No one wants the inconvenience of being without a car. With a courtesy car from Saga car insurance you can still get around while your car is being repaired.
If you’ve owned a car for a long time, it’s hard to remember how you ever managed without it. Commutes to work, trips to do the food shop, popping to the coast for a weekend break. Cars are so vital for getting around, it can be incredibly stressful if you’re suddenly without one. Thankfully, having a courtesy car with your insurance cover can help with that.

You also have the option to add replacement car extension cover, which means that you’ll be able to get a courtesy car if your car is stolen or written off. This includes an automatic £100 cash benefit to help you pay for any extra costs.
You’ll get a small manual transmission hatchback up to 1200cc, such as a Ford KA. Or an automatic if that’s what you normally drive. And don’t worry – the courtesy car will be covered by your existing policy so you’ll already be insured to drive it.
It's simple, if you have Comprehensive cover and you car is involved in an accident, we’ll give you a car to keep you mobile while yours is being repaired.
