An excess is the amount of money you have to pay towards a claim before your insurer starts coughing up.
So say you have an excess of £100 and the stolen laptop you’re claiming for is worth £200, you’ll have to pay half of the cost out of your own pocket.
How much excess you will have to pay will depend on the type of claim you’re making, so take a look at the full list of excess costs outlined in your policy handbook.
If you need to make a claim and it’s not an emergency, the easiest way is on the Aviva website.
You should have the following to hand:
If it’s a medical emergency and you’re abroad, then call Aviva on +44 1603 208 044. If it’s not an emergency dial+44 1603 603 716.
