Be aware of changes to our minimum windscreen excess

The cost of replacing a windscreen, especially on newer vehicles, is rising rapidly and, as average claim costs increase, we’re making some changes to our minimum excesses for our Fleet and Motor Trade Policies.

We’re always looking for ways to ensure we’re providing the best service to our customers and brokers, and we will continue to review windscreen costs moving forwards. We may look to increase excesses for specific outlying vehicles to avoid further increases across the board for both premiums and excesses.

Please see below for details of the specific changes being introduced from next month.

Fleet & MiniFleet
Our minimum excess for windscreen replacement will be increasing to £150 or £250 if the policyholder does not use one of our approved windscreen replacement companies.

Motor Trade
Where unlimited windscreen cover is provided, the minimum excess for windscreen losses will increase to £150.
This increase will be limited to £75 where our maximum amount payable is limited to £250.

Keeping policyholders updated
A Notification to Policyholder will be produced for applicable renewals.
