Car owners know this. They need to present a Compulsory Third Party Liability coverage (CTPL) in addition to their comprehensive car insurance coverage before they can register their vehicles. Why? First, let’s understand what these two are. CTPL provides compensation to the third party in case of a car accident. Comprehensive car insurance can also be purchased for extra protection, but isn't required by law. Some comprehensive car insurance policies do not cover personal injury or death of the insured, or any injuries or death of family and employees. The Car Protect Package from Standard Insurance does.
Car Protect provides seven (7) major benefits:
- CTPL – this is the mandatory requirement of the government in the registration of your vehicle. As earlier mentioned, it compensates the third party in case of an accident.

- Excess Bodily Injury – this supplements the CTPL because it covers bodily injury or death by the assured.
- Voluntary Third-Party Property Damage – damage to property owned by one or more third parties arising from a car accident caused by the assured’s vehicle is covered by a Car Protect comprehensive car insurance .
