Get free independent alternative advice by calling Car Call today on the number above and compare our services to that of your insurance company after an accident.

If you have a Tesco car insurance policy you would normally get in touch with the Tesco car accident claims line following your accident. For independent advice and assistance with car accident claims call 0330 058 1704 and we will be happy to help.

Having a large excess amount on your policy can be one way of keeping your insurance premiums down, so we all accept that we have to pay this amount if the accident was caused by our own driving mistakes.

However it can be infuriating to find out that if the accident was not your fault you will almost certainly still have to pay the excess on your policy. You should be able to claim this back at a later date, but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to pay this in the first place?

We specialise in helping non-fault drivers get the all help and assistance they need following an accident but we and our partners recover these costs directly from the at-fault driver's insurer, so there is an alternative to a claim on your own car insurance policy.


Because you are making your accident claim independently, there is no excess to pay on your policy and your no-claims bonus should remain protected.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.

Car Call and its partners will provide a like-for-like replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.

Manufacturer approved vehicle repairs

If you have been involved in a car accident, the last thing you want to have to worry about is the quality of the repairs to your car. We have a UK wide network of partner approved Accident Repair Centres available to all of our customers.

Many of our accident repair centres are have manufacturer approvals for specific brands, so if you require a manufacturer approved repair centre, simply tell your personal claim handler and they will ensure your vehicle goes to an approved repairer.

Want you vehicle repaired by a specific garage? No problem, we can alternatively use a repairer that you specify.
