As you may be aware, most industries shut down over the holiday period including some motor vehicle repairers.
In the event of you having an accident or loss during this period, you may experience difficulty in finding a reputable repairer in your area over this period. Our motor claims technicians will, however, be more than happy to recommend repairers closest to you who are operational during this time.
The shortage of available repairers can negatively affect the expected repair time which could result in you being without your prized vehicle for longer than expected. We therefore recommend that, if you have included the car hire option, you consider extending your time limit (in return for additional premium) – the standard car hire period is 30 days, but this can be extended to 45 or even 60 days.
Please contact us should you wish to take up this option.
For clients who have chosen not to include the car hire benefit, you are most welcome to contact us to add the cover prior to an insured event occurring to ensure your peace-of-mind.
Ensure that your vehicle is serviced before heading out on your holiday, including tyre checks.
We wish you a safe, peaceful festive season and a prosperous 2020!
