20    Policy wording
17.   As your policy is intended to cover the repair and/or replacement of defective or
      damaged parts, it does not additionally cover losses that may be caused by that
      defective or damaged part, unless otherwise stated in the policy terms and conditions.
      For example, your policy may cover repairs to or replacement of a wheel bearing but
      would not cover any loss of earnings that you may suffer while your insured vehicle is
      being repaired.

3.5 How to make a warranty claim

3.5.1 Making a warranty claim when in the UK.
Contact your nearest Volkswagen Authorised Retailer or Repairer and advise them that your
insured vehicle is protected by the Extended Warranty. The Volkswagen Authorised Retailer
or Repairer will contact us regarding claims on your behalf.


It is your responsibility to authorise any dismantling of the insured vehicle or any other work
required to diagnose any faults with the insured vehicle.


We will not pay for any diagnostic costs, other than the reasonable costs of diagnosis, should
a claim for a defective component be valid under this insurance.


If you are VAT registered you remain responsible for settling the VAT content of any
claim separately.


Volkswagen Approved Warranty Administration Services reserve the right to examine the
insured vehicle and to subject it to expert assessment in order to determine if your claim is
covered and how much we will pay for repairs. If you or anyone acting on your behalf acts
in a way which prevents us from being unable to determine the cause of failure by inspecting
the insured vehicle or defective components, then we will not pay all or any part of
your claim.


3.5.2 Making a warranty claim when in Continental Europe.
All repairs and costs are the responsibility of the policyholder while in countries outside the
UK. It is your responsibility to authorise any dismantling of the insured vehicle or any other
work required to diagnose any faults with the insured vehicle. Once the repairs have been
completed, you must settle the costs with the dealer and retain the invoice. Please also keep
the replaced components if possible until we have finished processing your claim as we may
need to see them.


Please contact Volkswagen Approved Warranty Administration Services within 30 days of any
completed repairs and you will be advised if they are covered under this insurance.


On your return to the UK, please send the invoice and copies of the insured vehicle’s service
records with a covering letter to:


Volkswagen Approved Warranty Administration Services, PO Box 1051, Croydon CR9 1RE.



22   Policy wording
For any enquiries please call Volkswagen Approved Warranty Administration Services
on 0845 641 9766.


Please retain a copy of the repair invoice and the original service records for your own
safekeeping as we will be unable to return these to you.


Your claim will then be processed and reimbursed to you in pounds sterling at the rate
of exchange for the relevant currency at the time of the repair, providing that your claim
is valid.


We will not pay more than the equivalent UK rates for the manufacturer’s list price for parts
and official labour times/costs which are necessary to repair or replace covered components.


If you are VAT registered you remain responsible for settling the VAT content of any
claim separately.




                                                                            Policy wording   23
4. General terms and conditions
These conditions apply to all sections of your warranty insurance and you must meet them
before we make a payment.


4.1 Telling us relevant facts
You must tell us about anything that may affect your cover (including also any changes
during the period of insurance). If you are not sure whether something is relevant, you must
tell us anyway. You should keep a record of any extra information you give us. If you do not
tell us about something that may be relevant, your insurance cover may be invalidated and
we may not cover any related claims.


4.2 Providing information
We will only provide the cover described in this insurance if, as far as you know, the
information you gave at the time of taking out this cover is true and complete.


4.3 Claims – your duties
If a claim occurs you must follow the relevant claims procedures described in this document
as soon as you can.


4.4 Claims – our rights
We can take over and carry out the defence or settlement of any claim. After we have made a
payment, we can pay to take legal action to get back any payment we have made under this
warranty insurance.


If we want to, we will examine the insured vehicle and will test damaged components.


4.5 Looking after your vehicle
You must take all reasonable steps to safeguard the insured vehicle against breakdown/
immobilisation and/or electrical or mechanical failure.


4.6 Fraud
If you or any beneficiary claiming under this insurance makes a claim that is false or
dishonest in any way, this insurance will not be valid and you will lose all benefits under it.

Details of services

Service in the UK
Cover applies to Vehicles registered with the DVLA in Swansea or Northern Ireland only.


