Vauxhall Insurance Services

  • We know little scrapes happen. If anything happens to your vehicle you can be sure that one of our own repairers will be working on it.
  • We keep it genuine. Your Vauxhall is built from lots of different materials. Replacing one of those using nongenuine methods or parts might not retain the same safety standards. So we’ll only ever use genuine parts and approved repairers.
  • We’ll make it shiny and new. If your vehicle’s written off in the first year, we’ll replace it with a brand  new one.*
  • We’ll keep you on the move. You can have a free courtesy vehicle if a Vauxhall repairer needs to work on your vehicle. Subject to availability. Comprehensive customers only.
  • We’re always here. You’ll be able to access our UK claims service 365 days a year. Yes, even on Christmas day
