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.
