Top tips

Our top tips for making a car insurance claim:

Do's

  • If you own the vehicle, always give your name and address, those of your insurer and your car insurance policy number to anyone who needs it and has good reason to ask for it.
  • Make sure you report the accident to the police within 24 hours if there are any injuries and the details weren’t given at the scene.
  • Read your policy documents to see if you can use your optional cover included in your policy.

Dont's

  • Make sure you don’t apologise for an accident, even if you feel it was your fault. It’s really important to not do this as you may not be legally liable for the accident and you could affect your insurer’s ability to act on your behalf if you admit fault, even in passing. It could also affect your No Claims Discount.
