Motor Vehicle Insurance

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Cars cost money to buy, money to own, and money to run. So anywhere you can save deserves closer inspection. With First Option’s Motor Vehicle Insurance, you can relax and enjoy the drive, knowing that should anything happen, you can be back on the road without major expense or hassles.

Cover Options

You have a range of cover options, depending on your own circumstances and those of others likely to drive your car.

  • Comprehensive - This policy provides complete cover, regardless of the number of licensed drivers using the vehicle. It protects you against theft, fire and damage to your car, as well as damage you may cause to another person’s car or property.
  • 30+ Plus Nominated Driver Cover - If you are a more experienced driver 30 years of age or over, and others under 30 won’t be driving the car, you can nominate two drivers who are 30 years of age or over and take out a full comprehensive policy at a discounted price.
  • Third Party Only - This provides cover for damage you may cause to another person’s car or property, but does not cover your own car. Uninsured Driver Protection Cover is included under this policy.
  • Third Part Fire & Theft - This is an extension of the Third Party Only Policy, which provides cover if your car is stolen or damaged due to fire.

A number of ways to save

  • Multi-policy discount - Once you have one MemberCare insurance policy with us, we’ll give you a discount on each additional MemberCare policy#
  • No claim bonus - If you’ve been claim-free for a period of 12 months upward, you may qualify for a no-claim bonus of up to 60% off the base premium.
