  • Keep 100% of your personal injury claim compensation (without this, your solicitor may deduct their fees from the amount you receive)
  • Recover any lost earnings if you're unable to work
  • Defend a motoring prosecution arising from an incident while you were using your car
  • Call a free 24/7 legal advice telephone helpline service for any private legal matter

You won't be covered for claims that don’t have a reasonable (more than 50%) chance of success

Guaranteed hire car

“How will I get around without my car?"

Adding guaranteed hire car cover to your insurance means we'll arrange a hire car for you while yours is being fixed by one of our recommended repairers.

  • Have use of a hire car for the whole time yours is in the garage
  • If your car is stolen or written off, we'll guarantee you a hire car for up to 21 days or for up to 4 days after we have paid your claim - whichever is soonest
