Claims

Who do I  contact in the event of a claim?

In the event that you suffer a loss you should notify your insurers as soon as possible.
See the table below for the claims phone number for the insurer that you are insured by.

Aviva UK    0345 302 8424

You should also:

  • take all reasonable steps to minimise the loss >
  • take all reasonable steps to prevent a loss spreading
  • notify the claim promptly
  • advise the appropriate authorities in the event of a loss or damage (e.g. police)
  • not hinder the insurer in the claims investigation process and assist them at all times
  • not carry out any repair work without the express consent of the insurer unless you are doing so to prevent further loss.

Failure to comply with the above may render the claim invalid
When reporting a claim you should have available the following information:

  • the correct policy number
