What do we offer?
What Does Comprehensive Insurance Offer?
Comprehensive cover insures against any accident that you may have, whether it’s your fault or not. This includes damage caused to your car when it is unattended, such as a vandalism incident or a hit and run. However, whether or not it is your fault, claims can result in loss of No Claims Bonus, so check before you claim. Comprehensive cover also covers your legal liability to third parties (including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault). The cover extends to fire damage to your car, or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your car.
What Does Third Party, Fire and Theft Insurance Offer?
Your legal liability to third parties is covered (including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault). The cover also extends to fire damage to your car, or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your car.
What Does Third Party Only Insurance Offer?
Your legal liability to third parties is covered (including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault). There is no cover for damage to your car from any cause whatsoever. This complies with the minimum legal requirements of the Road Traffic Act and very little more.
Breakdown Cover Provided by the RAC
We know you want great value breakdown cover from a name you can trust, which is why Vavista has partnered with the RAC. The RAC Patrols fix 4 out of 5 vehicles at the roadside within 30 minutes on average, so you can get back on the road, fast.

How to get Car Insurance
Getting a quote for your car insurance doesn’t have to take all day. Make sure you have the following items to hand to speed up the process. We have made it quick and easy for you to compare car insurance so you can get the best car insurance policy for you.
- Your vehicle’s registration number will give us all the information we need to get you a quote but don’t worry if you don’t know it, we have a ‘I don’t know my registration number’ option. We can still find your car, but you will need to know the make model and year and we will do the rest of the work from there.
- Information about yourself and any other named drivers. This includes full names, Date of Birth, driving licence and any information about any claims or convictions in the last five years.
- It’s no secret that a no claims bonus helps to reduce the cost of your policy, that’s why many people call it a no claims discount. If you have built up (not claimed on your car insurance in a year or more) a No Claims Discount you will need to know how many years this is for. Your previous car insurer will know this if you don’t.
- Let us know when you would like your policy to start. This is important as it may affect your premium.
We want to make sure that you are full equipped with all the knowledge you will need before purchasing car insurance.
