Making a claim for vehicle damage in France
I am aware that UK car insurance covers basic liability in all EU countries but my insurance company refused to pursue a claim for damage when I was rear ended when stationary in mid December. The constat document was properly exchanged and the other vehicle driver clearly liable. I have sent full details to the other driver's insurance company but they are not wanting to deal with me. Does anyone have any experience on how to proceed.
To add insult to injury I purchased my fully comp insurance some 18 months ago through a comparison site on the basis of regular continental use. I took the renewal late last year without thought but failed to read the changes to european use.
I now must give notice of any forthcoming trip, and then pay an excess for any comprehensive cover over 3 days. The wonders of Esure
If I am not going to get paid out then I will get on and do the job myself as I can diy for a just a a few hundred pounds. I think anyone in this situation would be gutted if they suffered serious damage in the same circumstances and totally lost their vehicle.