UK Claims procedure and conditions
If You are unfortunate enough to break down, please follow these simple steps:
1. Telephone RAC using the appropriate Volkswagen Roadside Assistance helpline number
     – these are detailed on page 30.
2. Advise the operator that you are a Volkswagen policyholder.
3. Quote your Vehicle registration number.
4. Advise the operator of the location of Your Vehicle and the nature of the fault.


The operator will then advise how to proceed and what form of assistance would
be the most appropriate.


Remember to always call the Volkswagen Roadside Assistance helpline first. Please
do not go ahead and make Your own arrangements as RAC cannot reimburse costs
incurred without prior authorisation.


Roadside
If You are stranded on a public highway (or other road or area to which the public has the
right of access) as a result of a Breakdown to Your Vehicle, We will send a dedicated
technician, an RAC patrol, or contractor to help You.


We will try to repair Your Vehicle at the roadside. Roadside includes labour at the scene of the
Breakdown (but not labour at any garage to which the Vehicle is taken).


If We cannot repair the Vehicle at the roadside, and We believe repairs are unwise or cannot
be completed within a reasonable time, We will take the Vehicle and up to 8 people to a single
destination of Your choice within the UK. If You have no preferred destination, We will take
the Vehicle to a Volkswagen Retailer.


Roadside does not cover:
– Assistance following an accident, fire, theft or vandalism or other incident normally
     covered by a motor insurance policy. We can arrange assistance if You pay for the cost
     of assistance. (You may be able to recover these costs under the terms of Your motor
     insurance policy)
– Breakdowns which would be prevented by routine servicing of Your Vehicle


26      Volkswagen Roadside Assistance
– Replacing tyres or windows. We will try to arrange for replacements or repair but you will
  have to pay for them
– Missing or broken keys. We will try to arrange the services of a locksmith but You will have
  to pay for them
– The cost of ferry crossings, road toll and congestion charges
– Vehicles being demonstrated or delivered by motor traders, or used under trade plates
– Vehicles, which, according to our patrol or contractor, had broken down or were
  unroadworthy before You took out Your Policy
– Contaminated fuel problems. We will arrange for Your Vehicle to be taken to a local garage
  for assistance, but You will have to pay for the work carried out
– The cost of parts, fuel or other supplies
– Any vehicle storage charges incurred when You are using Our services other than those
  necessary as a result of premises being closed out of normal business hours
– Labour at any garage to which the Vehicle is taken
– The tow or transport of any Vehicle, which, in Our reasonable opinion, is loaded beyond
  its legal limit
– Any Vehicle in a position where We cannot work on it or tow it, or wheels have been
  removed, We can arrange to rectify this but You will have to pay the costs involved
– Any animals in Your Vehicle, please note that their onward transportation is at Our
  discretion and solely at Your risk. We will not insure any animal, including livestock in
  transit, during any onward transportation We undertake.


Recovery
Recovery has the same terms and conditions as Roadside but with the following variations:


If We cannot get Your Vehicle repaired locally within what We deem to be a reasonable time,
We will take the Vehicle and up to 8 people Home or to a single address anywhere else. If
there are more than 5 people this may require two separate Vehicles. An adult must
accompany any persons under the age of 16.


You can use Recovery if You are ill, and there are no passengers who can drive the Vehicle,
so that You cannot continue Your trip. You must show Us a doctor’s medical certificate
confirming Your inability to drive (in these cases, We will provide this service as We see fit).


Recovery does not cover:
– Any Vehicle which in Our reasonable opinion was broken down or unroadworthy at the
  time You took out Your Policy
– The use of Recovery as a way to avoid paying repair costs
– A second Recovery if We consider that the original fault of a first Recovery has not been
  properly repaired.
                                                              Volkswagen Roadside Assistance       27
At Home
At Home cover entitles You to the service described under Roadside within a quarter
of a mile of Your Home address or where You normally keep the Vehicle.


Onward Travel
Onward Travel benefits must be arranged at the time of Breakdown and cannot be requested
later. You are entitled to one of the following extra benefits once We have decided that We
cannot get the Vehicle repaired locally:
– Replacement car hire
– Alternative transport costs
– Hotel accommodation.


