    Default Courtesy cars from dealers?

    I have had a few warranty items done at the same dealers local to me and had a courtesy car everytime no problems, even got an astra once. But tried to get one for when my car goes in for service and they won't give me one, but my other local dealer will as long as I arrange insurance.

    What is the difference?

    I guess I am better off sorting my own insurance anyway as they won't ripp me off for high excess, plus my insurance have no problems just phone them and give them details of courtesy car.

    For warranty work, the dealership invoices Retailer Warranties for the courtesy car payment and insurance cover

    For service work, the dealership charges you
    In some cases you need to pay admin fees, and so on, to add the car to your policy
    The same also applies to any other third party making use of their courtesy cars, such as bodywork repair work under an insurance claim however in most cases you can also avoid that payment by contacting the insurance company in advance and making them aware that you will not be making any such payments!
