan.
Maximum loan amount is $100,000 with a loan term of 60 months.
