Car Insurance - Courtesy Cars - Fact vs Myth A vehicle is stolen every 147 seconds in the UK - Over half are never restored to their owner.
How would you cope if your vehicle was stolen tonight?
We sincerely hope that it will never happen
BigNews.Biz - Mar 24,2009 - Theft Protect was created to fill a a gap that exists in the UK courtesy car marketplace. Most UK motorists believe that courtesy cars will always be available in any eventuality. Not so!
The fact is that courtesy cars are usually provided by crash repair centres, not insurance companies. They are only provided if the repairer is guaranteed the repair to your own damaged vehicle.
A large percentage of cars that are stolen in the UK are never restored to their owner, or recovered beyond economical repair. In these cases, no courtesy car is provided under normal circumatances. In any event, if your car is stolen, typically it might be 10-14 days before it is recovered, if at all, which means you will be immobile until help comes along.
Theft Protect is an insurance policy, available from any one of our hundreds of FSA authorised insurance brokers, finance companies or motor dealers.
The policy provides a like-for-like replacement vehicle for up to 28 days in the event that your car is stolen or written off. Theft Protect fills the gap that courtesy car programs do not.
Theft Protect is available from appointed brokers, dealers and finance companies.
