When you take out a comprehensive car insurance policy with Brightside, you can benefit from a wide array of different covers and services. Depending on which policy you take out, you can take advantage of features such as:
It could happen to anybody; you’re driving along when suddenly you get a chip in your windscreen, or worse. Windscreen cover allows you to recoup the cost of any windscreen repairs, or even a full windscreen replacement if necessary. Windscreen cover is included as part of any comprehensive policy. However if you choose a Third Party Fire and Theft policy, or just Third Party, you have the option to buy this as an additional product.
When your car is being repaired after an accident we are able to offer a courtesy car as standard with some of our car insurance policies. When you report a claim to our claims management team, they'll quickly assess whether your insurer will provide a repair or whether there is an at fault third party that will cover the cost. Your car will be booked in for repair and a courtesy car provided.
Planning on taking your car around Europe? As part of our comprehensive car insurance policy, Brightside offers you 90 days of European cover which means you can embark on your continental motoring or summer holidays safe in the knowledge that you’re covered.
As an unfortunate fact of life, accidents can happen on the roads, sometimes through no fault of your own. However, Brightside can help give you peace of mind. Within our standard comprehensive policy you have personal accident insurance of up to £5,000 in the event of serious and/or unexpected injury whilst on the roads.
At Brightside, we understand that you can’t afford for your car to be off the road. Having your car out of action makes every day life much more difficult - how would you get to work? Or get the children to school? Having the right breakdown cover in place is very important and our Breakdown Cover, provided by RAC, is designed to fit multiple needs and budgets with many different covers available. And with RAC fixing one car every 19 seconds you couldn't be in better hands.
Excess Protection lets you claim back the money you will have to pay out in the event of a claim. This means that you can get the benefit of a cheaper quote and still have the cost of the excess amount covered in the event of a claim so you don't lose out. Excess Protection can also be applied to any insurance policy that carries an excess.
Having car insurance is all well and good, but if you lose your keys then you can find yourself very much stuck. Key Cover protects you if your car keys are lost or stolen which includes £1,500 annual cover for locksmiths’ charges, new locks and keys.
When you’ve had an accident which wasn’t your fault you sometimes need legal help. Without Motor Legal Expenses cover legal advice and representation could mean you lose some of your pay-out to pay the solicitors. Having Motor Legal Expenses can save you thousands in these situations as your legal costs are covered. Allowing you to keep all of your personal injury compensation and all of your uninsured losses that were recovered.
