What are the levels of cover offered by Sure Thing!?
Third party cover is the most basic form of car insurance legally accepted on UK roads; however, this is not offered through Sure Thing!
Sure Thing! does offer two levels of cover:
If you are responsible for causing an accident, you’ll be covered for damage to third-party vehicles or property. It will provide protection against any fire damage to your car or theft of your car, but it won’t cover any accidental damage.
This gives the same protection as TPFT and also insures your vehicle against accidental damage and vandalism. It’s always worth getting a quote for comprehensive cover, as in some cases, it can be cheaper than lower levels of cover due to the risk profile of customers who choose them.

How do I make a claim?
Call the 24-hour Sure Thing! claims line on 0800 783 3000 to make a claim. This line is open seven days a week and is free to call.
You’ll need to provide your policy details and have the following information to hand before making a claim:
- Names and contact details of other drivers
- Details of all vehicles involved such as registration numbers, make and model
- Details about when, where and how the accident occurred
- Details about any damage or injuries
- Names and contact details of witnesses, if available
- Photographs of the scene of the accident and/or any damage to vehicles or property
- Crime reference number, if available
- CCTV or dashcam footage, 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.
What is my excess?
Your insurance excess is the amount of money you have agreed to pay towards a claim. Your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than your excess. A compulsory excess amount might vary depending on the age of your car and your driving experience.
A voluntary excess is normally an amount set by you when taking out a policy. You’ll have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess, which could in turn reduce your premium.
You’ll be able to find details about any applied excess in your policy document.
