What happens when I phone the claim line?

When you call us, one of our trained claims advisors will assist you with the claiming process. We aim to deal with your claim and quickly and compassionately as possible. Please ensure you have your policy number handy when you call and our advisor will then confirm the level of cover on your policy and notify you of the excess amounts which may apply. We will then send out a claim form, which should be completed and returned to us as soon as possible.

What is a policy excess?

Excess is the amount you must pay towards each and every claim. If claims are made under more than one section of cover, an excess will apply to each section of cover under which a claim is made. Our claims advisors will let you know the amount of the excess that applies for your claim. You'll also find details of this in your policy schedule. We'll deduct the amount of the policy excess from the settlement of your claim.
