Did you know? It is a common belief that all annual insurance policies cover you to drive other cars, this is not always the case and where you do have cover it will almost certainly be on a third party basis. Take out a Dayinsure policy and you will be covered comprehensively and any claims will not affect the car owner’s NCD (No Claims Discount).

Jason never thought lending the keys to his prized Mustang to his cousin would end up being such a costly mistake. While on his way to work with the borrowed car, Jason’s cousin, who had been living with Jason’s family temporarily, was broadsided by an uninsured driver, which completely totaled the car. Jason was under the impression that his car insurance would cover the damages, and finding out the repairs would have to come out of his own pocket hurt almost as much as seeing Sally’s broken and battered body. While most auto insurance policies cover any driver who has been given permission to use the car, and can protect against damages caused by an occasional driver, Jason’s car insurance was valid only for the family members who had been named as part of their household.
A common misunderstanding is that annual insurance policies that cover commuting allow business trips to any location – they don’t! Commuting use only covers journeys to or from your regular place of work – so this could exclude cover if you visit a client, attend a training course or help out at a local branch. Our temp car insurance policies provide full business use (but not the carrying of goods or passengers for hire or reward).
Many drivers make the mistake of thinking if they rent a car they are covered by the policy the rental agency offers. You should realize that most rental agencies assume drivers are getting their own policy and the one they offer is usually terrible coverage at exuberant rates. Get better prices with better coverage with your own one day auto policy in place.

Collision Insurance is an optional coverage that will pay for the cost of repairs up to a total loss, in which case Liberty Mutual will give you the cash value of the vehicle. Including it on your policy requires the purchase of comprehensive coverage. While there are similarities between collision coverage and comprehensive coverage, here are the details of both:
And because you've had the nerve to spend your hard-earned money on making your modified car the envy of your manor - or at least made a start on it - you've probably heard them suppressing their sniggers as they tell you that they won't cover your modifications, and will only give you the 'market value' of the standard car if some muppet writes off your pride and joy. What a rip off!
Hi Stephen – I think you’re doing the right thing – as long as the premium continues to be reasonable compared to the competition. Even though we obsess on low rates, quality of service matters. It does little good if you get the cheapest policy, then they stick you when you have a claim. With must auto claims there’s going to be a human error factor (especially with new drivers), and you can’t be with companies that will hold that against you to such a degree that it seems like they no longer want your business.
Liberty Mutual just dropped my family because of two claims that were made on my daughters car. She had her car at school freshmen year and It was parked and hit on the rear corner closest to the road. It wasn’t her fault and no one came forward to admit to the accident. She no longer has a car at school, and drives rarely when she’s home. The second accident was when she was pulling out of the carport and her front bumper caught a wooden railing when she was backing out. That was her fault, but an accident. Isn’t that why we have insurance????? Before I got this letter from Liberty mutual, I sang their praises. I will loudly have bad things to say from now on. Don’t count on Liberty Mutual
Comprehensive car insurance covers damages from an "act of God," or events that are not caused by a car driving into something else. An "act of God" can include things like damage from a heavy tree branch falling on your car. Since you have no control over when or why a tree branch would fall on your car, this kind of accident would be covered under your comprehensive policy.
