Windscreen Cover

Motor Insurance Support Product

Cover for glass and windscreen

Cost £31.50

How it works

Unless specifically arranged, neither third party fire and theft nor third party only policies provide cover for windscreen or window glass breakage. The average cost of a repair for a 4-door family saloon ranges between £100 – £150 for a replacement windscreen.

This policy guarantees assistance for windscreen and window glass breakage. It authorises insurer-approved replacement or repair where possible without any cost to you, and provides cover should your vehicle fail an MOT due to a windscreen replacement being required.

The cover

This policy is primarily designed for third party fire and theft or third party only motor insurance policies and provides a limited amount of insurance for replacement windscreen and glass.

The main aspects of the policy include:

  • Policy limit and excess
    There is an cumulative policy limit of £300 during the 12 month policy period. There is £60 excess on windscreen and glass repairs.
  • Damage
    The policy covers breakage of windows or windscreen glass, includes damage to the windscreen if the damage will cause the vehicle to fail an MOT.
  • A 14-day cooling-off period
    During this time you may cancel the policy without incurring a penalty. There is a £15 administrative charge if the policy is cancelled after 14 days.

Main conditions
