Regent Insurance Website
On the Regent website you can find out more about its motoring products as well as client services.
This network functions through the motor vehicle dealerships - although the
company also deals through a certain number of vetted brokers. Despite the fact
that the core product is motor insurance, there are also a couple of personal
line insurance products, such as household goods insurance and small to medium
business cover. But the real meat of the offering is motor vehicle insurance.
Regent divides its products into 3 sectors. There is a personal motor
insurance line, a business motor insurance line, and a specialised motor
Starting with the personal insurance line we find a range of products. The
central product here is comprehensive motor insurance - this covers all cars, as
well as light delivery vehicles, motorbikes, caravans, trailers. It`s designed
to cover your vehicle for personal and business use. If you`re a motorcyclist
and you prefer to have a dedicated motorcycle insurance policy, this is
available as well. For all vehicles there are also value-added products in the
form of deposit cover, credit shortfall insurance and various types of roadside
and medical assistance packages.
On the business insurance side, there is commercial vehicle insurance for
heavy vehicles, which includes insurance for goods in transit, passenger
liability, commercial top-up insurance, and spillage and clean-up insurance. You
can also get a combined commercial and industrial policy that provides insurance
for small to medium commercial and industrial businesses in all classes of
insurance. In a clear response to market needs, there is also a dedicated policy
providing cover for commercial taxis.
There`s a whole host of specialised insurance products and services available
