No - at Bingle we don't offer agreed value. We only offer market value cover, and only for our Comprehensive Car Insurance policies. By keeping insurance simple, we're able to keep our prices affordable and still offer great value car insurance.
(Just note, market value doesn't apply for our Third Party Property Damage Insurance. This type of policy doesn't cover damage to your car. It only covers your legal liability up to $20m for damage caused to other people's vehicles and property.)
If your car is up to 3 years old you can add New for Old cover as an optional extra if you take up Comprehensive Car Insurance. With New for Old cover, if your car is a write-off, we'll replace it with a brand-new car of the same make and model, where available.

As mentioned at the start of this article, people generally start to be concerned about the value of their car if it has been 'written-off'. Your car may be deemed by us to be a write-off if it's stolen or is damaged by an insured event and can't be repaired, or the cost of repairs make it uneconomical to repair your car.
If this happens, we'd pay you a total loss payment based on the market value of your car (minus any unpaid excess, unpaid premiums, unused rego and CTP, and applicable Income Tax Credits). Then, you could use this payment to buy a new car. Or, if you hold our New For Old cover, we'd replace your car with a brand-new car of the same make and model, where available.
