An excess is the amount you need to contribute towards the cost of repairing your car if you make a claim. To make car insurance premiums more affordable for everyone, we include an excess in your policy. Then, when you make a claim, you’ll need to pay your excess(es).
There are different types of excesses, which you or the driver of your car at the time of the claim might need to pay. If your claim is for more than one accident or event, you or the driver will have to pay the excess for each accident or event. You can find the amount of excess you’ll need to pay on your Certificate of Insurance.
