Features and benefits

Personal claims manager

No matter the level of cover you choose, if you make a claim, it will be handled by your very own personal claims manager from start to finish, delivering the type of service you'd expect from M&S Bank.Footnote 1*

Uninsured driver protection

It is reassuring to know that you can recover your excess even if you're hit by an uninsured driver.

Full details of vehicles and drivers involved required.

Guaranteed replacement car with premier cover

If you can't drive your car after an accident, fire or theft, we'll give you a hire car for up to 28 days (subject to eligibility), and then a courtesy car after that if required (subject to availability).

Guaranteed replacement car cover options can be added to standard policies.

RAC European and UK breakdown cover is included, covering you even if you're a passenger in another car. Optional levels of breakdown cover can be added to standard policies (covers your vehicle only).

How do I make a claim?

If you need to make a claim, you should call 0344 412 2160 as soon as possible. The Claims team is here to help you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Make sure you've got your policy number to hand when you call.

Can someone else drive my car for a short period?

Your policy only covers the named drivers listed in section 5 of your Certificate of Motor Insurance. If anyone else drives your car, including members of your family or someone living with you, your car won't be covered. If you want to let someone else drive your car for a short period, you can add them to your policy as a temporary driver for up to 14 days. To extend this period, you can add the same person as a temporary driver again. You can do this up to three times before you have to include them as a named driver on your policy.

Even if your policy only covers you for private use and commuting, a temporary driver can also be covered for business use, as long as this is linked to the main driver's business. The minimum premium to add a temporary driver to your policy is currently £10 for each 14 day period. An administration fee may also apply in addition to this premium. To add a temporary driver, call the Customer Services team on 0344 412 2157. Lines are open 8am–9pm Monday to Friday, 9am–8pm Saturday, 10am–4pm Sunday and 9am–5pm bank holidays. Please have your policy details to hand when you call.

Choose the right cover for you

Premier cover

With premier cover you get additional benefits worth over £400Footnote 4††

These include:

  • European and UK breakdown cover, worth £388.86Footnote 4††. As it covers you, not just your vehicle, we'll keep you on the road even if you're a passenger in another car.

  • Up to £100,000 motor legal protection to help you claim for uninsured losses, worth £26.29Footnote 4††.

Standard cover

If you don't need all these benefits, you can keep the cost of your insurance down by choosing standard cover which comes with:

  • Uninsured driver protection – so you're covered if you're hit by someone else without insurance. You will need to provide a minimum of the make, model, and registration number of the vehicle involved, and the driver’s details.
  • 3 year guarantee on repairs carried out by our approved repairers.
  • Child seat cover – replacement child seat (up to £150) after an accident.
  • £200 personal belongings cover.

You can also add some of the benefits included with premier as optional extras. In some instances it could cost you less to upgrade to premier.
