Car insurance: what the latest modifications could mean for your premiums / Personal_Finance / Insurance

By: Justin_Weinger

When is a car modified and when it is not modified? No, this isn't intended as a philosophical question, though many motorists could easily feel as though it is when they are trying to navigate the pitfalls of insuring their car. Still, it's a question to which you really need to know the answer.

That's because, if you do need to claim on your car insurance, an insurer could refuse to make the payout if they learn that the vehicle was a modified one without their knowledge. Worse, the insurer could even cancel the policy, as your payments might not have reflected the car's worth.

Car Accident Not Your Fault, What Happens to Your Insurance Premium? (Morethan Example) / Personal_Finance / Insurance

By: N_Walayat

What happens to your car insurance if your involved in an accident that is NOT your fault? I imagine most motorists are thinking that given the fact that the insurance company will get ALL of their costs back from the third party's insurer, so there should be little increase in premium.

Well, that is not what actually tends to happens, in fact the driver at fault and the no fault driver are both likely to see a similar HIKE in insurance premiums! For instance if your insured with the leading RSA insurance brand MoreThan, and your involved in an accident that is NOT your fault then you can expect your insurance premium to rocket by as much as 42%! This despite the fact that the insurer (MoreThan) will have been fully reimbursed for costs incurred in the handling of the claim.
