How can we assist with your insurance needs?

The requirement

Do I need insurance in Ireland?

If you want to drive a car, van, motorbike or another vehicle such as a truck, taxi, or campervan on the road in Ireland then you will need insurance as it is a legal requirement. Whilst home insurance, life insurance, business insurance and other types of insurance are not a required by law in Ireland, they are strongly recommended in order to cover you and your business in the event that something could go wrong, such as accidents, damage, theft or vandalism. The answer therefore will very much depend on your insurance needs, requirements and personal circumstances.

The cost

What impacts the cost of insurance?

The cost of your insurance will vary depending on the product, your needs, the risks involved to the insurer, and your circumstances. Some of the main factors impacting the price of your insurance could include: your location, if you live in a higher crime rate area you will usually pay more; your age, if you are younger you can be seen as higher risk; your claims history, if you have a strong no claims record you could save money; and your occupation, if you work in a riskier business the cost of your premium could be higher.

save money

How do I save on my insurance?

You can take a number of simple actions to try and reduce the cost of your insurance to include: building up your no claims bonus; increasing your excess; pay your insurance in one go as opposed to paying monthly; review your policy add-ons to ensure you are not paying for extras that you do not need; and shop around and compare insurance quotes online. It is very important to discuss the details of your policy with your broker in full. Remember, the cheapest policy is not always the right policy for you.
