The claims helpline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Words written in bold have special meanings.
These meanings are explained in the policy definitions section of the policy booklet on page 8.
The claims helpline is a service where you can report incidents to the operators who will immediately confirm whether your policy covers you for the incident. Remember to save this number in your mobile phone so that you will have it available if you have an accident. Calls may be recorded for monitoring or training purposes, to improve the quality of service and to prevent and detect fraud.
If the car is involved in an incident or you need to make a claim, please phone as soon as possible. To help deal with your call efficiently, please have your certificate of motor insurance and details of the incident with you when you call. If you are at the scene of the accident when you call the claims helpline and do not have your certificate of motor insurance with you, please give the car registration number.
A message can be passed to friends, family or colleagues.
If damage to the car is covered and it can be repaired, one of the approved repairers will contact you and arrange to collect the car. Repairs made by approved repairers are guaranteed for three years.
If an approved repairer is used, you do not need to get any estimates, and repairs can begin immediately after they have authorised.
When the work is done, the repairer will contact you to arrange a convenient time to deliver the car back to you.
The Insurer, Ageas Insurance Limited, will pay the repair bill. All you need to do is pay any policy excess direct to the repairer when they deliver the car back to you.
If the car cannot be economically repaired, a settlement amount will be offered to you within one week of the date the engineer’s report is received. Once this amount is agreed, you will be sent the payment within one working day of the insurer receiving satisfactory vehicle documents.
If the car is a total loss (a write-off), you must send in all the original documents that are asked for (for example, the vehicle registration document (V5C) and the current MOT certificate). An appointed salvage agent will arrange to collect the vehicle to dispose of it. Please remove all your personal belongings from the car before it is collected.
If the car is not roadworthy following an incident covered by your policy, assistance will be given to get you and your passengers from the scene of the incident to your home or to your planned destination, subject to a maximum payment of £250. If you cannot complete your journey, overnight accommodation will be paid for up to £75 per person for you and your passengers.
To keep you mobile, while using an approved repairer within the geographical limits, you will be offered a small courtesy car while yours is being repaired.
The repairer may, with your agreement, provide an alternative solution more suitable to your requirements. Once it has been decided that your car can be economically repaired by one of the approved repairers and if it cannot be driven, a courtesy car will be provided on the next working day for as long as the repairs take.
If your car can still be legally driven (in other words, it is roadworthy), the courtesy car will be delivered when your car is collected for repairs. If it is deemed that your car is uneconomical to repair, or if it is stolen and not recovered, you will be provided with a small courtesy car with an engine size no greater than 1200cc for up to 14 days.
While you have the courtesy car you will be liable to pay fines for any parking or driving offences or congestion charges, and any additional costs for non-payment of these charges.
You may be asked to produce an appropriate credit or debit card to the approved repairer to cover these costs.
If you're an existing customer, please call our friendly UK-based Age Co team at the Ageas contact centre on 0345 603 0512 if you need postal copies of any of your documents. Calls to 03 numbers use free plan minutes if available, otherwise, they cost the same as 01/02 prefix calls.

Many factors are taken into consideration when calculating an insurance quote, age being one of them. With more experience on the road and a tendency to be cautious, older drivers are welcomed with Age Co Car Insurance. Unlike other providers, Age Co Car Insurance has no upper age limits and no admin fees for changes or cancellations to policies. Age Co’s Comprehensive Cover also offers great additional benefits like 180 days of European cover, a maximum payment of £250 to get you and your passengers home if your vehicle is no longer road worthy after an accident, and unlimited windscreen cover with our chosen glass companies.
Although this insurance is designed with the over 50s in mind, there are no age restrictions. Younger named drivers can be included on the policy, subject to acceptance by the insurer.
Having pre-existing medical conditions should not affect your Age Co Car Insurance quote, but UK law requires you to report certain conditions to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and, if they deem you to be unfit for driving, you will be refused cover.
Legally, you must be able to read a car number plate from 20 metres away to be able to drive, so it is advised to schedule regular eye tests to ensure your vision is at its best. You can schedule an eye test at the opticians (available for free on the NHS for those aged 60 or above, and free to all ages in Scotland). It is your responsibility to notify Age Co of any changes to your medical conditions that the DVLA need to be aware of, to ensure you are still covered under an existing policy.
This is a discount on your car insurance premium. You can receive this if you have not made any claims against your policy, or if you have made a claim and your insurer has made a full recovery of costs from the Third Party. Protection is given if the customer has 4 years and over NCD and no more than 1 Fault claim in the past 3 years.
You will automatically be given Protected No Claims Discount. No Claims Discount Protection allows you to have no more than 1 Fault claim in the past 3 years without affecting your No Claims Discount. It does not protect the overall price of your insurance policy. The price of your insurance policy may increase following an accident even if you were not at fault. Other factors can also increase the price of your policy.
