You need to read your Plan Guide carefully to know all the important events that will not be covered at claim stage.

You won't pay an excess if an insured third party causes an accident. Also, if you're on the Classic or Purple Plans, you won't pay an excess for any theft or weather-related claims.

For full details, download our Excess Annexure

Your excess is the amount you need to pay when you submit a claim. This is made up of your chosen basic excess and any other excess amounts that apply. You could have a voluntary excess, where you've chosen to increase your total excess and so reduce your monthly premium, or it could be a compulsory excess that applies in certain circumstances, e.g. if you've insured your vehicle for the incorrect class of use, you'll need to pay an additional, compulsory excess amount.

You can download more information about excesses. Read this along with your plan schedule to see what applies to you.

If you have a Discovery Card, you can use your Discovery Miles to fund your Discovery Insure excess.

If you have an approved Fast Track claim, we'll replace your specified electronic devices, such as cellphones, tablets or laptops, within 48 hours. If we don't meet these deadlines, we'll waive the basic excess for the claim.

You can download more details about the Fast Track claims

FastTrack claims is available under the portable possessions section of cover. With FastTrack claims, your specified electronic devices such as cellphones, tablets or laptops will be replaced within 48 hours if the claim is an approved FastTrack claim. If we don't meet these deadlines, we will waive the basic excess for the claim.

You can log your FastTrack claims on our website or on the Discovery Insure app.

If you need help in a vehicle or household emergency, contact Discovery 911 on 0860 999 911.

Our call centre is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some of the emergency services we offer:

  • Emergency electricity, plumbing and locksmith services
  • Emergency home security such as security guards
  • Accommodation if you've been a victim of theft or home invasion
  • Emergency roadside assistance such as towing or jumpstarting a vehicle

The information from your DQ-Track will be used to measure your driving behaviour and track the location of your vehicle in the event of a severe incident.

We will not use information from your DQ-Track when approving claims. The only time we will use the data from your DQ-Track in the claims process is to verify the time and location of an incident.

If you are involved in an accident and want to use data from the DQ-Track to prove your innocence and claim money from a third party, we will help you do so too. Discovery Insure, however, will not use such information without your permission.
