Excess Protection Insurance
If the thought of having to stump up potentially hundreds of pounds to pay your excess in the event of a claim is a major concern, then our Excess Protection Cover might be for you!
Excess Protection Cover
Excess protection alongside your Lexham insurance policy will enable you to reimburse your excess in the event of a claim.
If your insurance policy is either Third-party fire and theft (TPF&T) or Fully Comprehensive, an excess will apply to any claim for either the 'theft of', or 'damage to' your vehicle.
You can now take out a separate Excess Protection Cover to reimburse this excess in the event of a claim. This means that your claim could effectively be excess-free if you select the appropriate level of cover.
Excess Protection Insurance is underwritten by Alwyn.
