No courtesy car on most car insurance

Nearly half of car insurance providers do not provide a courtesy car as standard, research by Defaqto found.

The study found 49% of car insurance policies would not provide a replacement car following an accident.

A further 28% only offer a replacement car if it was selected as an optional extra when the insurance policy was purchased.

Only a quarter (23%) of policies offer a courtesy car as standard.

“When purchasing cover, consumers must ensure that they are aware of the provider’s courtesy car provision,” said Mike Powell, Defaqto spokesperson.

“Finding out that a courtesy car is not available when you need one could be very costly, especially if you have to hire a car to continue your day to day activities.”
