DPL Insurance Limited Product


Mechanical Breakdown Insurance

Autosure Mechanical Breakdown Insurance policies are designed to help protect you and your vehicle against the cost of sudden or unforeseen breakdown.

Payment Protection Insurance (PPI)

The main risk with having finance is if something happens to your ability to earn money. PPI protects you, your family and your credit rating if the worst happens.

Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance (GAP)

This covers some of the difference between a total loss payout on your vehicle by your comprehensive insurer and the balance owing under your credit contract.

Car Insurance

We understand that sinking feeling you get when something happens to your vehicle. Our Car Insurance policy will help you pay for those nasty repairs and get you back on your wheels again.
