A guide to car insurance
As a driver, insuring your car is one of the most important things you need to think about. Besides the fact that it's illegal to own an uninsured car, you could also end up facing a hefty bill if you run into any problems when driving without adequate insurance.

Which type of car insurance is right for you?
Again, it's important to be clear about the kind of cover you want - and that you make sure you read the terms of a policy carefully to be sure it provides just that before you commit yourself.
