Of course the swoop vehicle has plenty of time to drive off before you’ve even had a chance to take a look at their number plate. If you’re not aware of this technique, you’ll probably innocently tell the police that the swoop vehicle caused the accident.

If not, you might as well increase the excess (providing you can afford to) and pay less for the policy. Also, remember that unfortunately, even if you don’t claim you do have to tell your insurer that you’ve had an accident and your premium may go up as a result. If paying by credit card, check if the insurer or provider charges a fee for doing so – though the fee is usually less than the interest charged on monthly instalments.
