Charges for damage are based on the normal market price for a quality repair using software called CABAS which is recognised by Insurance companies worldwide. It is not economical to repair every scratch and dent, and therefore we base some of our charges on the decrease in value of the car if it was sold with the damage.

No insurance covers the damage or loss of extra equipment like for example kitchen utensils, sleeping bags, chairs, tables, roof box, GPS or WiFi box!
