What to do after an accident

If you’ve been involved in an accident call us for help. If your vehicle can’t be driven secure it as best as you can and take your personal items with you. If you need to arrange for the vehicle to be towed we’ll reimburse you once your claim is accepted.

If other vehicles were involved, give your name and contact details to the owner(s). It’s important you don’t admit fault as this can limit our ability to act on your behalf.
