General Accident – getting a quote

New customer quotes

Shopping around for insurance quotations can be a tricky process, however, General Accident has thankfully made things easy. Just click onto www.generalaccident.com/quote where you will find a short enquiry form. You will need to have some basic details ready including your car’s registration details and average annual mileage*.

*To calculate your annual mileage simply note your weekly amount and times it by 52.

Please note that it is still possible to obtain a quote without your car’s registration number but you will not be able to buy a policy.

Remember to save your details – General Accident will email a link enabling you to access your insurance account 24/7. Should you wish to retrieve a quotation, simply log into your General Accident account and select ‘My quotes’.

Credit information assessments

Obtaining a quotation will usually include a credit check in order for General Accident to adhere to legislation set by the, ‘Consumer Credit Act 1974’. In line with common practice, this search will be recorded on your credit history which will be visible to other lenders. Rest assured, all data is stored securely in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

No claims bonus

Obviously providing details of any ‘no claims bonuses’ can be beneficial when obtaining your insurance quotation. Please note that General Accident advisors will need proof from your previous insurer – on a renewal letter, cancellation document or headed paper. It is not possible for General Accident to gather such details on your behalf.

Policy renewals

Already have a General Accident policy and want to upgrade? No problem, there are various options available including RAC Breakdown, Hire Car cover, Legal Expenses Cover and Keycare. For more information about the different upgrades available simply click online or please ask a General Accident advisor to tell you more.

Arranging instant cover

Sometimes there just isn’t time to wait for an insurance quotation and thankfully that is where ‘instant cover’ steps in. Instant policy purchases can be made via the General Accident site using your credit or debit card. Once your payment is processed, you are free to drive. All relevant documentation can also be accessed online.
