Top FAQs

Third party insurance only covers you if:

    You injure someone

    You damage their vehicle or property


Third party, fire and theft covers you for the above and will also pay to repair or replace your own car if it is stolen, or damaged or destroyed by fire.

However, third party policies won't pay to repair any other type of damage to your car.

The most commonly purchased option is comprehensive cover. It covers all of the above, plus 

Personal belongings cover

Uninsured driver protection

Guaranteed repairs

Replacement locks

Windscreens

and more.

All new John Lewis Car Insurance policies provide comprehensive cover.

*If you have 4 or more years' no claims bonus, you can make up to 2 fault claims in a 3 year period without your no claims bonus being affected. However no claims bonus protection does not protect the overall price of your policy and the price of your policy may increase following an accident even if you weren't at fault.
