Quick, no-fuss claims administration

When it comes to driving in South Africa, potholes are a fact of life

More cars on the road and severe weather patterns mean that road surfaces are getting worse with each passing year. At the same time, local government and roads authorities are struggling to keep up with surface repairs.

Pothole damage to your car can be hugely expensive to repair. Our Added Value for Potholes service helps you recover 100% of your repair costs by handling your claim against the relevant road authority. With this service, you get the full compensation you’re due for damage to your tyres, rims, mag wheels or your car itself, saving you thousands of rands in repair costs. Best of all, we’ll take care of the administrative and legal details so that the claims process is quick and painless – allowing you to get paid out and back on the road as soon as possible.
