If you are involved in an accident in your lease vehicle, you must notify the finance provider and your insurance company immediately, even if the damage is minimal.

Telling insurance company

If you decide to pay for the repairs to preserve your no-claims discount, make sure you speak to your finance provider first to determine whether its approval is required. Usually, all repair work must be completed to a professional standard by repairers who provide a full warranty on their work.
