A survey carried out by national bank, Allied Irish Bank, found that an overwhelming majority of Irish drivers choose Fully Comprehensive (FC) cover when taking out a Car Insurance policy

AIB’s survey which was conducted online last month revealed that 83% of the 420 respondents said they have comprehensive car insurance. Out of the remaining participants, just 13% opted for Third Party, Fire and Theft (TPFT) and only 1 in 20 people went for the most basic Third Party Only (TPO) cover.

The research also highlighted that only a third of those who took part in AIB’s survey ever made a claim and that around 2 in 5 availed of a Direct Debit scheme. Benefits were another focal point of the survey with respondents stressing the importance of having features such as windscreen cover and no claims bonus protection. Indeed, protecting a no-claims bonus was the most important insurance benefit for over half of all respondents.
