  • ImpactAlert enables us to contact clients as soon as
    they have been involved in a severe accident to offer our assistance.
  • We are able to detect in real time if your client’s car

both instances, if we are unable to reach the client, we will despatch
assistance immediately.

Innovative cover solutions

following benefits are included in our cover:

  • Our No-excess benefit means clients don’t pay an excess
    for certain events that are not their fault (for example; Hail, fire and
    theft, with visible forced entry.)
  • Our Estimated maximum loss feature, which allows
    clients to reduce their premiums, but still get the cover they need for
    their portable possessions.

    contents are sufficiently covered.

    retail value of a client’s car in the event of a total loss.
