Claiming back your excess after a non-fault accident
If you decide to make a non-fault on your car insurance, you may be surprised to be asked for your excess to paid first and in full, before your vehicle will be repaired.
Your insurer will probably reassure you that they will recover this money from the at-fault insurer for you – and they should. The trouble is - it can take months and months before you eventually get it back.
If you are lucky enough to have a small car insurance excess, then perhaps this won’t bother you – which is fine.
Unfortunately your insurer will probably have another surprise for you – even though you were the innocent victim in the accident, they will also probably increase the cost of your insurance because of your claim.
Still ok? - we thought not.
