It will vary from one insurer to the next, but there will almost certainly be an increase of some sort and it is more likely to be on the high side rather than a small increase.
You could change your policy to a cheaper one, but your current insurance provider is likely to want a cancellation fee (if not at the renewal date) and so you are out-of-pocket again.
There is however one way you can avoid your excess charges and any increases in your insurance, and that is to use our independent non-fault accident assistance service.
