What is a new value insurance?

When you buy a new car, it is wise to look at the so-called new-for-old value arrangement when you take out your car insurance. With the new value scheme, the insurer gives you an amount that is high enough to buy the same car new, if your car is declared total loss or stolen. The scheme only applies to new cars and is only possible if you are the first owner of the car.

Many insurers have a new-for-old value arrangement of 1 year. This means that if you total your car or if the car is stolen within a year, the new value is paid to you.

Do you want a new-for-old policy that is valid for more than 1 year? There are insurers who apply a scheme of more than 1 year.

New car insurance 3 years

Some insurers apply a new-for-old value arrangement of two years. Sometimes it is possible, at a higher premium, to opt for a new-for-old value arrangement of up to, say, three years. The regulation can differ a lot per insurer. So pay close attention to this when you take out your car insurance.

Maximum new value

It is also possible that you will be paid a maximum amount, regardless of the new value of the car. There are insurers who pay a maximum amount under the new-for-old scheme, no matter how expensive your car was. In the policy conditions of your car insurance you can find if the insurer applies a maximum amount and what the amount is.

car insurance - new value regulation

What is the difference between new value insurance and purchase value insurance?

For new cars, many car insurance companies have a new value scheme. This scheme makes it possible to buy a new car when you total your car. For second-hand cars, this scheme does not apply. When buying a used car, you can choose for the purchase value arrangement. This means that you do not receive the new value, but rather the purchase value of the car, should you drive it into a total loss within the maximum period of validity.
