How do I make a claim?

Before you have any work carried out, you must contact our claims team on 0800 060 8610 or email us. We’ll need to provide an authorisation code to the garage for the repairs to be done.

The full claims process can be found here.

Note: We won’t be able to pay for any repairs that are carried out without our authorisation.

Why is my warranty different to the above?

Some of our dealers offer customised products, so you may find that your cover is slightly different. If you’d like to discuss the cover you’ve been offered, please get in touch with us or speak to your dealer.

How do I take out a WSG warranty?

You’ll need to purchase a used car from one of our approved dealerships to receive or be offered a WSG Silver car warranty. Please contact us to find out who your nearest dealers are.

In most cases, your plan can then be upgraded or extended around the start date, or renewed around the expiry date.

Do I need to use one of your garages?

In most cases, you’ll be able to choose whether you use our car repairer network or your own garage. We work directly with hundreds of garages across the UK, which also means that we settle claims with them directly.

If you use your own, please bear in mind that we have a set labour rate so any excess labour charges over and above this will be your responsibility. The garage also may want you to settle the bill first, in which case we’ll reimburse you once we’ve received the repair invoice and any documents requested.

Depending on the nature of the claim, your vehicle may need to be seen by a specialist. We also work directly with a number of repairers that specialise in systems such as turbos, gearboxes, engines, drive lines, ECUs and power steering.
