Yes. If the vehicle is repairable and our approved repairer is utilised, every effort will be made to supply you with a courtesy car, subject to the conditions of the policy.
Will a claim affect my No Claims Bonus?
If the incident is not your fault and we make a full recovery from the responsible person, your no claims discount will be unaffected. However, if we are unable to recover the cost, your no claims discount will be reduced at the renewal of your policy*.
If the incident is your fault, your no claims discount will be reduced*.
In the event of a theft claim your no claims discount will be reduced, as it is unlikely we will locate the persons who stole your vehicle and recover the costs*.
*No claims discount protection can be added if you have a minimum of 4 years no claims discount (NCD). This can be added before you buy the policy, and cannot then be added until the next renewal.
Who will repair my car?
We have a panel of Approved Repairers, one of which will repair your car. Our Approved Repairers provide excellent customer service and quality repairs for our customers.
The Approved Repairer will provide you with a free courtesy car for the duration of repairs, each repair is carried out in accordance with recognised industry standards, and guaranteed for 3 years.You can use a repairer of your choice but this will mean we can't guarantee the work and you will need an estimate for us to approve before work can commence. You also lose your right to a courtesy car.
