Car Excess Insurance UBS

As anyone any experience claiming on the car excess insurance provided with the UBS gold cards?

Have had unsavoury incident with a car rental company recently and eventually have given in and will settle what they are claiming as damage

Re: Car Excess Insurance UBS

According to UBS

To make a claim, please contact Allianz Global Assistance by telephone at +41-44-283 38 05

Did you do that? When I've needed to claim against excess insurance, I've not argued with the hire car company - I've paid and just handed it to the insurer (who reimbursed me pretty quickly). Let them handle it.

Re: Car Excess Insurance UBS

I have not claimed on the car hire excess but I have used the same policy to claim on the lost/damaged baggage and it was pretty straightforward.

Resolved quickly and painlessly.
