What is windscreen cover?

Windscreen cover is something that can be added or included as part of your car insurance policy. This is included in most fully comprehensive car insurance policies as standard, but it can be added to third party, fire and theft policies for a small charge.

Adding windscreen cover to your policy allows you to reclaim the cost of any windscreen repairs, or even a full windscreen replacement if necessary. And, despite being called “windscreen” cover, it also often covers all other windows and possibly sunroofs too.

Why should I choose windscreen cover?

So, you are probably wondering why you need to have windscreen cover at all. Well, chips in the windscreen are incredibly common, and depending on the size of these, and where they are, your car could actually fail its MOT completely.

And not only that, windscreen chips can quickly develop into large cracks and dangerous fractures which could cause your windscreen to fail on the smallest impact. Driving with a windscreen in this condition therefore is very dangerous, and it’s something you should repair as soon as possible. Windscreen cover insurance means that you wont be left out of pocket.

If you do claim on your windscreen cover, you may have to the pay the excess which will differ from company to company. But in a lot of cases, repairing small chips or cracks is usually free for you.
