Excess Protection

Enhance your car insurance

Recover your excess if you make a claim

With Excess Protection you can claim back your excess on one insurance claim during the 12 months of your car insurance policy for:

  • Accidental damage.
  • Malicious damage.
  • Theft or attempted theft.
  • Fire.

You can even claim back your policy excess on a claim where you're at fault or the other party involved cannot be identified.

Excess Protection is available with Comprehensive, or Third Party, Fire and Theft AA Car Insurance.

Your benefits with Excess Protection cover
  • Covers your full policy excess (voluntary and compulsory excesses combined).
  • Claim your policy excess back on one car insurance claim for each policy year.
  • Peace of mind – with Excess Protection you won't be left out-of-pocket if your car's damaged by an unidentified driver.
What claims are not covered
  • Where the total cost of the claim is less than the excess payable on the car insurance policy.
  • Where you haven't been left out of pocket. For instance, if you were able to recover your policy excess through another insurance policy, eg through Motor Legal Assistance cover.
  • Incidents that happen before the start of your policy.
  • Policy excesses related to: glass (windscreen, sunroof and windows); personal effects; accessories; or audio/visual equipment such as car phones, satnav, CD players and radios.
