Significant Features Of Our Gold Car Insurance Product

Depending on the terms, exceptions and conditions of this policy, the following will apply:

1 Windscreen Cover

If you use our aligned windscreen repairers there is no limit on cover. A limit of €225 for any single event will be applicable if any other repairer is used. Any payment will have no effect on your no claims discount, and we will not ask you to pay any excess if you claim.

2 No Claim Discount Protection: Fire/Theft/Windscreen

Any payment we make for fire, theft, or windscreen claims will not affect your no claim discount.

3 Step Back No Claim Discount

If you make a single claim or one arises during any period of insurance, we will reduce your no claim discount by three years e.g. 50% to 20%, 40% to 10%, 30% or less to nil.

4 Protected No-Claim Discount

(automatically included)

You may make up to two unlimited claims within a three year period without losing your no-claim discount. We will not take account of claims for windscreen breakage, fire or theft. When you have availed of the two claims in a three year period protection provided under this cover, you will not qualify for further protected no-claim discount for at least three years from the following renewal. What this means is that Aviva Insurance Ireland DAC will remove the protection for any further claim i.e. a third claim in a three year period will reduce your no claims discount in accordance with the step-back clause opposite. You will not qualify for NCD protection again until you are claims free for three years.

Table 1 below explains this further and will apply to claims that result in damage to your car, third party injury or damage to third party property, vandalism/malicious damage claims that occur outside the confines of a designated parking area for nurses provided by your employer, medical expenses or emergency treatment claims arising out of an accident, claim for new car replacement, car value top-up or loss of or damage to the car caused by incorrectly fuelling the car.

After 3 claims within a 3 year period, you will have (See Notes 1 and 2) 20%

After 4 claims within a 3 year period, you will have (See Notes 1, 2 and 3) 0%

Note 1: At the time you reach this point you will not qualify for no claim discount protection again until you are claims free for three years.

Note 2: At the time you reach this point you will not qualify for step-back no claim discount again until you are claims free for two years.

13 Personal Belongings Cover

We will pay up to €500 for any one event for any loss of or damage to personal belongings in the car cause by fire, accident or theft (not including certain items such as money, stamps, documents, jewellery, mobile phones, iPads, laptops, etc.). A €100 excess applies but there will be no effect on your No Claim Discount.

We will pay €26,000 in the event of death, loss of sight, of an arm or leg, and will pay €130 for each day spent as an inpatient in hospital for up to 20 days. You are covered while getting in or out of a private car, or any train, bus, taxi, aircraft, boat, ship or hovercraft (as a fare paying passenger).

15 Fire Brigade Charges

We will pay up to €1,000 to cover the cost of fire brigade charges which you have to pay as a result of the fire brigade being called to control or put out a fire in your car, and to remove you or your passengers from the car. We will pay this benefit only if there is a valid claim on your policy for the event.

16 Replacement Lock Cover

Provides cover for replacing door, boot, ignition, steering lock and lock transmitter, and the central locking interface if your keys or lock transmitter are lost or stolen and any person who may have your keys or transmitter is likely to know where you keep your car. There is no excess and any incident under this section has no effect on your No Claim Discount.

17 New Car Concession

If your car is less than one year old when stolen (and not recovered), or when damaged (in a single incident) resulting in a repair or reinstatement cost of more than 50% of the current Republic of Ireland list price of the car when new, we will offer to replace the car with a new vehicle of the same specification (make/model), provided it is available in the Republic of Ireland.

18 Radio/Audio Equipment/Satellite Navigation Systems

We provide cover for loss or damage to radio, hi-fi, car phone or CB equipment up to €1,000.

This cover only applies to drivers that qualify for the driving of other cars benefit.

20 Car Value Top-Up

If your car is no longer economical to repair, cannot be repaired, or has been stolen and not recovered, we will pay you the market value of your car at the time of loss plus €1,500. This benefit will not apply if your car is replaced as new under ‘new car replacement’; if your car is 4 years old or more at the time of the loss; under the driving of other cars benefit, and to any car temporarily covered under the policy. The most we will pay is one car value top-up in a single period of insurance. If you have insured your car for less than the current market value (at the time of loss), we will reduce the amount we will pay you in line with the declared value that appears in your schedule.

If you make a claim for a road traffic accident that is not your fault and the driver of the other car involved in the accident is not insured, you will not lose your No Claim Discount. This benefit is only available on comprehensive policies and an excess applies.
