What are More Than’s levels of cover?
To be on UK roads, all drivers are legally required to have at least third party car insurance. More Than doesn’t offer third party on its own, but it does offer two higher levels of cover.
Third party, fire and theft (TPFT). If you are responsible for causing an accident, you’ll be protected for damage to other people’s vehicles or property. You’ll also have protection against any fire damage or theft of your car.
Comprehensive. This is the highest level of cover on offer through More Than and will provide the same protection as TPFT as well as insuring your vehicle against accidental damage and vandalism. It’s always worth checking the cost of comprehensive as it can be cheaper than third party or TPFT.
What types of car insurance are available?
Young driver insurance. More Than offers young drivers insurance through its More Than Smart Wheels telematics or “black box” policies.

You change the use of your car from its original use. For example, changing from social domestic and pleasure to business use.

What is the claims process for More Than?
You should call the More Than claims line on 0800 300 252 to make a claim. The claims line is open Mondays to Fridays 8am to 8pm and Saturdays 8am to 4pm.
Alternatively, you can complete the initial online claims form within the claims section of the More Than website.
You will need to provide the following information:
Details about the incident
Names and contact details of everyone involved in the incident, including passengers, third parties, any witnesses
The makes, models and registration numbers of all vehicles involved
Third party insurance details and policy numbers
Crime reference number, if applicable
Digital photographs, if available
It’s vital that you let your insurer know about an incident as soon as possible, even if it’s not your fault. Failure to do this could result in a rejected claim later on.
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 and is normally set by you when taking out a policy. You’ll have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess – which should lower your premium.
You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.
How to save on your car insurance policy through More Than
Increasing security. If your car is not currently fitted with an alarm, think about adding one to reduce your premium.
Having a secure location to park your car. Cars kept in a garage or on a secure driveway are usually cheaper to insure.
Reduce mileage. If you start working part-time or your long commute becomes much shorter, letting your insurer know about a reduction in your mileage could result in cheaper insurance.
Fewer drivers. Only add drivers to your policy that regularly drive your car.
Larger excess. Agreeing to pay a bigger voluntary excess could make your overall premium cheaper. But remember that your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than your excess. So be careful about making it too high, as it could leave you out of pocket if damage occurs.
Check the discounts. More Than says it offers existing policyholders a 15% discount on the insurance premium of a second car (excluding its telematics policies).