You can use the Onward Travel benefits from Your Home address or within a quarter of
a mile of Your home address. This excludes incidents where We have been called to rectify
failed repairs.


Replacement car hire
We will pay for:
– Up to 48 hours hire cost of a manual car of similar cubic capacity to Your Vehicle up to
     1600 cc for the duration of the repairs to the Vehicle in accordance with Your Onward
     Travel entitlement, for one incident
– Insurance (including collision damage waiver).


Replacement car hire is subject to availability and Our supplier’s terms and conditions,
which will usually include:
1. Age limits.
2. The need to have a current driving licence, and, if held, a driving licence photo card,
     with You.
3. Limits on acceptable endorsements.
4. The need to provide a valid credit card number (Alternatively, the car rental provider will
     require a deposit of no less than £50 and may also undertake a simple credit check, before
     releasing the vehicle to You).


Hire cars are not usually available with a towbar, and therefore Your caravan or trailer will be
recovered under Recovery with Your broken down Vehicle.


If We decide that a hire car is not a practicable solution for any reason, hotel accommodation
or alternative transport will be provided instead.



28      Volkswagen Roadside Assistance
Alternative transport
We will reimburse You for standard class rail or other transport of our choice for up to
8 people to reach the end of their journey within the UK. We will pay up to £150 a person
or £500 for a group whichever is less.


Hotel accommodation
We will arrange and reimburse You for one night’s bed and breakfast for up to 8 people
in a hotel of our choice.


We will pay up to £150 a person or £500 for each Party whichever is less.


You will have to pay for any extra hotel or transport costs.


What is not covered:
– A second use of the Onward Travel benefits if the original fault has not been
  properly repaired
– Other charges arising from Your use of the hire car, such as fuel costs, deposit, any
  insurance excess charges, collecting and returning the vehicle and any costs due to You
  keeping the car after the agreed period of hire (You must settle these charges directly with
  the supplier)
– If You are unfortunate enough to have an incident with the hire vehicle and You make
  an insurance claim, You will be responsible for paying any excess.


European Cover
European Cover applies to Vehicles registered with the DVLA in Swansea or Northern Ireland
only and is available throughout Europe.

3. Breakdowns on motorways
On continental motorways (including service areas) You MUST use the roadside emergency
telephones. You cannot call RAC control centres from these. You will be connected to the
police or authorised motorway service, who will send a breakdown recovery vehicle.
However, this will only be to the recovery company’s own depot if they cannot fix Your
Vehicle – contact RAC using the numbers at 2 above as soon as You can, if possible from the
recovery company’s depot.


You may have to pay labour and towing charges on the spot – an authorised tariff is normally
applicable. These items are covered and You should obtain a receipt to claim a refund on
Your return home.


Mobile and car phones
RAC will not reimburse the cost of any telephone calls you make in connection with any
Breakdown under this Policy (including mobile phone calls).


It may not be possible for an RAC control centre to call a mobile or car phone but when it is,
You may still have to pay the cost of any international call. Some service providers charge for
calls to freephone numbers. The regulations on the use of mobile and car phones vary from
country to country. Please check with Your service provider that Your phone meets the
requirements and standards for the countries in which You are travelling.

collision damage waiver (see ‘Important self-drive hire car information’) and replacement
Green Card as necessary, or second/standard class rail, or a combination of both.


RAC will in its sole discretion decide which course of action to adopt, but RAC will take into

notified, RAC will not pay any further expenses other than the costs of collection.


This benefit is also available if Your Vehicle is stolen and not recovered within 24 hours of
reporting the matter to the police. A police report must be obtained. However, this benefit
will cease if and when Your Vehicle is recovered in a roadworthy condition.

either:
a) Vehicle repatriation to the United Kingdom
     We will pay for the cost of taking the Vehicle by road transporter from abroad to Your
     Home or chosen UK repairer for repair in the UK.


     When repatriation is authorised it normally takes 10-14 working days for delivery to a UK
     address from most west European countries. At busy times and from east European
     countries it may take longer.


