ING Car Insurance
What types of car insurance does ING offer?
At the time of writing, ING offers three types of car insurance:
- Comprehensive: This type covers your liability for damage caused by the car to other people’s property, as well as essential repairs, emergency transport and accommodation and personal effects, among other things. It also provides cover for the vehicle up to a predetermined amount.
- Third Party Property, Fire and Theft: This provides the same cover as Third Party Property Only, plus cover for loss or damage to the car if it is stolen or catches fire only. It also includes a hire car following theft, guaranteed repairs, towing costs and uninsured motorist damage.
- Third Party Property Only: This covers your liability for damage caused by the car to other people’s property. This policy type also includes a repair guarantee and cover for uninsured motorist damage.

What additional features does ING offer on their car insurance products?
ING allows you to add a number of optional extras to a Comprehensive policy, such as a car hire following an accident (as opposed to a hire car following a no fault accident, which is included), reduced excess for window glass, your choice of repairer and no claim discount protection.
All ING car insurance policies include 24/7 claims.

To take out a car insurance policy, ING advises you to fill out an online questionnaire to generate a quote. You can then review your quote, add optional benefits and select a policy start date.

ING allows Comprehensive car insurance policy owners to nominate a higher or lower excess. This may affect the cost of your car insurance premiums. A higher excess will typically result in a lower premium, while a lower excess will typically result in a higher premium.
You can lodge a claim with ING online through the ING website or over the phone.
When lodging a claim, ING suggests that you gather as much information as possible about the incident before you start the claims process. Some things that might come in handy include:
- your policy number
- details of the incident, including time and place
- other drivers’ names, addresses, vehicle registration numbers and insurance details
- any witnesses’ names and contact details
- details of any tow-truck company used
- Police report number and/or photographs of the damage and scene (if possible)
Your ING car insurance policy will renew automatically each year and the renewal premium will be charged to your nominated account. ING sends a renewal offer at least 14 days before the policy’s renewal date, so that you can review the premium and excess for the new period, your details and notice any changes to the terms and conditions of your policy.
If you do not wish to renew your policy, you must contact ING before the renewal date.
Consider comparing car insurance policies before simply renewing the same policy, so that you continue to get the cover you need, as well as value for money:
