Making A Claim - Classic Insurance

When making a claim, you need to notify us as soon as reasonably practicable after you are aware of the damage to, or loss of, your vehicle. If you suspect theft, burglary, illegal conversion, arson or malicious damage, you must also notify the Police.

You must also complete a claim form as soon as reasonably possible.

Simply call us on 0800 PROTECT (0800 776 832) and follow the prompts to lodge a Classic Vehicle claim, or you can email us on

If you were involved in an accident then here are some quick points to remember:

- Safety is paramount so secure the scene 
- Do not admit liability
- Obtain the other vehicles details, including of the driver
- See if there were any witnesses
- Secure your vehicle
- Contact Protecta Insurance

Please note that the above list is just a guide, each accident scene is different. If there are any injuries, you must report the accident to the Police, and it’s important to obtain medical assistance if you suspect anyone may have been hurt. In general, the more information you can provide to us on the details of the accident, the faster we can have your claim settled, so try to make notes on everything while it is still fresh in your mind.

Classic Insurance Claim Forms

We can post you a copy of the appropriate claims form, or you can download and print them off yourself using the following links. You still have to notify us of the claim as soon as reasonably practicable and before the claim form is submitted:

Please note that these forms are for making a claim on your Protecta Classic insurance policy; if you'd like to make a claim under a 
regular car or motorcycle insurance policy then please locate and download the appropriate claim form from our "Making a claim" section.