Some providers charge ‘hidden admin fees', which can include adjustment, cancellation fees and duplicate document fees.
With Age Co Car Insurance there are no admin fees. There are no fees for policy amendments, cancelling your policy or requesting duplicate copies of your policy documents. An additional premium will only be required if you make any changes that increase your level of risk. An example of this would be adding an additional driver. Where the changes amount to less than £10, a request for additional payment will not be made, nor a refund issued.
Yes, you will be entitled to a courtesy car in the event of an accident, or once the vehicle has been recovered following a theft, whilst repairs are being carried out by an approved repairer. A courtesy car will also be provided for up to 14 days should your car be stolen or written off.
The Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) legislation was introduced in England, Scotland and Wales to help ensure all motor vehicles are either insured or declared as ‘off road’ using a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN). If you don’t use your car on the roads, for example, if you keep it in a garage during the winter months, then you will not need to insure your vehicle, but you must inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and obtain a SORN. Otherwise you may receive a fine, a court prosecution, or your car may be clamped, seized and disposed of.
Yes, you can add Motor Breakdown cover for an additional cost.. This cover is provided by Call Assist Ltd. You'll be covered for roadside assistance, vehicle recovery, and you're even covered at home if your car won't start.
If you are not currently using your car, or if you keep it laid up in a garage during the winter months, you can inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and obtain a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN). Vehicles with a SORN are not required to be insured while they remain off the road. It is important to note, however, that you could lose your no-claims bonus if you do not maintain a car insurance policy in your name for more than two years.
You can take out Motor Legal Protection cover for an extra cost, which includes a 24/7 legal helpline. This is designed to assist in recovering losses you are not insured for, personal injury and compensation for damaged belongings following a car accident that was not your fault or to defend a motoring prosecution brought against you. You can also obtain legal advice and assistance to pursue your claim for uninsured losses. This might include your policy excess, loss of earnings, car hire changes or additional travel expenses.
We will send you a letter in the post in good time before your renewal date with the full details of your renewal. If you are paying by direct debit instalments and have opted-in to auto-renewal, your policy will automatically renew. Should you not wish to renew, you can cancel by phoning one of our Age Co team at the Ageas contact centre on 0345 128 7915.
You should call the accident helpline on 0345 601 6687 or +44 2380 621983 if calling from abroad. It’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
All repairs are guaranteed for up to three years, provided that they are carried out by an approved repairer.
You can cancel at any time over the phone or in writing at no additional cost. You will only be charged for the time you have been on cover, unless a claim has been made. If a claim has been made you will need to pay the full annual premium.
Third-party insurance is the absolute minimum level of cover you are required to have by law before driving a car. Should you have an accident and cause damage or injure another driver their costs will be covered, but you and your car will not be covered. Third-party insurance is not always cheaper than fully comprehensive car insurance and it may cost you more in the long run. Age Co only provides fully comprehensive insurance, which automatically includes third party cover.
Consent to auto-renewal means you are giving Age Co permission to renew your policy without you having to do anything other than check that the information we hold for you remains correct.
When you give your consent to auto-renew your policy, the insurance provider will issue your renewal documents and inform you that the policy will auto-renew without any intervention from you.
The consent will remain in force unless you change it or the policy is cancelled. If you choose not to auto-renew, you will need to contact the Age Co team at the Ageas Contact Centre on 0800 323 4437* at renewal to ensure you remain insured. You can change your auto-renewal preference at any time.
Auto-renewal can offer you peace of mind that your insurance will remain in place when it comes to your renewal.
When you give your consent to auto-renew your policy, the insurance provider will issue your renewal documents, which will include details of your cover and any associated costs, and inform you that the policy will auto-renew without any need for you to make contact and confirm.
The consent will remain in force unless you change it, which you can do at any time, or if the policy is cancelled. If you chose not to auto-renew your policy, when it comes to renewal you will need to contact the Age Co team at the Ageas Contact Centre to complete your renewal. If you don’t make contact then your policy will end, and you will not be covered.
You can change your auto-renewal consent at any time before your renewal is due by logging into the online portal or by calling the Age Co team at the Ageas Contact Centre on 0800 323 4437*. There is no charge for changing your mind.
If you have previously opted not to auto-renew, you will need to contact us at the time of renewal to ensure you remain insured.
Pay in Full
To 'Pay in full' is the cheapest way to pay for your insurance. Because you pay a single annual payment there is no interest to pay, as there is with some other payment methods such as direct debit. You can choose to auto-renew your policy if you pay in full.
You may choose to pay monthly however, it will cost you more than paying in full with a single annual payment. You can choose to auto-renew your policy if you pay by Direct Debit.
