Another way of cutting down on the cost of the car insurance price is to take out a third party fire and theft policy, this type of policy is cheaper than the fully comprehensive policy but of course is more limited than taking out fully comprehensive cover. Third party will cover you for damage to the other party’s car if you should be involved in an accident and along with this you will have cover if your car should be stolen or damaged by fire. Fully comprehensive on the other hand will cover you for everything that third party does but will also give you cover to repair your own car, cover for passengers if they should be hurt along with other extras.
