Who And What We Cover

What we cover


Car insurance comes in two basic types. The biggest difference between the two is that one protects you and your car in an accident, the other doesn't. But it's not quite that simple, so here's a quick overview of what's covered.

Comprehensive car insurance includes:

  • Repair or replacement of your car if it is damaged or stolen
  • Protection against injury to you or other people
  • Protection against damage to other peoples' cars and property
  • Windscreen repair or replacement
  • Cover if your car stereo is damaged or stolen

Third party fire and theft car insurance includes:

  • Protection against damage to other peoples' cars and property - but not your own
  • Protection against injury to other people
  • Repair or replacement of your car if it is stolen or damaged by fire

When choosing insurance Its4women.ie we include both covers as standard. Full details of cover is detailed in our policy wording by clicking HERE.

  4. the use of the vehicle is covered in the certificate of insurance
  5. cover is not provided by any other insurance
  6. you are not connected in any way with the Motor or Licence Trade

  8. the vehicle is in a roadworthy condition; and
  9. you still have your vehicle and it is not damaged beyond cost-effective repair
  10. the vehicle driven must be of the same size and cylinder capacity as the insured vehicle or alternatively no higher than a 2000cc vehicle

How to add business use to your policy


If you use your car while you're working, rather than just driving it to work and back, you'll need business use cover.

We don't offer business use cover as standard, but it is something we provide *.

Business use cover can be taken out at the start of a policy, or added at any point by using your online account - MyIts4women. Once business use has been added, it will be shown on your insurance certificate.

Business use is restricted to driving for your business, or the business of your spouse/common law partner.

* Certain restrictions apply.

Adding business cover is likely to result in your premium rising. But, as there's no admin fee if you make the changes online, it's already saved you money.

Written-off vehicles come in four different classes - Categories A, B, C and D. We do not insure any of them.
