The irony is that the claim is being processed, the damage assessment done, the courtesy car is on its way, mine will be driven off for repair etc etc. I've confirmed that I'm not entering a credit hire agreement with the repair company and it is genuinely a courtesy car (I should see what it is in about 20 mins).

Just in case anybody's curious Saga Motor Insurance is in fact Acromas Insurance, a company registered in Gibraltar and they have an extraordinary way with words.

Katanas at the ready then, Miss D  ;)

I insure her ladyship's car with L&V via the CSMA.
My car, being a lease agreement with Motability, is insured by them with someone or other ~ I care not.
When I had a claim on the motability car (some dozy bint backed into my stationary vehicle in a public car park) her insurers (Sheila's Wheels ~ wouldn't you have guessed it) tried this stunt, with increasing aggressiveness. Told them to p*ss orf several times, then they tried to weasel out of paying my excess of 75. I threatened to sue and they finally paid up and a week later they paid up again ~ (I kept quiet and banked the cheques)
I used to have a handle on life but it broke.

No excess to pay here. I'm now in possession of a brand new, shiny, black Seat Ibiza  eeek:
Seems quite adequate for my needs.

Scratches in car paintwork could become a thing of the past thanks to research that has made self-repairing paint a realistic possibility. Scientists in the United States have developed a type of polyurethane coating that mends itself in less than an hour when exposed to sunlight. They plan to develop it as a paint for cars and other surfaces that are subjected to heavy wear and tear

I'm sure your insurance policy will also cover this Pastis in years to come  lol:
