Available now (click here for cover details), the insurance is underwritten by “A Rated” Hiscox Insurance Company Limited to provide peace of mind that the policy is regulated by the FCA and fully protected by the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

All repairs will be carried out by the UK’s leading SMART repairers ChipsAway. Operating for over 20 years their highly trained technicians operate from their fully equipped mobile workshops, meaning they can come to your work or home to conveniently carry out a repair

How does it work?

Scuffs, scratches, dents and paint chips on a car are a frustrating reality.

With our new cover, you can make up to 3 claims a year to have those annoying bits of damage repaired by specialists from ChipsAway.

They’ll do what’s called a SMART repair. SMART stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology, an alternative to a full bodyshop repair for small areas of damage to vehicle paintwork. It isn’t as labour intensive as a bodyshop restoration, as it focuses on the area that’s actually damaged rather than potentially removing, repairing and respraying an entire panel, and for that reason is much more cost effective.

They’ll even come to your home or workplace to carry out the repair – they just need an off-road area and a power supply, and you can leave them to it!

Cover features

  • The policy can cover damage on a single panel of your car up to 300mm in length and up to 3mm in depth – if it’s a dent there’s no depth limit.
  • The policy has a small excess of £15 per claim, or Excess Protection can be added so that there’s no excess to pay.
  • The cover lasts for 12 months and can be renewed every year, as long as the car has covered fewer than 70,000 miles and is less than 7 years old.


Simon England, Managing Director of ALA, is thrilled with the new partnership:

It’s very exciting to be able to offer this cover to new and existing customers. We’ve all had an annoying little scratch or trolley dent on our car and had the stress of getting it fixed. This cover takes all the hassle out of it, especially knowing that the repairs are all being done by a highly reputable team of technicians.
