    yeah but there is no point in spending R80k on the car and then spending R1k on the car every month for the next 2-3 years. May as well take the damage if it happens.

    I would've pushed it off a cliff for you and only charged a 100k!

    Hi Andre

    Not true

    If you buy a vehicle from a dealer and they offer you a warranty they include it in your finance which is then paid over to the warranty company. Same as paying up front. You can however not take the warranty and go to the warranty company directly and then choose to pay upfront or a monthly option. The monthly option is available.

    That's how SA Warranties work anyway....

    My cover was included in the finance and I was told that only Hollard has the monthly payment option. If I understand you correctly you say that SA Warrenties now also have a monthly payment option (and I don't mean including it in your finance :-))?

    Hi Andre

    SA Warranties has had the monthly option for the past 8 years
    But I think you need to get it from then directly and not through a dealership.

    Obviously I'm not in Sales!
