3 points (SP30) Obtained 5 months after I took out my insurance
I don't know yet the vehicle hasn't been assessed. The repairers will recover the monies directly from the other drivers insurance company as they have admitted full liability.
Ok but the claim is really out of my insurers hands as the repairers have taken over and they will contact the other drivers insurance not mine and recover money from them not my insurance, No claim is going against my insurance. So how could the claim be dishonoured when my insurance isn't being claimed against?
Yes I have reported it to them and they have arranged for the repairer and the car hire which is all in place and going through the motions.
I am collecting the hire car in a few hours
So you think I should inform my insurance company now and that they will continue my insurance and not cause any trouble for getting my car repaired?
If did tell them would they pass that info on to the other drivers insurance company who is paying for the repairs?
Took you advice, you were right.
In fact they were not bothered really, doesn't affect current claim and the points made no difference to my premium.
Very relieved thank you for your advice
