Does Liability Insurance Cover Theft Overview Does liability insurance cover theft? Unfortunately, many of us have had to ask ourselves that question from experience. It’s bad enough to be at the location where you last parked your car only to find out it’s been stolen.

We cover more than liability insurance and car incidents such as theft at Pitsas Insurances.
What is a car insurance deductible? It is the amount you must pay whenfiling an insurance claim. For instance, if your standard deductible is €400 and your repair bill is €3,000, you’ll have to pay €400, with the insurance company paying the remainder. Bear in mind that the deductible only applies under certain conditions. For instance, you must pay it when you or someone who is covered by your insurance is driving your vehicle, and you or they have caused the accident.
Insuring your car is required by law and while it constitutes a significant expense that many justifiably try to reduce, even a minor accident can soon make us realise how important insurance can be. Despite that, most of us wait until the last few days before it expires to do some research, and that is usually only related to car insurance prices. In most cases, this is hardly enough to help us realise if we've got the right coverage for us.
