General FAQs
What is an excess?

An insurance excess refers to the amount of money that you, as the policyholder, agree to pay towards the cost of a claim. For example, where a claim has a total cost of €1000 and your excess is €250, you will pay the excess and your insurer will pay €750.

This is a standard practice in insurance and is designed to share the financial responsibility between you and your insurer.

For details on the excesses applicable under your policy, please refer to your schedule.

What do I do when there has been an incident?

To assist us with validating your claim, please take as many photos as possible and retain all damaged property so that we can inspect.

If your claim involves a third party, please ensure you exchange details with them so we can communicate with them on your behalf.

What is home insurance?

Home Insurance is an insurance policy that can offer cover for your home & contents. Taking out a policy can help save you money in the long run as it ensures you won’t have to pay out of pocket for damages or stolen contents.

When should you call us?

If you have suffered any loss which may be covered by this policy, you must call us to notify the incident. Should you decide you do not wish to claim, and no payments are made on your policy, there will be no effect on your OUTbonus

Why do I need car insurance?

A car is a significant purchase. If something goes wrong or you're involved in an accident, repairs can prove expensive – especially if there’s another car involved.

Secondly, by law you must have at least Third-Party Cover in Ireland. Driving without insurance is an offence and can result in fines, penalty points and a mandatory court appearance. In some cases, you could even be sent to prison or disqualified from driving.
