Business or pleasure

THE Credit Crunch has hit everyone hard and there can't be a person out there who hasn't felt its impact. Personal finances are currently being re-assessed and regular run of the mill expenses like car insurance are being revisited with the hope of finding a cost saving. If you find a cheaper policy is it actually covering you how you need it to?

The most recent phenomenon in the “cheap and cheerful” world of car insurance is the very popular aggregator sites. Hit one site and get a quote from a large number of brokers. Very convenient and probably very cheap but what are you getting for your cash?

If you are using your car for travel to and from your regular place of work then you need to declare that as many policies don't cover commuting unless specified. Driving to another branch of your company, attending a training course and visiting clients all constitute business use which can increase your premium by 50 per cent.

This may sound fairly basic but if it isn't stated that you are using your car for work then you won't be suitably covered should you have a prang. A cheap quote isn't cheap if it doesn't cover you for what you need.

Westhill Insurance has a recently launched a new car insurance scheme which provides free business use so you can safety drive to work and not worry about any additional cost. With superb customer service Westhill can happily advise on what exactly you need and ensure you are getting what you are paying for.

This new insurance scheme has an all-new on-line form which is very slick and simple to use. You are asked a few simple questions about you and your car and before you know it your quotes are available. Westhill will even send you an email with the quotes to your inbox so you have time to consider all your options. As well as free business use you will also benefit from protected no claims bonus, three year premium fixing and much, much more.
