What are the advantages of an all-risk car insurance?

The all-risk car insurance is also called the WA full hull insurance. This insurance is an addition to the WA insurance and also has all the covers of the WA limited case insurance. It also covers damage you have caused to your own vehicle. But what does the all-risk car insurance exactly mean? What are the advantages and is an all-risk car insurance suitable for your situation? Also read Is an all-risk insurance the best choice?

What exactly is an all-risk car insurance?

The all-risk car insurance compensates for damage to your own car, regardless of how it was caused (except for intentional damage). It is also true that many insurers offer a great advantage when the car is declared total loss: often in the first 1 to 3 years the new value of the car will be paid. The all-risk insurance therefore literally covers a lot more risks. And as said, the all-risk car insurance is a supplement to the WA-insurance. The WA-insurance (Wettelijke Aansprakelijkheid) is obliged, the all-risk insurance is not. With the WA-coverage the damage is covered that you cause to others. Therefore, it is compulsory.

Examples and advantages of comprehensive car insurance

As mentioned before, the all-risk car insurance offers many advantages. Here is a handy overview of the nice advantages of the all-risk insurance:

  • Compensation fordamage caused by your own fault : whether you cause a collision, drive into a ditch or skid, your insurer pays for the damage and often arranges for replacement transport.
  • Damage caused by vandalism : theft damage is covered in the limited hull insurance. Damage caused by vandalism is also covered by the all-risk policy.
  • New-for-old value when your car is declared total loss: Do the costs of the damage exceed the value of your car, or is the car beyond repair? Then often in the first three years new value is paid with the all-risk insurance.

As you can see, all-risk car insurance does indeed offer considerable advantages.
