Why insure your car with us?

1. Even the best drivers can cause accidents. But don’t worry; your premium won’t go through the roof if you do.

We no longer apply a no-claims bonus system. Instead, we reward good drivers with benefits, such as a joker and a discount on their third-party liability insurance.

No-claims joker
KBC Brussels rewards you with a joker after not filing any at-fault claims for five consecutive years. If you do end up in an accident in which you were at fault, you can use your joker to avoid a premium increase. You can earn back your joker if you do not file any claims for five consecutive years and provided you were insured during this period. This way your premium stays the same in the unfortunate event that you are involved in an accident one time only.

Discount on your third-party liability insurance
Your good driving habits will also earn you a 10% discount on your compulsory third-party liability insurance. If you cause an accident but don’t have a joker, this discount will be forfeited for a full year. You will receive the discount again if you do not file any claims for one full year.

2. If your son or daughter is learning to drive, they are covered as well.

Your car insurance also has certain benefits for your children as they learn to drive:

  • KBC Brussels Start2Drive cover allows you to include your children in your car insurance as they learn to drive. And no extra premium applies.
  • KBC MyFirstCar gives your children their own inexpensive car insurance in their own name.

3. Attractive lower premium if you drive less than 10.000 km per year

Since driving less reduces the risk of accidents, you pay a lower premium if you drive less than 10 000 km per year.

4. Life-long insurance guarantee: ensures that you remain insured later in life

If you’re aged between 55 and 65, have been a client with KBC Insurance for five years or more and haven’t had an accident in the last five years, you are entitled to our life-long insurance guarantee. You can rest assured that your compulsory third-party liability insurance will not be cancelled – even in the event of a claim.

5. Just bought a new car? We will take care of the paperwork for you

If you are taking out insurance for your new car, KBC Brussels will have your registration plate and all the papers, including the international motor vehicle insurance certificate (‘green card’), ready in your car when you collect it from the garage. All you need to do is pick up the keys and drive off. Interested? Read more here.

6. Attractive lower premium for new cars

Since new cars are equipped with more safety features than older ones, KBC Brussels applies an attractive lower premium to all new cars. This applies to the premium for both fully comprehensive insurance and compulsory third-party liability insurance.

7. Work and take out your insurance online

Our handy simulator at the bottom of the screen lets you work out the price of your car insurance. You can take out cover online straightaway, without having to go to your branch, and with us, you're not on your own when it comes to claiming.

There's always a KBC Brussels Insurance agent in your neighbourhood who will be happy to help you with your claim. That includes insurance you’ve taken out with us online.

What cover can you take out?

1. The basics: compulsory third-party liability

If you want to drive your car on public roads, you are required to take out Third-Party Liability insurance as a bare minimum. This insurance covers any loss, damage or injury you cause to others if you are at fault. In such cases, any damage to your own car is not insured.

2. Extra protection with semi-comprehensive or fully comprehensive insurance

You can extend your car insurance for more protection with semi- or fully comprehensive insurance.

What’s the difference between semi- and fully comprehensive insurance?

With our fully comprehensive insurance, you are insured for virtually any claim, unless it is included on the limited list of claims not covered by the policy. Our semi-comprehensive insurance covers most claim events not caused by you.

The following table shows a comparison of the most common forms of cover:

3. Legal assistance

There’s always the possibility that you’ll end up in a dispute following an accident. In this case, our legal assistance insurance has you covered. For example, in the event of disagreement regarding the compensation by the other party or concerning repair work, the insurer will do everything possible to recover your loss or damage – either through out-of-court settlement or litigation.

4. Driver accident insurance

Did you know that, as a driver, you are not covered for any physical injuries you sustain in an accident if you caused it? The compulsory third-party liability insurance covers only the damage you cause to third parties.

This is where our driver accident insurance can help. If you sustain injuries in an accident you caused, your insurer will cover your medical expenses.

5. Roadside assistance and personal assistance

Roadside assistance insurance and personal assistance insurance provide cover if you’re stuck on the road due to a breakdown or accident – either in Belgium or abroad. Personal assistance insurance also covers any medical expenses you incur while travelling.

6. Car insurance for children with a provisional driving licence

If your child is learning to drive in your car, don’t take any risks and include them in your car insurance. Your insurance premium will remain unchanged for a period of 24 months, while you benefit from an additional driver being covered under your insurance.