     If the Vehicle has been fitted with a roof box or bicycle rack, You must remove and place
     it inside the Vehicle. The roof box keys need to be left with Your Vehicle keys.


     We will not pay for:
     1. Claims for any repatriation not authorised by the appropriate RAC control centre.

       it will cost more than the UK market value of Your Vehicle according to Glass’s guide.

     4. Any claim if Your Vehicle is being repatriated and Customs in any country find its
       contents are breaking the law.

     round trip – limited to room only.


  We will not pay for:

  3. The costs of more than one person.


Note: The appropriate RAC control centre will make the sole decision whether Your Vehicle
should be repaired abroad for You (or someone nominated by You) to return and collect.


Authority for repatriation or repair
If Your Vehicle is not able to be driven due to a road traffic accident, fire, break-in or theft,
any damage which You are entitled to have repaired by Your motor insurers must be reported
to them immediately. Your insurers must decide whether to declare the Vehicle is a write-off,
authorise repair abroad or have the Vehicle repatriated. We cannot repatriate the Vehicle
unless Your insurers first give their permission.


We also reserve the right to negotiate with them to reclaim costs incurred. If Your insurers
cannot or do not give permission to repatriate then it is Our decision alone whether to
declare the Vehicle a write-off, or repatriate or repair locally a Vehicle which cannot be driven
as a result of a Breakdown, or as a result of a road traffic accident, fire or theft, for which You
do not have fully comprehensive cover.


The additional services only apply in Europe and not in the UK.
Additional Services, we will pay for the costs of providing the following if applicable:


Vehicle break-in, emergency repairs
We will pay for:
The cost of immediate emergency repairs, up to £175, necessary to make Your Vehicle
secure in the event of damage to windows, or windscreen caused solely by forcible entry,
or attempted forcible entry provided You report the matter to the police either before
contacting Us or within 24 hours of contacting Us, and You have obtained a written report
from the police.




                                                               Volkswagen Roadside Assistance       35

The cost of repairs if they are not to make your vehicle secure and for the reasons stated.


Any repair costs if You do not obtain a police report and submit it with Your claim.

1. Freight, handling and ancillary charges for dispatch of spare parts not obtainable locally.
2. The fare for one person to collect parts from the appropriate railway station or airport.

Policy requirements and limitations

A. Service in the UK and Abroad

Credit card details
We will require Your credit card details if We arrange a service for You which is not covered by
Your Policy or if it exceeds the Policy limits set out in the part entitled ‘Policy Description’.
If You do not provide Us with Your credit card details RAC will not be able to provide certain
services which will be notified to You when credit card details are requested.


Caravans and trailers
The Vehicle restrictions in this Policy apply equally to caravans and trailers except that the
maximum length of trailers and/or caravans must not exceed 7.6 m. If the Vehicle which has
suffered a Breakdown is towing a caravan or trailer and We provide recovery, the caravan or
trailer will be recovered together with the Vehicle to a single destination. Other than as set
out in this paragraph caravans and trailers are not covered by this Policy.


We do our best to find solutions to motoring problems, but We regret We cannot arrange a
replacement caravan or trailer in the event of breakdown or accident damage which cannot
be repaired. It is also virtually impossible to hire vehicles with towbars and it may become
necessary to repatriate a caravan or trailer together with a towing vehicle which cannot be
repaired abroad by the return date.


Unforeseeable losses or events
We will not be responsible for any unforeseeable losses nor for any indirect losses,
consequential losses, losses of profit, loss of revenue or anticipated savings, loss of contracts,
losses that were not caused directly by Us, or for any business losses. This does not reduce
Your statutory rights to claim compensation in relation to the services We provide. This does
not apply to any claim You have for death or personal injury.


We do not guarantee the provision of any of the benefits under Your Policy, if there is
anything beyond Our reasonable control or the reasonable control of any service provider
which prevents Us or a service provider from providing that benefit. Benefits may be refused
if You or any of Your Party behaves in a threatening or abusive way to any persons providing
service under Your Policy.




