Answers:

DO NOT ADMIT LIABILITY OR TRY TO SETTLE A CLAIM

This limits how we can sort things out with anyone else involved – and it may cancel out your claim. If you’re pressed, say: “I need to talk with my insurance company. They’ll know what to do.”

The more details you can provide us, the faster we can settle your claim.

Exchange details with other drivers or witnesses. It’s important that you get the name, address, phone number, vehicle registration and insurance company of the other driver in the accident.

If an uninsured driver hits your vehicle, it’s important that you also identify the person (ask to see his or her licence and note the number if possible), the car (make, model, colour and registration number), the contact details of any witnesses and if a police officer attended, get his or her name and ID number.

Also note the streets, the location and direction of the vehicles and anything else which could be important such as stop signs or traffic lights.

Call us as soon as you can on 0800 500 216.  If your car can’t be driven, your Customer Manager can arrange for your car to be towed to the nearest authorised repairer. Your Customer Manager will keep you fully informed and make sure things stay on track, so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.  And when the repairs are done at one of our approved repairers, we guarantee the repairs for the life of your car – even if you sell it.

If you don’t have our Guaranteed No Claim Bonus for Life yet, your insurance premium could increase if you make a claim, unless it’s clear that you were not at fault.

There’s no premium increase due to you making a home or contents claim.

If you give us all the relevant information as soon as possible, we can process, accept and action your claim without delay.

If you leave out something important, your claim may be delayed or even declined.

Tell us when things change for you – for instance, if you buy something valuable or move house – so we can keep your insurance up to date.

You can find more information in the Policy Documents under the heading, ‘Providing up-to-date information’.

If you’re not sure whether something matters, call us on 0800 500 213 to be on the safe side and we’ll help sort things out.
