Step 1 - To claim or not to claim?
Not all accidents or incidents will result in a claim being made. Depending on the excess on your policy, it may be cheaper to pay for smaller repairs instead of making a claim and paying the excess.
If you have built up several years No Claims Discount (NCD) you may prefer to protect this rather than make a claim.
