More details

Make sure you're not duplicating cover

  1. Does your mobile package already include insurance? When you purchased your new car did it come with breakdown insurance? Do you already have an annual travel insurance policy that won't run out for months?
  2. You should review the terms and conditions of your existing cover and compare against the Select and Cover options that you are considering to understand what best meets your needs.

Simple pricing

Select and Cover costs £19.50 a month for 3 options. For every further option you add, we'll adjust the price. Here are the costs:

  • 3 options — £19.50 a month (£234 a year)
  • 4 options — £26.00 a month (£312 a year)
  • 5 options — £32.50 a month (£390 a year)
  • 6 options — £39.00 a month (£468 a year)
  • 7 options — £45.50 a month (£546 a year)

You'll see the monthly cost as you make your selections when you apply.

Flexible options

You can switch choices annually as your circumstances change. You can swap all your options during an annual review period — we’ll send you a reminder to review your options on the anniversary of your policy.

You can also add and remove 1 option during each year, so long as you maintain a minimum of 3.

Immediate cover

If you sign up online your cover starts straight away and is continuous until you cancel your policy. So once you're covered, you're covered.

Kids included

The cover provided by each option is for you and your family, living at the address shown on your current policy schedule.

Cover for children will end on the policy anniversary after they turn 18 – or 23 if still in full-time education and living at home with you outside term time.

Excess and exclusions

You'll need to pay excess for claims on some options. Restrictions, exclusions, and T&Cs apply. See the information document for each choice above for further details.
