Legal protection - £24.79 per year
If you’re injured in a road traffic accident that's not your fault, you may have the right to pursue compensation. You may also face financial losses that aren't covered by your car insurance. These could include:
Loss of earnings
Cost of alternative travel arrangements
Recovery of your policy excess from a third party
In addition, you may need to defend certain motoring prosecutions against you, or resolve disputes related to buying and selling goods or services for your vehicle - including selling your car.
Motor Legal Protection covers legal costs up to £100,000 per claim, if you need a lawyer to act for you in these circumstances.
For any claim to be accepted, there must be more than a 50% chance of success.
Motor Legal Protection also provides access to a 24/7 Legal Helpline, providing advice for private legal problems and access to online legal documents.
Car Breakdown Cover
We offer three levels of Breakdown Cover:
Home Rescue - which in addition to roadside rescue, also provides cover if you break down at home
European Rescue - our most comprehensive level of Breakdown Cover.
Excess Protection - £30.99 per year
If you need to make a claim for damage to your car, you’ll usually have to pay the total excess on your policy to the repairer. You can protect against this expense with Excess Protection which will reimburse up to £500 of your excess payment (excludes windscreen excess).
Protected No Claims Discount
Claiming for an accident that was your fault usually means you lose some or all of your No Claims Discount (except for windscreen claims). However there is a way to protect your discount. If you have accumulated four or more years No Claims Discount, you may be able to protect the discount for an additional amount. You can only protect your No Claims Discount before your policy starts. No Claims Discount protection does not protect the overall price of your insurance policy. The price of your insurance may increase following an accident even if you were not at fault.
Protected No Claims Discount allows you to make up to two fault claims in a three year period without losing any of your No Claims Discount. Your protection is lost after the second claim, which means that if you make a third fault claim within three years of insurance, you will lose some of your No Claims Discount.
If you wish to protect less than four years of No Claims Discount we may still be able to help.
