What’s Covered by ASB’s Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy?

According to ASB, its full cover policy “provides the highest level of car insurance cover,” and offers customers ‘comprehensive protection’ against sudden or accidental loss/damage – including that which is inflicted by an uninsured driver. The policy also covers legal liability to the tune of $20 million and excess-free windscreen claims. 

What’s Covered by ASB’s Third Party, Fire & Theft Policy?

Offering protection for legal liability (to the tune of $20 million), as well as damage from fire and theft, this policy also offers up to $3,000 in the event of an incident occurring when the other driver is at fault and uninsured.

What’s Covered by ASB’s Third Party Policy?

ASB says that its Third Party Policy is “useful if you only need basic cover for your own car, or are on a limited budget”. The policy includes legal liability for up to $20 million, as well as up to $3,000 for incidents inflicted by an uninsured driver.

What Don’t ASB’s Car Insurance Policies Cover?

Similar to many other insurers, ASB does not cover its customers in the event of mechanical failure, those using their vehicle for business purposes, or those operating their vehicle outside the terms of their license.

What Makes ASB’s Car Insurance Different?

According to ASB, customers can enjoy a range of discounts including a claim-free discount of up to 65 percent as well as access to its Roadside Rescue service.
