What excess is

At King Price, we keep excess simple

In a nutshell

If you’ve compared car insurance quotes online, you’ve probably come across the term ‘excess’. But what does this mean?

Well, simply put, your excess is the first amount you need to pay in the event of a claim. It’s payable by you (the policyholder) to your insurer and in some cases, you may get it back once your claim’s been finalised.

To make our excesses simple for our clients, we’ve restructured our insurance excess amounts to make your universe a brighter, easier, and cheaper place.

Best of all, with us you get to choose the basic car excess that suits your pocket and preference. The higher the excess, the lower your monthly premium and vice versa.
