Frequently asked questions

Are my passengers covered for Personal Accident without the additional cover?

Our standard, Plus, Legal and Premier products include £5,000 of Personal Accident cover for the policyholder only. If you’d like to cover your passengers too, you can choose to pay a small additional premium for extra Personal Accident Cover.

There are two ways of purchasing Personal Accident Cover:

You can take out Personal Accident Cover when you purchase a car insurance policy online or over the phone.

If you already have a car insurance policy with 1st Central, you can easily add Personal Accident Cover at any time during the year in Your Account.

There will be a proportional cost to include this cover until renewal.

What does the additional Personal Accident cover protect me for?

Although it's not something we like to think about, an accident can happen at any time and can leave you and your family struggling to cope financially.

Our Personal Accident Cover gives you peace of mind and provides support for you and your loved ones in the unfortunate event of death or certain serious injuries.

Our additional Personal Accident Cover will allow you to claim:*

  • Up to an additional £60,000 for certain injuries or death to yourself, or any passengers following an accident in your car
  • £100 a day for up to 180 days for hospitalisation costs or following temporary injuries preventing you from working or completing daily activities
  • Aftercare benefits such as physiotherapy and counselling (£2,000 for each)

Even if you don’t regularly carry passengers, you may still want to consider if you should have cover for yourself should an accident happen.

You’ll get the pay-out regardless of who’s to blame.

Some age limits apply.
