Spread the cost
If it's more convenient, you can pay your insurance premium in instalments.
Línea Directa offers three types of insurance with different types of cover:
Third party insurance:
Covers the physical and material damage that a driver might cause to a third party, regardless of who is at fault.
Extended third party insurance:
This insurance also includes repair of windscreens, fire and theft, compared to third party insurance.
The most complete insurance. This covers damage to the insured vehicle and personal and material damage to a third party.
Can I temporarily suspend my insurance policy?
The policies have an annual duration and they cannot be suspended. According to Spanish law, a vehicle must be insured even if it is not being used on public roads.
Can I split my insurance payment?
Yes, with Línea Directa you can pay in a number of different ways, whichever is most convenient for you.
What is the excess?
It is an option that allows you to bring down the price of the insurance, where you can cover part of the risk yourself.
What is Compulsory Third-Party Liability?
All car drivers and owners must have taken out this cover as part of their insurance policy (it is legally mandatory). If you are involved in a traffic accident, any possible bodily or material damage you may have caused to third parties will be covered by the Compulsory Third-Party Liability.
What is Voluntary Third-Party Liability?
Voluntary Third-Party Liability is an extension of Compulsory Third-Party Liability by insurance companies to cover damages that are over the maximum amount imposed by law to cover third parties' expenses in the event of an accident.
Can I take out the replacement vehicle cover with any policy model?
Yes, and we think it's highly recommended. That way, you can ensure that whatever happens, you will have a means to travel if you could not use your vehicle. You can have a replacement vehicle for five days if you have an accident, 15 days for total loss and 30 days if your vehicle is stolen.
Can the fine management service be included in vehicle insurance policies?
Yes, it is included as an optional guarantee on all policies. If it is included, Línea Directa will be responsible for appealing your fines, both fines published in official gazettes and fines due to violations committed after taking out your insurance. If you lose all the points on your licence, Línea Directa will pay up to a limit of €500 of the price of the road awareness and re-education course, as well as the test fees to recover your driving licence.
What does the legal service guarantee?
If you are a Línea Directa policyholder, then you can contact a specialised lawyer by telephone or email to advise you on legal questions and doubts and claims that may arise. You will be able to ask questions about housing, family issues, tax matters, any doubts about the vehicle, administrative procedures or typical situations that crop up daily.
Does the 24-hour helpdesk work abroad?
Yes, it will there for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year anywhere in the world.
What is the mechanical assistance service?
It is a service that you can include within your travel assistance cover, as long as it is not a motorcycle. You can receive expert technical and mechanical assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by telephone. Here are some examples:
