What is "Total Loss"?

Total Loss means where an insured person has claimed under their Motor Insurance Policy and the claim has been settled, with the vehicle being surrendered to the Insurer of Your Motor Insurance Policy or otherwise, and a Total Loss payment made.

Does it make a difference if my vehicle was purchased cash or finance?

Is my vehicle covered if I'm driving in Europe?

Yes, the vehicle is covered in the European Union for a maximum of 30 days in any 12 months of cover, providing the cover provided by your Motor Insurance policy is an equivalent level of cover as you would have enjoyed in the UK.
