Our Cover Options
We're often asked about the differences between Comprehensive or Third Party, Fire and Theft insurance. Both offer protection and peace of mind, but you might prefer one or the other, depending on your situation. We've outlined our great range of policy options below, so you can choose the cover that's right for you.
Choose Comprehensive Car Insurance so you can rest easy, knowing you're covered for damage to your own vehicle, as well as Third Party, Fire and Theft. This cover includes a range of added comforts, from breakdown assistance all the way to windscreen replacement and cover for personal belongings.
Third party insurance is the minimum level of motor insurance required in the European Union. Our Third Party, Fire and Theft policy provides 24 hr breakdown assistance, helps protect you in case your car is burned or stolen, and if you're at fault in an accident, it covers damage to others and their property (3).
3) Please refer to our policy booklets for full cover details and terms and conditions that apply. Discounts, cover limits, and terms and conditions are dependent on your car insurance underwriter and those applicable to you will be outlined in your policy documents.

The website was easy to use. Not overly complicated like other insurance companies I have used in the past. Being able to upload the required documents after purchasing the insurance was fantastic - easy and efficient. The benefits included as standard are a game changer. My insurance policy and documents were received really quickly afterwards also. I’m already recommending An Post Insurance to my family and friends. Thank you! Aisling 31.05.2021
