    No, courtesy cars are not only offered to customers going through an insurance claim. We offer all our customers that need a car one of our courtesy cars. Subject to availability.

    Do you have to provide a courtesy car to everyone?

    We only have a limited number of cars available, though of course we always try to accommodate all our customers as much as possible. On a lot of insurance policies a courtesy car is an optional extra, which can mean your policy premium could increase, marginally. If we are unable to supply a courtesy car, we advise that you speak to your insurance provider.

      Car bumper repair FAQ


      What is the difference between a hire car and a courtesy car?

      A hire car can be hired from a specific car hire company, for any length of time and for any reason. A courtesy car, on the other hand, is provided only when your own car is in need of servicing or repairs. They can be available free, covered by insurance, or at a reduced rate.

      Will my insurance cover a courtesy car?

      It may do, or it may not – or it may be an optional extra. This depends entirely on your insurance policy and the provider. We recommend contacting your insurance provider if you’re unsure. And if not, you can still get a courtesy car through Mendadent.

      Do scratch repair pens work?

      Car scratch repair pens don’t contain paint, but instead a clear lacquer. If the scratch is very superficial, small, and right on the surface, they can hide it pretty effectively – but for anything more extensive, it’s best to get professionals involved to have your car looking good as new.
