Having GAP insurance in place means that if your vehicle is stolen or written off you have cover in place which pays the difference between the insurer pay out and the original cost of your vehicle.

Things to consider....

  • You will need the device fitted within 7 days 
  • Your driving style as this will be monitored 
  • Your financial situation as you could incur fines and charges
  • Can you predict your mileage for the next year as this will be monitored 
  • Are you likely to change your vehicle as you will need the device refitted which will incur a fee 
  • Will named drivers also drive within the agreed behaviours

What makes Brightside Insurance different?

  • Own a modified or high performance car? Not a problem. We can arrange cover for these vehicles through our top insurers to give your horsepower the peace of mind to gallop.
  • Have you made claims elsewhere or having prior convictions? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to get car insurance at all. If you have convictions, previous claims or if you haven’t lived in the UK all your life, then Brightside can help you get the car insurance you need.
  • Have specialist needs? We can provide a simple online question set or advisers over the phone to help you on your way.
  • We are a broker, so we have a great range of insurers at our disposal to offer you a competitive price on your car insurance. These insurers include well-known brands such as AXA and Aviva and many more. 

We provide cover where others can't

We understand that drivers across the UK have a multitude of different needs when it comes to car insurance. 

Some drivers may have a higher number of points on their license. Some drivers may own a high performance car and may be struggling to find the right insurance elsewhere. Other drivers may need cover that allows them to travel abroad to Europe. 

At Brightside, we know that every driver is different. We are certain that we will be able to offer you a competitive car insurance quote across a wide range of circumstances. And when we’re confident, you can be confident too.

We can arrange cover if you

  • Haven't lived in the UK all your life
  • Have previous claims
  • Have previous motoring or criminal convictions
  • Are not the registered owner of the vehicle
  • Own a modified or high value car

We provide a wide range of car insurance covers

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:

Windscreen cover

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.

Courtesy car

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.

90 Day European Cover

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.

Personal accident insurance

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.

Additional Car Insurance Products

RAC Breakdown cover

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

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.

Excess protection

Key cover

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.

Key cover

Motor Legal Expenses

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.
