Do I get a discount if I have an existing car policy (i.e. now have two cars)?

To be eligible for our multi-policy discount, you’ll need to have your contents insured with State plus one other qualifying policy. We’ll apply this discount to every policy that qualifies for it. View full answer

If I have car insurance with State, am I covered for windscreen damage?

Cover for windscreen damage can be added to all car policies, including, comprehensive, third party, fire and theft and third party only policies. When you add the windscreen extension cover to your policy, you can claim for any accidental damage to your windscreen, windows, sunroof, and driving lights without having to pay an excess.

Do I have to list everyone who drives my vehicle?

We recommend that you name any driver who’s under 25, or is likely to drive your vehicle on a regular basis. In the event of an accident, young drivers who aren’t named on your policy will pay a higher excess than those who are. View full answer
