I'm not happy with the courtesy car on my car insurance
If you are choosing a car insurance policy, you may pick one with a courtesy car included. This may be adequate for your needs if you drive a small saloon or hatchback, but if you drive a mid to high value vehicle – you may be in for a shock. This is because small saloons and hatchbacks are likely to be the only type of vehicles that are available from your repairer as your ‘courtesy car’ option.
There can be confusion between the term 'courtesy car' and the term 'replacement vehicle'. Strictly speaking a 'courtesy car' is provided at the discretion of the accident repair centre that is repairing your vehicle and is rarely provided on a like-for-like basis.
A 'replacement vehicle' is generally a vehicle that is provided specifically under the terms of your car insurance policy and they supply this at an extra cost on your policy.
If you are involved in a non-fault accident, the law states that you are entitled to be supplied with an equivalent replacement vehicle to use while yours is repaired.
Car Call UK and our partners specialise in independently helping people involved in non-fault road accidents.
We will be able to offer you a like-for-like replacement vehicle for the duration of your repairs, regardless of the terms of your policy and without the need to make an insurance claim. Oh… and we will arrange for your own car to be repaired too!
