Car insurance claim question

Hi all

quick question as I’m trying to do some online quotes for our car insurance and I’m stumped on something.

my other half had a none fault accident in my car as a named driver. The repair work was completed via my insurance.

I’m now doing renewal quotes on her car as her car insurance is due . . . Do I need to put the accident claim down in her name as the driver or my name as the accident was claimed on my insurance?

many thanks.

    The questions will ask about claims for the policyholder and other drivers.  Just answer what is asked.

    Your other half has had a non fault claim in the last 5 years, not you.  Whose car they were in doesn't matter.

    It goes against her name on a policy where she is the main driver as she had the accident.

    It also goes against her name on your policy as a named driver.

    Thanks, I thought that would be the case but wanted to make sure I hadn’t misinterpreted the questions
