Accident management service

If an accident is not your fault and you give us valid insurance details for the driver at fault, your Computerquote Insurance Accident Protection Policy can provide increased benefits to those available through your insurance company:

Replacement vehicle

An equivalent hire vehicle suitable for your needs - we recover the cost directly from the at-fault party

Policy excess

If you paid a policy excess as a result of a non-fault accident it can be recovered as part of the claim, often saving you over £200

Credit repair

An appointed repairer will carry out repairs with the costs being claimed directly from the other party, saving you from paying out an excess to collect your vehicle

Vehicle recovery and storage

If your vehicle cannot be driven as a result of the accident, reasonable costs for recovery and storage can also be included in the claim

Total loss negotiation and valuation service

If your vehicle is a total loss and valuation is disputed, we will assist in negotiations

Should any of your personal belongings be destroyed or damaged in an accident, the costs of replacing them can be recovered
