Re: Car vandalism assurance claim rejected

I am sure that the fact that the excess is almost exactly the same as the original bill is just a coincidence!-:)

Re: Car vandalism assurance claim rejected

Have you looked at your contract?  The excess is called la franchise and the exact amount will be written in the bumpf.

My franchise on the cars I have owned has been 300 euros for many years now.  Perhaps yours is a bit higher as you do not drive the car all year round and you are sometimes an absent owner.

Have another close look, it should be plainly visibleSmile [:)]

If you are going to be paying the bill I suggest that you tell the insurance agent that you will do it privately and you do not want the claim going through their books. Your NCB is at risk.

If the garage thought it was an insurance job they may have boosted the price of the repairs somewhat. Ask them if, given that you will be paying, they cannot come up with a cheaper quote.
Ticking over, just about.