38    Volkswagen Roadside Assistance
Taxi bookings
In some circumstances it can be quicker and easier for You to arrange a taxi. We may ask You
to make Your own arrangements for taxi service. If so please send Your receipts to us and We
will reimburse You.


Service providers
The garages, breakdown/recovery companies, repairers, car hire companies and other third
party service providers whose services are arranged by RAC on Your behalf and/or paid for
under the Policy by RAC on Your behalf are not approved by RAC. They are not agents of RAC
and RAC cannot be held liable for acts or omissions of such garages or other third parties.
You are responsible for authorising repairs and making sure any repairs to Your Vehicle are
carried out to Your satisfaction.


B. Service – Abroad only

Motor insurance
RAC European Cover is not motor vehicle insurance. We strongly recommend You tell Your
motor insurers before taking Your Vehicle abroad. If You do not, Your insurance policy will
only cover You for damage You might cause to other people or their property (third party
cover). This means that You will not be covered for any loss or damage to Your Vehicle. Your
insurers will also need to know if You are towing a caravan or trailer.


Availability of service in eastern Europe
Every effort is made by RAC to make sure that a good quality service is provided in eastern
European countries but this may not necessarily be to the same standards as in western
Europe. The situation varies from country to country but time delays may occur, telephones
are sometimes not available, garage facilities may be inadequate, spare parts are often not
available, etc. You should also be aware that unleaded fuel may not be widely available.
Service in certain countries may become disrupted or unavailable due to prevailing
conditions, for which RAC cannot accept liability. Information can be obtained from the
Foreign & Commonwealth Office – www.fco.gov.uk; or by telephoning The FCO Travel Advice
Unit on: +44 (0)207 008 1500.


Important self-drive hire car information
We will normally try to arrange a hire car similar in seating capacity and volume to, but not
necessarily the same as, Your Vehicle, if there is one available. If You were travelling in an
MPV or similar vehicle We may arrange two hire cars. We will only arrange this if there are
two qualified drivers in Your Party. Otherwise, We will arrange alternative means of transport.



                                                              Volkswagen Roadside Assistance     39
Self-drive car hire arranged under Your Policy will be subject to the normal conditions of the
hiring company. These will include limitations on driver age, driving convictions and other
licence endorsements etc. The driver must also have held a full UK driving licence or
equivalent for a minimum of one year (two years for France).


Your credit card details will also be required as security for the hire and to cover extras such
as top up of the fuel tank when returning the vehicle. Car hire companies insist on having
credit card details at the time of booking and the card must be produced at the time of hiring
the car. The name on the credit card and the name of the driver of the hire vehicle must be
the same. Switch cards and debit cards are not acceptable. If You leave a hire car at a different
location to the one arranged by the RAC control centre You must pay any collection charge
which may be made. Please note that many car hire companies across Europe charge a
damage excess which is not covered by the collision damage waiver (CDW). This means that
if the car is damaged during the hire period You could be liable for the equivalent of the first
£150 – £550 (approximately) and have Your credit card charged. In some cases the amount
could be higher and varies according to hire company, category of hire car and location. The
CDW covers the amount above the excess.


In some parts of Europe hire cars are not allowed to cross national borders. In Greece and
eastern Europe international drop-offs are not permitted. It may be necessary therefore to
arrange two hires or alternative transport to complete Your journey. A car hired abroad must
not be brought into the United Kingdom. A second car hire will be arranged for the United
Kingdom part of Your journey.


We cannot guarantee a hire car will be available.


We cannot arrange the hire of motorised caravans, motorcycles, convertibles or vehicles with
towbar, roof rack, roof boxes, automatic gearbox, sports cars, 4X4 or luxury class vehicles and
cannot guarantee the hire of minibuses or vans.


We will not be responsible for any delays in obtaining a hired vehicle and cannot guarantee
to provide it in time to connect with Your pre-booked ferry, etc. You may have to collect a
hired vehicle from the nearest available place of supply.


