Most policies have an excess that you will need to consider before lodging a claim. For example, most motor insurance policies have an excess of $400 to $500. If the damage you wish to claim is below this figure, you cannot make a claim. If the claim amount is more than the excess but not much more, you should consider the implications of the claim on next year's renewal and possibly the effect on your no claim bonus.
How can I enquire about an existing claim?
