Adding the Reduced Damage Excess bolt-on

Our Reduced Damage Excess bolt-on allows you to reduce your excess from £1000 to £350. When you choose this bolt-on, the other features of your cover remain exactly the same:

  • You’ll continue to benefit from our fully comprehensive insurance.
  • All the drivers registered on your Onto account (the main driver and any additional drivers) will continue to be covered.  
  • The reduced excess only covers one car at a time. If you have two or more Onto cars in your household, you will need separate excess reductions applied.
  • You cannot reduce the excess any further than this.

How to add the bolt-on

The process of purchasing the Reduced Damage Excess bolt-on differs for new, existing and Business customers:

New customers - You can add the bolt-on when you’re signing up. After you’ve entered your delivery address, you’ll be given a choice of bolt-on options. 

Existing customers - If you’re already an Onto member, you can only add the bolt-on when you swap cars. You’ll be given a choice of bolt-on options when you’re going through the process of choosing your new model.
