    I need to quite insurance


    This is my first car insurance with Budget Insurance and my husband had an accident with the car now at the end of November 2015. Before this we had been driving a car supplied by a relative. The car we were using is is still in our relatives name and the insurance is still in their name and we no longer have that car. Whether we were noted as main drivers of the relatives car is quite irrelevant, as any claim would have been all done in the relatives name through their Insurance company. We then bought a new chevrolet aveo 1.6L in January 2015 and this is when we selected to go with Budget Insurance. In the light of the accident and this being the first time Insurance for us, we would still like to see the best monthly, full comprehensive, premium which you can possibly give us.Thank you. Hanlie Velthuysen.

    I took a policy with prime meridian for my new Kia Rio…. It was my first car and I wanted the best for it and for me as I was planning to keep it with me for a long way…. After a year I was involved in a car accident and I called my insurance. I was told that I was not going be covered coz I dd not take a comprehensive cover. Weired thing was me paying R935 every month for nothing. Prime meridian offered to pay R12000 but on a condition that i pay an amount of R90000. I did not have that much money lying around and i thought having car insurance was for cases like these. I am now with out a car and have to bare taxi bills as I keep traveling from town to town for medical issues due to the accident. I wish someone had warned me about taking a policy with this insurance.
