Choose Star to protect your vintage love affair

We protect vintage cars and restoration projects.

Star Enthusiast Vintage Car Insurance was created specifically for history buffs who are passionate about vintage vehicles. It’s for vehicles manufactured between 1919 and 1930. We take extra-special care to craft a policy that considers every aspect of your fine investment. This means learning about your car’s living arrangements, if it’s a work in progress, being restored, or if and how it visits club rallies and events. By ‘looking under the bonnet’ we can determine your vehicle’s true value and how you use it to give you a policy that is tailored to meet your needs.

We’re here to assist with your mission.

Extraordinary insurance for exceptional vehicles.

When you want superstar insurance for your vintage vehicle or restoration project, Star Insurance Specialists are the experts. We hold a special place in our hearts for vintage cars and their custodians. We’ve made it our business to fully understand what you need in an insurance policy.

Our company’s purpose is to create extraordinary policies for Kiwis with exceptional vehicles. 

You have a vehicle that’s in a class of its own. So we don’t let algorithms determine your policy or its price because you’re not like everyone else on our roads. Instead, we work closely with you to determine the real value of your vehicle and its use. By engaging with you at a deeper level we can craft a custom insurance policy that considers everything you need and protects you in the real world. 

Another big benefit with Star Insurance is we handle everything from quotes to claims in-house. As niche insurance specialists you only deal with decision makers who are judged every day, by our management and customers, on our ability to provide the best Cover, Price, Support and Claims. And that’s exactly what we do. 

With a Star Insurance Enthusiast Vintage Car insurance policy you’re in fine company. Some of the vintage vehicles we currently protect include Model A Fords, Model T Fords, Rolls-Royce 40/50 Silver Ghost, Bugatti Type 36, Alfa 6C 1750, Austin 7, Bentley Speed Six, and more.

Frequently asked questions.

So what do you think? Got some questions?

  • Yes, photos are very helpful as they can show our assessing team what has been damaged before the vehicle is seen by a repairer. Please obtain accident site photos only if it is safe to do so.

  • It is very difficult to find insurance for a vehicle whilst you are participating or competing in a motor race. It is more common to be able to purchase race car insurance that provides insurance whilst the race car is being transported to motorsport events or being stored between events. Costs can vary significantly based on the different values of race cars, the value of parts and accessories, where they are stored along with a number of other variables.

  • Proportionally to the value of the vehicle, vintage and classic car insurance costs can be significantly cheaper than standard car insurance. However insurance prices can vary due to the age of the driver, the experience of the driver and where the vehicle will be stored, the vintage car experience of the insurer along with other factors they may take into consideration.

  • You should advise your insurance company that you use your car every day. Many insurance companies can still insure classic cars that are used every day. Star Insurance Specialists design their insurance policies specifically tailored for your individual circumstances.

  • In short, there are none.

    We don’t restrict mileage on your policy as we rate vehicles on how they are used. We understand that some years you may do a big tour, where other years, your vehicle will hardly leave the garage. We don’t restrict kilometres but do ask that you give us an accurate picture of how you are using your vehicle.

  • Upon application, we can extend terms to provide you cover for certain approved track days. Every track day and driver is subject to application, and are monitored and approved on a case by case basis.

  • Usually cars manufactured before 1930 are considered vintage cars. Different insurers have different considerations. Star Insurance Specialists have insurance policies for vintage cars, antique cars and classic cars along with policies designed for younger cars but are used as project cars, enthusiast cars, and cars that are not driven every day.

     

  • Star Insurance Enthusiast has a comprehensive list of insurance benefits included in their Vintage Car, Classic Car and Enthusiast insurance policies. They also have specialist vehicle assessors covering New Zealand to ensure your vehicle is repaired correctly, using correct repair techniques and parts suitable to your vehicle.

“Ive found STAR to be quick and efficient, as well as providing competitive premiums / excesses and a sound product. I had to send an urgent quote request to STAR on a Friday at 4:50pm, I had terms back by 5pm and bound cover at 5:10pm. Most insurers and brokers wouldve been at the pub by that time and I didnt expect a reply and when it arrived, the client and myself were over the moon. Overall STAR are helpful, efficient and client focused.
