  • Accidental damage cover
    Scratched or dented your car? We pay for repairs so it's as good as it was before the accident

  • Uninsured driver promise
    If the other driver is not insured and the accident's not your fault, you keep your no claim discount and there's no excess to pay - as long as you have the details of the other vehicle and driver
  • Misfuelling cover
    Accidentally filled your petrol or diesel car with the wrong fuel? It happens. We pay to drain and flush your fuel tank, as well as cover the damage to the car's engine
  • European cover
    Get the same level of cover as you have in the UK in the EU for up to 180 days a year. Perfecto!
  • Vandalism promise
    If your car is vandalised and you have to claim, you'll keep your no claim discount - you'll just need to pay your excess
  • Replacement child car seats
    We'll replace your child car seats if your car has been in an accident - even if there's no apparent damage
  • New locks and keys
    If your keys are lost or stolen. After all, accidents happen
 

Have an electric MINI? All this is included as standard...

  • Recovery to the nearest chargepoint 
    Run out of charge in the UK? We'll recover you to the nearest chargepoint. We also have a fleet of vehicles we use in partnership with AFF the national roadside electric vehicle charging assistance company, which can recharge your vehicle and get you on the road again. This won’t affect your NCD and there’s no excess to pay
  • Cover for charging cables
    Charging cables, wall boxes and adaptors are covered for accidental damage, fire and theft
  • Battery cover
    Battery cover for accidental damage, fire and theft – even if you’re leasing it separately from the car
  • Over the air monthly updates (OTA)
    OTA updates are covered as standard when you insure your electric vehicle with us, but if you or the previous owner paid for additional performance upgrades affecting speed or acceleration, we'll need to know. You'll only need to tell us once and not everytime you upgrade.


And if you choose our optional hire car cover:

  • We’ll provide the use of an electric or hybrid hire car if your green machine is off the road

Mini Safety features

Most newer MINIs have a number of beneficial safety features

Things like...

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a smart safety system that automatically applies the car's brakes if the driver doesn't react quickly enough to a hazard ahead, the system can help avoid or mitigate potential collisions.
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) - if you start to veer off course, DSC adjusts the engine torque and applies brake force to individual wheels where needed to help get the car back under control.
  • Runflat tyres have reinforced, heat resistant rubber side walls to keep their shape in the event of a puncture, preventing a blowout and allowing you to keep driving at speeds up to 50 MPH, so you can get home or to a place where you can get the tyre changed.
  • Dynamic brake lights - if you have to brake in an emergency, the dynamic brake lights will start to flash, alerting the vehicles behind you that you're braking hard. Your hazard warning lights then automatically activate.
  • Rear view cameras and Park Assist - the rear view camera adds helpful markings to the dashboard screen to help you park. Park Assist helps you find a space, then automatically guides your Mini into it - without you needing to touch the steering wheel.

Electric Mini

So, where do MINI stand on electric cars? 

Here's the lowdown:

  • 3- door Hatch
    MINI have recently launched their fully electric 3-door Hatch which boasts a driving range of 145 miles on a single charge, better still costing just 4p per mile.

    The 3-door hatch can be charged in 35 minutes and there's an 8 year (or 100,00 miles) warranty on the battery.
