Comprehensive Car Insurance

Comprehensive cover for your car. In the event of an accident you know that you'll have the protection to cover damages to your car and also any damages you may cause to someone else's car or property.

Most trusted brand award 2011 - 2016

Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy Benefits:

Agreed Value

Together we work out what your vehicle is worth, including any accessories you have or modifications you've made. So you know exactly what we'll pay if it's written off or stolen — no haggling, no hassles.

Damage to your own vehicle

If there is an accident or your car is damaged, we will either pay for the repairs or pay you the value we agreed on when you took out your policy, or when you last renewed it (whichever the lesser).

Legal liability cover

If you are responsible for damage to someone else's vehicle or property we'll protect you against any claim they make, up to $20 million.

Customer Service Centres*

Exclusive to AA Insurance! A one-stop-shop if your car's damaged, to help get you back on the road again as quickly as possible. We'll get your car assessed, quoted on, repaired, painted and quality checked, so you can get on with life.

*Auckland and Hamilton only

Quality Repairer Network

We have a select network of skilled repair specialists who meet the highest quality standards for work and service.

We choose the best repairer for the job, the one with the most suitable equipment and expertise for your car. And we stand behind all their work with our Lifetime Repair Guarantee.

Young driver flexibility

There will be times when younger drivers (age 24 or younger) may need to drive your car, and you haven't named them on your policy. With AA Insurance, they're still covered, subject to a separate excess payment.

No Fault, No Excess

If you're in an accident that wasn't your fault and you can identify whose fault it was, you may not have to pay any excess. Please see the Comprehensive car insurance policy document for more details.

Additional benefits for peace of mind:

Optional extras

Excess-Free Glass Cover

If you buy Excess-Free Glass Cover and your claim is only for accidental damage to your windscreen or windows, you won't have to pay your excess.

Rental Cover

If you buy Rental Cover and you're without a car as a result of a claim, we'll organise a rental car to keep you on the road while your car is being repaired.
