Bidvest Insurance keeps your sweet ride safe.
A guaranteed vehicle warranty from Bidvest Insurance keeps your car covered.
Your vehicle warranty is your sanity
It alway happens when we least expect it: your car breaks down. Even if you’re pedantic about your car service history, fastidious with your logbook, and check your oil every day, breakdowns happen.
More than a manufacturing warranty
When your manufacturing warranty falls away, your vehicle becomes more prone to expensive breakdowns. The last thing you need is to be paying for expensive, unexpected repairs. Bidvest’s guaranteed vehicle warranty protects your pocket, and your car, against any mechanical or electrical breakdown.
Why do I need a car warranty?
You can’t be without your car. You need to get to work, pick your children up from school, and go about your day, with ease. Being without your car for extended periods of time could negatively affect your daily life and your budget.
