Car insurance in Northern Ireland

Customers in Northern Ireland can benefit from Direct Line car insurance too.

We provide cover for cars across the UK including England, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland.

To qualify for our car insurance your car must be registered at a UK address and customers in Northern Ireland must be over 22 years old.

For all customers who qualify for our car insurance we can provide two types of cover:

  • Comprehensive
  • Third party fire and theft

Residents in Northern Ireland can also benefit from our optional extras such as Guaranteed Hire Car Plus and Motor Legal Protection.

Our uninsured driver promise

Our uninsured driver promise means if you claim for an accident with an uninsured driver, providing it was not your fault, your no claims discount will not be affected and we’ll cover your excess. This promise is for comprehensive policyholders only. We will need the vehicle registration number and the make and model of the car the driver's details, if possible.


After passing their test, drivers under 26 in Northern Ireland may also be eligible for our black box insurance, DrivePlus. It can give safer drivers an upfront discount in their first year.

Business use

We don’t just provide cover for personal motor use, though. We can also give you cover if you use your car for business purposes – for example if you work from home in Northern Ireland and need to visit clients up and down the country or in the rest of the UK, or you need your car to make deliveries.

Things you need to know about Over 50s life insurance:
Premiums stop after your 90th birthday but you still enjoy cover for the rest of your life. In the first year, if you die from natural causes we will refund any premiums, or if you die as a result of an accident, we will pay your cash sum. After the first year regardless of the cause of death we will pay your cash sum. Depending on how long you live, the total sum paid in premiums may be more than the cash sum payable on death. If you stop paying your premiums before the end of your policy your cover will stop 30 days after your missed premium and you won’t get anything back. This isn’t a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Inflation will reduce the buying power of your cash sum in the future.
