Reduced Excess for Fast Reporting of Incidents
Century Underwriting recognise the importance of early reporting of incidents to provide a first-class service and to manage costs effectively. Therefore, with this in mind and to reward policyholders who are able to report incidents at an early stage we offer the opportunity to reduce the primary policy excess applicable to the claim.
To qualify for a 50% reduction in the primary excess applicable to the claim, the incident must be reported immediately or at the very latest within 24 hours of the incident occurring. Please refer to the policy wording for full details.
