Cars are such an essential part of how we function in everyday life and so to have this taken away from you can be massively disruptive.

Having the right kind of breakdown insurance not only means that the cost of your vehicle will be recovered in an emergency, but also means that your active lifestyle can be maintained over this difficult period.

How do I make a claim?

What is my excess?

An excess is the amount of money you contribute to the cost of your claim. The amount of your excess will depend on the level of cover you have and the nature of your claim. Details of your excess amounts will be displayed in your policy schedule.
Sometimes more than one excess will apply and in this case, QDOS Breakdown will add them together.
There are two types of excess and these are:

  • Compulsory excess which is set by the insurer underwriting your policy. This is added to the voluntary excess you choose to give the total amount of excess you will pay if you make a claim.
  • Voluntary excess which is in addition to any compulsory excess. You can set this as low as you want to reduce the amount you have to pay if you make a claim, or you can increase it which may reduce your premium.
