Renault Accident Support Line FAQs
What is the first thing I need to do when I have an accident?

What happens with my insurance company?
If you are not at fault for the accident, Renault Accident Support Line (RASL) will contact your insurance company and agree with them how your claim will be handled. We will liaise with them on your behalf, meaning you don’t have to.
If you are at fault, the Renault Approved Accident Repair Centre (RAARC) dealing with your repair will liaise with your insurance company while the repairs are being carried out.

How will I know when the repairs will be completed?
We monitor the repair and liaise with all interested parties until your vehicle is returned to you.
Am I entitled to a replacement vehicle if my vehicle is written off?
Yes, if the accident was not your fault and we can prove a need for a replacement vehicle similar to your own. Renault Accident Support Line (RASL) will arrange for you to have a temporary replacement vehicle whilst your claim is settled. You will need to return this vehicle no later than 7 days after receipt of cheque, not when it’s cleared.
Do I have to pay my insurance excess?
If you are not at fault, we will claim from the other party’s insurance policy. By doing this, you will not be invoking your own insurance policy and therefore there will be no policy excess to pay.
Will my No Claims Bonus be affected?
If the accident was not your fault it may temporarily be affected depending on the individual insurer’s policy. On the successful completion of the claim, your no claims bonus is reinstated.
