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 van 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.
For any Third party liability claim, you will need to pay the first £250. If you decide to use a vet not listed on More Than’s referral network, you will need to pay £200.

You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.
