    Motor Home Insurance (CDW) Query

    Motor Home Insurance (CDW) Query 5th Aug 16 at 6:30 PM
    I recently rented a motor home and instead of taking out the companies CDW waiver insurance (£20 per day) I opted for a policy for around £70 as per comments I'd read.

    On the final day we managed to damage the vehicle with no 3rd party involved, I returned the vehicle and was expecting to get hit with the £1000 excess charge, however they've sent me an invoice for the damage which is around £340.

    My question is what should I do, can I claim on the CDW policy or do I go back to the hire company and ask them to charge me a grand so I can claim it back? Or just pay the £340 and be done with it?

    I didn't claim to be quoting you! You said these policies contained a big catch and were a waste of money. I paraphrased that as meaning useless.
    I don't think that was much of a leap but I'm sorry if you find it unforgivable.
    Anyway, let's hope that OP now gets his claim paid, which is all that matters.

    Just an update, claim submitted and they paid out minus the £100 excess fee which was a nice treat to get some money back when I'd pretty much thought the claim would fail!

    I thought it would go through ok!. It would be a pretty rubbish policy that cost £70 and only paid out on claims over £1000.
