The benefits you will be offered as standard with comprehensive car insurance will depend on the insurance company you receive a quote from, but all Hyperformance policies come with legal cover up to £100,000.
As an example, the following benefits are included as standard with AXA policies:
24-hour claims line
New car benefit – if your car is less than 12 months old and is a total loss or stolen and not recovered, it will be replaced with one of the same make and model
Windscreen/glass replacement – this will not affect your no claims bonus
Audio cover – unlimited cover for loss or damage to permanently fitted car stereos or sat navs
Replacement lock and keys – provides cover of up to £1,000 for replacing lost keys or broken locks
Personal accident cover – provides up to £15,000 if you or another adult in your car suffers permanent loss of sight or limbs or dies in an accident
Medical expenses cover – provides up to £250 for each person injured in an accident
Courtesy car – provided while your car is being repaired
Personal effects cover – up to £300 for damage to possessions inside the car
Child seat replacement cover – up to £300 for damage to child car seats
Misfuelling cover – up to £250 if you fill up with the wrong fuel
Yes, as well as the standard package of benefits mentioned above, you can also choose from a range of optional extras for an additional premium.
There are three breakdown cover options to choose from:
Roadside assistance: providing assistance within a 10-mile limit only. This is the cheapest option
Motor assistance UK only: providing assistance as above but also a nationwide recovery service, plus homecall, alternative travel and accommodation, alternative driver and accident hospitalisation in the UK.
Motor assistance UK and EU: providing all of the above in both the UK and EU. This is the most expensive option.
This will repay the amount of excess you choose to protect in the event of a claim where you are considered at least partially at fault. Excess levels range from £350 to £1,500.
If they are not already included in your policy, you can also choose to add:
Windscreen cover – up to £500
Personal accident insurance – up to £30,000 per passenger
Car hire cover – provides a replacement vehicle if yours requires repairs or is stolen
Hyperformance specialises in finding insurance for prestige and performance cars and says it has “built up a range of specialist schemes that are not always available to high street insurance brokers”.
It may be best suited to you if you have a:
High value car
Limited edition model
Insure Your Motor may be more suitable if you are struggling to get competitive car insurance elsewhere because you:
Have a conviction
Live in an area where claims, accidents and crime rates are high
Have zero no-claims bonus
Have an adverse claims history
