Benefits available under your Comprehensive Motor Insurance Policy
At RSA our primary focus is on our customers and meeting their individual and local needs. For an additional small amount added to your annual premium, we have put together two packages for you to choose from:
- The Silver Package
- The Gold Package
You may contact us and we will be happy to refer you to any one of our agents to explain these benefits further.
PROTECTED NO CLAIMS DISCOUNT
We all work towards saving money by building our No Claims Discount and having an accident does not necessarily mean losing it. Under the Silver or Gold, you will not lose your NCD even if you have a claim during your period of insurance.
Both Plans offer compensation if you or your spouse are injured in a car accident. We will pay you or your legal representative if:
- Death occurs-$10,000
- There is loss or loss of use of one or more limbs – $5,000
- There is loss of sight in one or more eyes – $5,000
LOSS OF USE
Have less worry about how you will manage if your car is involved in an accident. Our Plans will pay the rental costs for a replacement car for seven days subjects to a maximum of $500.00 within a policy period, as long as the rental is from a recognized self-drive vehicle operator.
Additional benefit available under The Gold Package
Under this option, we will pay for your membership at Emergency Road Services who will assist you in the event that you break down, run out of gas, have a flat tire or are stranded in any other way.
