So I reversed into a parked car in a car park causing minor damage

No one was in the other vehicle and I gave my details to the other person who took pics and noted my insurance details etc..

Do I need to take any further action or should I expect a call from my insurance company?

Should I preemptively contact them?

Would it be cheaper if I just settle in person?

You've had an accident. Contact your insurance company.

Re: So I reversed into a parked car in a car park causing minor damage

Someone did that to me on a Monday morning.
They did the right thing, left a note under my wiper with their phone number.
I rang them, met them the same day, filled out the accident sheet, we both signed it.
The car went to the repair shop the same week and was fixed by Friday.
Easy, simple, painless when done through the insurance company.

I recommend using insurance. Contact them straight away.
That's what you pay them for.
