High-end cars like Audi Q5 must be protected within the bubble of insurance, which must sufficiently payout in the event of an accident. Buying add-on insurance cover in addition to comprehensive coverage is a great way to ensure that your car is protected from all possible damages.
Listed below are some of the most popular car insurance covers that you might consider for your Audi Q5.
Roadside assistance add-on cover is an all-inclusive coverage that guarantees 24/7 assistance in the event of a breakdown of the car on road. Under this add-on cover, you will be reimbursed for the cost of damage due to engine breakdown, change of tires, refuelling and towing the vehicle to the nearest repair centre.
Comprehensive coverage does not cover injury to passengers involving an accident. However, having passenger protect add-on cover, you will be reimbursed towards the treatment and medication of passengers injured in the event of an accident.
Your regular comprehensive car insurance does not cover for accessories that are not included in the manufacturer's list. To ensure that you do not have to pay for damages to such accessories out of your pocket in the event of an accident, you must home in on the accessories cover.
Replacement of consumables like oil, refrigerant, grease, bolts, nuts and screws can add-up to a hefty amount without the consumables insurance. But with the consumables insurance add-on, you will be compensated for the amount spent towards replacing the aforementioned consumables.
Accumulated no-claim bonus received at every claim-free utility can lead up to 50% savings in the amount of premium paid. However, you will lose out on the bonus on making a claim. The No-Claim Bonus Protection Cover will allow you to retain the bonus even when you make a claim on your car insurance. The insured is allowed to make up to two claims under this add-on cover.
Comparing your car insurance with the latest plans available in the market is the best way to ensure that you are getting the most value for your money. Side by side comparison of plans will help you evaluate whether you should continue with your existing policy or switch to a better plan.