Special requirements for vehicles with over 9 seats
The supply of minibuses as a replacement vehicle can often prove difficult. When one is
available the following regulations apply:




40   Volkswagen Roadside Assistance
Drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a full year’s car driving experience. Special
documents and tachographs are mandatory throughout the EU. For more information
contact your local Department of Transport Area Office for details.


Repayment of credit
You must pay back to Us on demand:
a) any costs We have paid for which You are not covered under Your Policy
b) the cost of any spare parts supplied.


Spares dispatch
After You have asked the appropriate RAC control centre to dispatch parts You are
responsible for paying for them in full, even if You later obtain them locally.


We will arrange to dispatch parts as quickly as possible but delays will occur at weekends and
bank holidays. We will not be responsible for manufacturers’ or suppliers’ errors, loss or
damage of parts in transit or any delay in delivery.


Policy exclusions (Service in the UK and Abroad)

In addition to any limits and exclusions noted elsewhere in Your Policy, Your Policy does
not cover;


1.   Any costs which are not directly covered by the terms and conditions of this cover.
2.   Costs for anything which was not caused by the incident You are claiming for.
3.   Vehicles which have broken down as a result of taking part in a motor sport event which
     takes place off the road and/or is not subject to the normal rules of the road or which
     Breakdown as a result of a motor sport event which takes place on permanent or
     temporarily constructed race track (e.g. Snetterton, Oulton Park) or rally circuit. For
     example, vehicles participating in a treasure hunt, touring assembly or navigational
     road rally which takes place on the road and comply with normal rules of the road are
     covered but vehicles participating in any off road rally will not be covered.
4.   Any claim if you break down at a motor trader’s premises, garage or premises offering
     vehicle repair.
5.   The cost of all parts, garage, labour or other costs in excess of Your Policy limits set out
     in the part entitled ‘Policy Description’. Please note these costs in Europe are likely to
     be higher than in the UK.
6.   Loss caused by any delay, whether the benefit or service is being provided by Us or
     someone else (for example a garage, hotel, car hire company, carrier, etc).
7.   Any incident affecting a vehicle hired under the terms of Your Policy.


                                                              Volkswagen Roadside Assistance      41
8.    Routine servicing of the Vehicle, cost of replacing tyres, missing or broken keys*, or
      replacing windows. We may be able to arrange for the provision of these Services but
      You must pay any costs incurred.
      * Service in the UK: If we are unable to open Your Vehicle for any reason, We will arrange for a
       locksmith to attend where available, but You will be responsible for the costs. If a locksmith is not
       available, We will arrange for Your Vehicle to be taken to a nearby garage for assistance but You will
       have to pay for any work carried out on the Vehicle. Any other Recovery may be arranged but You
       will be liable for any additional costs. Whilst abroad: Keys which are locked inside a Vehicle are
       covered and We can arrange for a RAC patrol or Contractor to attend. However, any damage which
       may occur in trying to retrieve the keys will be at Your risk.
9.    Any claim caused directly or indirectly by:
      a) Your property being held, taken, returned, destroyed or damaged under the order
         of any Government or other Authority;
      b) war, invasion, civil unrest, revolution, terrorism or any similar event.
10.   Any claim caused directly or indirectly by the overloading of Your Vehicle and/or any
      caravan or trailer.
11.   Any claim as a result of Vehicle Breakdown due to:
      a) running out of oil or water;
      b) frost damage;
      c) rust or corrosion;
      d) tyres which are not roadworthy.
12.   Any claim caused directly or indirectly by the effect of intoxicating liquors or drugs.
13.   Any claim where Your Vehicle is being driven by persons who do not hold a full United
      Kingdom or other recognised and accepted driving licence.
14.   Any claim which You have made successfully under any other policy of insurance held
      by You. If the value of Your claim is more than the amount You can get from Your other
      insurance We may pay the difference subject to Policy limits and exclusions.
15.   The cost of any transportation, accommodation or care of any animal. Any onward
      transportation is at our discretion and solely at Your risk. We will not insure any animal
      during any onward transportation We may undertake.
16.   Any period outside Your Period of Cover.
17.   Any vehicle other than a car, estate car, MPV or 4 x 4 sport utility vehicle and provided
