What is car windscreen cover?
If your windscreen gets damaged, we can help cover the cost of fixing it. It could be something minor such as repairing a small chip, or a bigger job like replacing a cracked windscreen.
But whether the glass in your car windscreen is accidentally damaged or broken, our cover can help you get it repaired or replaced. And it can also cover repairs of associated scratches on your car’s bodywork.
How does it work?
If your car has windscreen damage, or you need to replace it altogether, you can take your car to one of our approved repairers, or a repairer of your choice. You’ll need to pay an excess for the repair, but we’ll cover the rest if you choose an approved repairer.
Even minor damages to your car screen should be fixed as soon as possible, as they can worsen over time. Depending on which car insurance policy you have with us, you might already have windscreen cover included.
Got Standard or Plus Comprehensive car insurance?
Good news. Your Comprehensive policy already covers you for accidental damage to your windscreen. We know this is a common problem for drivers, so we consider it essential for our fully Comprehensive policy.
Got Third Party, Fire and Theft insurance?
Our Third Party, Fire and Theft (TPFT) policy doesn’t include windscreen insurance cover as standard, but you can add it for an extra fee.
Got Essentials Comprehensive car insurance?
Our Essentials policy doesn’t include windscreen insurance cover as standard.
Your excess fee
When you make a claim for damage to your car windscreen, you’ll need to pay an excess. The amount you pay will depend on which policy you have and who carries out the repairs.
