What’s covered by Club Auto’s Auto One car insurance policy?

All Auto One policies include:

  • Full cover of your vehicle including accidental damage, fire, theft, and damage you may cause to another person’s property (third party)
  • For your car repairs following a claim, you can choose your own car repairer – or if you decide to use a Club Auto recommended repairer, Club Auto will provide a lifetime guarantee on those repairs
  • Cover for windscreen and window glass breakages with no excess or loss of no claims bonus

Club Auto offers optional cover for high-valued items, such as stereo equipment, alloy wheels, or fitted accessories. There are also discounts if you have more than one vehicle insured with Club Auto.

What’s covered by Club Auto’s Shock Absorber policies?

Club Auto’s Shock Absorber policy can be purchased for third party fire and theft cover, or just third party only. Third party only covers you for damage or injury to a third party, while third party fire and theft also covers you if your car is stolen.

Features of Shock Absorber:

  • Completion of journey cover up to $500
  • Liability cover for up to $2 million
  • Short-term cover for tourists buying a vehicle and travelling around NZ

What makes Club Auto’s car insurance different?

Club Auto also offers an SOS Roadside Assistance service, providing 24-hour breakdown assistance. It also offers an Advanced Driver Training Program, featuring one-on-one tuition with on-track instructors.
