How to choose between 1st party and 3rd party car insurance

Updated: Jan 3

Need more information on 1st party or 3rd party insurance for your car?


Well, hereโ€™s a quick and easy break down on what those terms mean when choosing your next car insurance!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘‰


1st Party:

1st party car insurance, or often referred to as comprehensive coverage, is your shield against various risks. It covers damages to your vehicle, regardless of who's at fault. If your car faces damage 1st party insurance typically foots the bill for repairs, minimizing your out-of-pocket expenses.


3rd Party:

3rd party car insuranceย On the other hand, provides coverage for damages caused to someone else's vehicle or property. If you're at fault in an accident, this insurance covers the costs incurred by the other party. However, it doesn't protect your vehicle. Fire and theft is another type of 3rd Party.


Examples of Coverage:


1-If a car is damaged after hitting a streetlight
