Vehicle Insurance FAQsWe try to make everything about vehicle insurance a little clearer, so we've put together the answers to the questions we get asked the most. Enjoy!
Before you give us a call, make sure you have these things to hand:
Vehicle details (make, model, reg number, etc). Your full address & postcode. Your driving licence. Number of years of No-Claims Bonus (NCB). Claims & convictions details (if any) for the past 5 years. Details of any other drivers including their licence details.
You can enter the vehicle's year of manufacture, make & model instead.
Yes, you can, but we will need this info if you decide to purchase a policy
It's what you need to pay if you make a claim. For example, if you have a £100 excess on your policy then you pay the first £100 of the claim you make.
These include your policy excess, loss of earnings, vehicle hire charges, personal injury damages (such as compensation for whiplash). Other losses may include vehicle repair costs (if third party cover), medical fees, compensation for the loss of use of your vehicle, damage to personal belongings, vehicle recovery, storage charges & out of pocket expenses.
Even if an accident is not your fault, no insurance policy will cover ALL your losses – these are known as uninsured losses. Our Legal cover, however, can provide uninsured loss recovery and legal expenses up to £100,000.
No, cover is provided for the vehicle shown in your motor insurance certificate only & the named drivers on the policy.

We need your help is providing us with a copy of your driving licence, your MyLicence record from the DVLA and proof of your No claims Bonus.
