When is it cheaper to pay for car repairs yourself?

Many drivers are unaware of the hidden cost of going through their insurance for car repairs, especially if it is a fault claim. This is because there are typically TWO TYPES of insurance excess – a ”standard excess” and a “voluntary excess”. It is not uncommon for the total excess on an insurance policy to exceed £700, and this is the amount the vehicle owner has to pay towards the cost of repair on all claims except non-fault claims where the third party’s insurance is covering all costs.

Preserve your no-claims

Increasingly car owners don’t bother going through their insurance for smaller car repairs, partly because of the excess, and also to preserve their no-claims-bonus. (Did you know that even a non-fault claim can put up your insurance premium too?)
