Most Common Car Insurance Questions
However, there are some general questions that we get asked a lot, and because of that, I thought why not come up with a blog post that aims to answers some of these common car insurance questions.
Consider this a car insurance FAQ of sorts. Even better, I’ve decided to keep it really simple, with all answers in 10 words or less.
Let’s get on with the questions and answers:
