Loss of Personal Belongings Cover in Car Insurance

Posted on Oct, 2020

With a comprehensive car insurance policy, you can be sure that your financial losses get covered or at least minimized. But a comprehensive car insurance policy will insure only the vehicle and not any belongings that may have been in the car. This means that you have to pay the loss of belongings from your pocket. In such a scenario, a loss of belongings cover can be of great help. Through this add-on cover, you can insure your belongings at an additional premium.
