What is my excess?
Your insurance excess is the amount of money you will need to pay towards a claim. Your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than this amount. A compulsory excess amount might vary depending on the age of your car and your driving experience.
A voluntary excess is on top of the compulsory excess and is normally set by you when taking out a policy. You may have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess, which should lower your breakdown cover premium.
You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.

It’s important that you have the following information to hand when calling Rescuemycar.com:
- Your personal details such as your name and telephone number.
- Your location and the details of the breakdown.
- Your vehicle’s registration number, make, model and colour.
