Why is this right for me?

The Nurses and Midwives Car Insurance Scheme is the right choice for you because it is tailored to meet the specific needs of health professionals and their spouses/partners with car insurance benefits such as:

Comprehensive driving of other cars

Most car insurance policies only offer you third party cover when driving other cars.  The Nurses and Midwives Car Insurance Gold cover goes one step further and provides you with automatic comprehensive car insurance cover when driving other cars. The car must be a privately owned vehicle and you cannot have any share or financial interest in it. The vehicle value must not exceed €50,000 and the vehicles engine size must not exceed 3,500cc.

No Claims Discount Protection

Our Gold and Silver car insurance policies will automatically protect your No Claims Bonus in the event of fire, theft or windscreen claims so that you do not lose your No Claims Bonus which you have carefully built up. On Gold policies you can also make up to two unlimited claims within a three year period excluding fire, theft or windscreen claims without losing your no-claims discount.

Step Back No Claims Bonus Protection

Step Back No Claims Bonus Protection is included as standard on our Gold and Silver policies and will cover you in the event of a claim on your car insurance by stepping your No Claims Bonus back by 3 years.

Malicious damage cover on work grounds 

You will be covered for malicious damage occurring while your car is parked in the designated parking area on work grounds (subject to an excess of €125) on our Gold policies.

24-hour breakdown rescue, driveway assistance & windscreen cover

Our Gold, Silver and Bronze car insurance policies come with breakdown rescue and driveway assistance in the event that your car breaks down at home or away from home.  Windscreen cover is included as standard on Gold and Silver policies.

DAS Legal Protection Cover
