What does lifestyle excess insurance cover?

One policy to cover multiple excesses

Our lifestyle excess insurance policy covers your home, motor, pet and travel insurance excesses under one single policy. Please note, however, that we can only cover private policies (not commercial).

Multiple claims

We can only reimburse you up to the maximum reimbursement limit shown in your insurance certificate, but you are welcome to claim more than once during the period of cover if it falls within that limit.

Worldwide cover

To qualify for this lifestyle excess insurance product, you must be resident in the UK or the Isle of Man. However, cover extends to cover incidents that occur anywhere in the world (excluding Cuba, Iran, North Korea, the Region of Crimea, Sudan and Syria).

Buy now, start your policy later

You can take out a policy up to 364 days before to the date you want your policy to start. Your policy will run for a 12-month period from your selected start date. This means that you can make sure that your other insurance policies (e.g. home insurance) start dates align.

Lifestyle Excess Insurance FAQs

What is an excess?

An excess is the amount you have to pay in the event of a claim on your insurance policy. Generally, the larger the excess the lower your insurance premium. An excess can also be known as a 'deductible'.

What is excess insurance?

Excess insurance protects the excess amount you are responsible for in the event of a claim.

For example: if you buy your motor insurance policy with an excess of £500, and you have an accident that causes £2,000 worth of damage to your car; the insurer would settle your claim at £1,500. So that’s £2,000 less your £500 excess.

By taking out a lifestyle excess reimbursement insurance policy, you can protect yourself against some or all of the excess charges from your home, motor, pet or travel policies, depending on the level of excess reimbursement cover you select.

How does an Insure4Excess policy work?

Insure4Excess reimbursement policies can protect the excess you are responsible for in the event of a claim. In the event of a claim you will need to pay the excess to your insurance company first and then claim this back on your Insure4Excess policy.
