Last updated 13 January 2016


Depending on the type of car you own, you can insure it for either market or agreed value. It’s important to note this is only available with our Comprehensive Car Insurance.

Here’s what they are:

  • Agreed value is the amount we agree to insure your vehicle for. Choosing this option means you’ll pay more for your insurance and we’ll be able to tell you the agreed value on your Certificate of Insurance.
  • Market value is the amount it will cost to replace your vehicle immediately prior to the loss or damage, based on its age, make, model and condition. This means this amount could vary during your Period of Insurance and the value isn’t shown on your Certificate of Insurance.

You can find out more in the PDS.
