1. What is Handbag Cover?

How would you feel if you had your handbag stolen from your car?  What if it was damaged in an accident?  Well, we know how important a woman’s handbag is which is why every Model Driver car insurance policy comes with Handbag Cover as standard.

If you make a theft, attempted theft or accidental damage claim on your car insurance policy, you may receive additional cover up to £300 for the replacement or repair of your handbag and insured contents if it is lost or damaged.
