Most people are familiar with the Old Mutual Group for its retirement and pension funds, unit trusts and so on – that’s long-term insurance. But Old Mutual, through its own brand and subsidiaries, and brokers plus other partners, is a big short-term insurer. Old Mutual Car Insurance is one of the short-term insurance solutions that this diverse financial services firm offers. Most recently in a huge company restructuring, the Mutual & Federal brand has been incorporated into the newly formed “Old Mutual Insure”.
Old Mutual Car Insurance offers three basic insurance options. These three – Comprehensive car insurance, Third Party, Theft, and Fire insurance, and Third Party (only) insurance – are all common among the great majority of South Africa’s car insurance companies.
In effect, Old Mutual sets itself apart from the rather crowded environment by leveraging the expertise of its other product offerings, including risk management so that you have the best possible motor vehicle cover. With all three of these options, liability insurance comes as standard. This (liability or third party) insurance means that should you be in a car accident that results in the damage of another motor vehicle, Old Mutual Car Insurance will pay up.
The other party will receive the necessary amounts to repair, fix or replace his or her car or property. Your liability need not only be the replacement of the third party’s vehicle for example, but also any legal undertakings he might raise against you.
N.B. Your information is confidential, and will never be sold or rented to anyone. It is only used to provide you with the best possible insurance quote based on your personal criteria.
Paying your legal costs is just one way that Old Mutual seeks to benefit you. Other benefits are listed below –
- Car hire
- Credit shortfall
- 24/7 medical and emergency assistance
- 365 roadside assistance
Old Mutual car insurance doesn’t stop at passenger cars only. They offer cover for caravans, boats, motorbikes, and the valuables that may be inside these vehicles (and the latter can be taken as a separate policy). 4X4 Insurance cover for example, is a specialist type of insurance that Old Mutual only only on a comprehensive insurance policy.
Old Mutual is independent of the providers of our car insurance quotes that you will receive after you fill out our form, but it’s great alternative to know about. Car insurance is a numbers’ game and the lower your premiums the better, and this is achieved by diversifying your options.
The car insurance company has headquarters at Mutual Park in Cape Town and has a major office in Johannesburg, while the entire Old Mutual group is managed from London.
