Can you explain about the courtesy car benefit included in my comprehensive policy?

The courtesy car is offered in the event of a claim.  This is most commonly a Class A car, with a 1 litre size engine such as a Kia Picanto.

It is offered by the garage as part of the repair.  The car will usually be available from when the garage books in your car, however, this is subject to availability. 

How long you have the car is also dependent on the garages terms and conditions - they all have different guidelines so we cannot specify this. All garages used are part of the RAC approved vehicle repair network.

If you require a hire car for the duration of repairs to your car following a non-fault accident (and 48 hour emergency vehicle hire) you should look at adding Motor Legal Protection to your policy. We will endeavour to source a hire car of equivalent type.
