FAQ

Why does it matter how long I have had my driver’s licence?

Car insurance premiums can be affected by the length of time you have had your driver’s licence. It is common practice in the insurance industry to rate a new driver as a higher risk. With Oakhurst, of course, you have the chance to prove this wrong by driving well and participating in our Good Driver programme.

How do I claim back my excess from a third party if the accident was not my fault?

Our dedicated claims and recoveries department will try to assist in recovering your excess from the person who caused the accident. Although we will fight hard to recover your excess, practical considerations may come to the fore and the recovery cannot be guaranteed. It can be a lengthy process if the other person disputes their liability or if we have to trace the person and follow up on missing information.

What are the differences between retail, trade and market value?

Retail value is the value that a dealer would sell a car for, taking its age, condition and mileage into account. Trade value is what a dealer would pay you when you trade in your car. Market value is the average between the retail and trade values. If your car is covered for its market value and is then written off, stolen or hijacked and not recovered, the settlement amount is based on the market value minus the excess. This same principle applies for cars that are insured for retail and trade value.

How can I change the driver information listed on my policy?

You can change this information by logging in to your profile on our website or by calling your personal portfolio consultant on 0861 001 041. Changes are usually processed within 24 hours.
