HSBC car insurance FAQs
Depending on the type of insurance cover you choose, HSBC may insure your vehicle for either an agreed value or for market value. The value that applies to your vehicle will be shown on your policy schedule. Here’s an article which explains the difference between market value and agreed value.
Yes, HSBC allows you to nominate a higher or lower basic excess (the first amount you need to pay on each claim) within a range determined by HSBC. This may have an affect on the cost of your car insurance premiums. A higher excess will typically result in a lower premium, while a lower excess will typically result in a higher premium. HSBC says you cannot vary or remove any imposed excess such as age excess or unnamed driver excess.
You can lodge a claim with HSBC online using the online claims form or over the phone.
To help complete your claim, HSBC recommends you have the following details at hand before you start:
- Your policy number;
- Information about the incident, such as the date and where the damage occurred;
- Details about the loss or damage you’re claiming for; and
- Information about any other people, vehicles or property involved.
HSBC says it will send you a renewal notice at least 14 days prior to the expiry date of your policy. This will advise whether or not HSBC will offer renewal or not. If HSBC offers renewal, the renewal notice will set out the renewal terms, including the new premium and excess. If you are happy with the proposed renewal terms and don’t need to notify HSBC of any matter required in the renewal notice, HSBC will automatically renew your car insurance policy on the terms proposed.
Make sure you consider comparing car insurance policies before simply renewing the same policy.
