Direct Line comprehensive car insurance

Direct Line, an insurance specialising branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland, was the first British telephone insurance company when it was established in 1985.

With the rise of other technologies, it has now cemented its place as one of the most successful and trusted providers of motor insurance via the internet and telephone in the United Kingdom.

This article deals with the main benefits of Direct Line's comprehensive car insurance policy, and the optional extras which you can purchase alongside it.

  • Basic coverage: Like most car insurance providers, Direct Line insures your car against damage by accident, theft or fire to the cost of repair or replacement not exceeding the value of your car. It insures against damage to a third party's property up to the value of £20,000,00. You are covered when driving a third party's car, and there is £5,000 coverage if you or your partner are injured fatally, lose a limb, or go blind as the result of an accident.
  • Wider coverage: Your own property within your car is protected up to £100 (not including documents or money), and your audio/satellite navigation equipment up to £1,000. The policy is valid for up to 90 days per year in the wider European Union. They also allow £150 in hotel expenses, should your car become impossible to drive.
  • Optional extras: Breakdown recovery in the UK at any time on any day; a breakdown recovery coverage extension to Europe; a courtesy car in the event of your car becoming impossible to drive.
