What does Aviva car insurance cover?

Aviva car insurance offers two levels of insurance - comprehensive, or third party, fire and theft.

Third party, fire and theft (TPFT) insurance

This level of insurance covers your vehicle against loss or damage due to fire or theft, plus legal costs if you’re involved in an accident.

Comprehensive insurance

You’re covered for loss or damage to your vehicle, as well as injuring someone or damaging their vehicle or property in an accident. Legal costs, motor injury protection and vehicle recovery are also included.

What optional extras are available?

You can tailor Aviva insurance to your exact needs by adding extras to your policy including:

  1. Protected no-claims discount

    Keeps your no-claims discount safe in the event of a single claim

  2. Motor legal services

    Pays up to £100,000 in legal costs if you’re involved in a motor accident that’s not your fault

  3. Courtesy car

    Available with a comprehensive insurance policy only, this extra will provide you with a car if yours is damaged, written off or stolen

  4. Motor injury protection plus

    Covers you or any named drivers who suffer a serious injury or death as the result of an accident in the insured car. (Comprehensive insurance only)

  5. UK breakdown cover

    Essential help if your car breaks down

  6. Foreign use

How much does Aviva car insurance cost?

Like all car insurance, the cost will depend on a range of factors including:

  • The make and model of your vehicle
  • Your driving history
  • Where you live
  • If you keep your vehicle in a safe place overnight
  • Your annual mileage
  • Your job

An Aviva policy may seem like the right choice for you, but it’s always important to compare options from other insurers to see how it stacks up. You may be able to get the same level of cover for a lower price elsewhere.
