The Easter season has long been known as a dangerous time to be on South Africa’s roads - and it’s only getting riskier.
Last year saw a 14% increase in the number of fatalities due to car accidents over the Easter weekend. As the start of the many public holidays and long weekends approach, it’s a good idea to make sure that you have all the cover you might need to see you through the aftermath of an accident.
“People often think that every eventuality is covered by their ‘comprehensive’ car insurance,” says Vera Nagtegaal, Executive Head of Hippo.co.za.
“Sadly, this is not always the case, so you should always speak to your insurer about whether or not you have the cover you need, based on your specific lifestyle and requirements.”
