Ageas Private Car

A driving force in private motor insurance  

We think you’ll agree – change is good when it’s making your life easier and giving your customers improved benefits and more competitive premiums.

It’s good to make changes that have a positive impact for our customers. It’s even better if those product developments help you, our brokers, too. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce some forthcoming changes to our private motoring policies. 

We’ll soon be offering one new policy – ‘Ageas Private Car’ – which should make it quicker and easier to choose a comprehensive motoring policy for your private customers. 

In time, this new product will replace our existing policies (Motor Guard and Optima Car) although, as you’d expect, we will carry on accepting mid-term adjustments. We’d like Ageas Private Car to become your go-to product for all motor customers – why not try us and see!

Getting started with Ageas Private Car

If you know a little bit about our motoring policies already, you’ll recognise these improvements:

  • A granular, peril-rated approach for more competitive premiums
  • Insurer Hosted Pricing – giving you more up-to-date rates, faster
  • A more competitive underwriting footprint – more vehicles and customers covered
  • And even more clarity in our customer-facing documents

And these are just some of the new limits we’ll be including:

  • A wider age bracket for ‘any driver cover’
  • Vehicle values up to £75k (previously, £60k)
  • An increase to the loss/theft of keys limit to £750
  • Cover for personal business use (Class 1) for common-law-spouses

We think this more competitive underwriting focus could really make a difference to your motoring customers.

Unless we’ve arranged another level for you, commissions on this product will default to 12.5%. As soon as it’s available, our new Ageas private Car product will be easy to spot. Just look out for "Ageas Private Car" on your quote picklist.

How to access Ageas Private Car

At the moment, Ageas Private Car is only traded via CDL and SSP. We’ll make it available via other software houses in the coming months, and we’ll let you know just as soon as that happens.

We’ll be making Ageas Private Car live across all CDL & SSP brokers in the (very) near future. While we complete our testing & activation process with CDL & SSP, you may be able to see the product on your quote picklist – however it will return a decline until the product is live. Keep an eye out for future emails and updates on our Ageas Broker website for official launch date.
