Making a Car Insurance claim

You can make a claim quickly and easily with our online service or by giving us a call.

Call our partners at RAC on:

0800 003 001

Lines are open 24/7 and calls may be recorded.

    For your safety:

    • Move your car – try to get it off the road
    • Leave the car – stay a safe distance away
    • Be seen – put your hazard lights on

    A few things to expect:

    • You'll need the vehicle reg or your postcode
    • If you don't have breakdown cover, we can still help, but you'll need to pay for it
    • This won't affect your no claims discount

    If you have added Key Cover to your policy, then you have up to 30 days to start your claim.

    Call our partners at Keycare on:

    If you don’t have Key Cover, you need to start your claim within 24 hours of the incident so please contact your underwriter to make a claim.

    If you have a query that isn’t about a Key Cover claim, and you need to speak to Tesco Bank directly, please visit our Contact us section.

      If it's only damage to your windscreen or windows, you can call our partners at National Windscreens on:
