Everything you need to know about our

Extended Car Warranty

What is a Used Car Warranty?

If your car is over three years old, chances are your manufacturer’s warranty will have expired. A used car warranty is your safety net should something go wrong with your vehicle. It provides a form of additional insurance cover against certain faults, giving you peace of mind that you’re protected when things don’t go to plan.

An extended car warranty from Warrantywise will protect you from facing unexpected and often expensive repair bills. Our warranties are second to none, offering the best cover and service, and should something go wrong with your vehicle, we’ll take the stress out of the situation.

Do I need a Car Warranty?

Every year over 1,000,000 cars are left unprotected when their manufacturer's warranty expires. This leaves car owners exposed to high-priced repair bills often running up into the hundreds and sometimes thousands.

Modern vehicles can cost a small fortune to fix if they go wrong and with some main dealers now charging up to £200 per hour, the labour charges alone can be crippling. Your car is likely to be the 2nd largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, so why leave it without mechanical breakdown protection?

Taking out an extended warranty with Warrantywise will protect you from these costs that seem to come at the most inconvenient times. No other warranty company covers more of your vehicle and all our warranties include roadside assistance, recovery, car hire and your hotel and travel expenses as standard.

How much does a warranty cost?

The cost of your car warranty will vary depending on the make and model of the car you’re protecting. More expensive cars tend to cost more to repair, resulting in a higher warranty price. Similarly, as older cars are more likely to break down, you will notice an increase in the cost of a warranty. Another factor to consider is your mileage – the more you drive, the more your warranty is likely to cost.

Unlike many of our competitors, with a used car warranty from us, you won’t encounter a forced plan excess. We allow you a voluntary excess and your plan’s price will adjust accordingly to the excess you choose.

Should you buy a used car warranty?

Every year over 1,000,000 cars are left unprotected when their manufacturer’s warranty expires. This leaves car owners exposed to high repair bills. When you take out an extended car warranty with us, we’ll help protect you from these expensive costs.

New cars often come with a warranty supplied by the manufacturer – typically this will cover you for 3 years or 60,000 miles against defects that may cause your car to malfunction. Our Warrantywise extended car warranty is designed to offer similar protection when this manufacturer warranty expires.

Not only do we offer one of the best car warranty packages in the UK in terms of what we cover, but all our warranties also include roadside assistance, recovery, car hire, and your hotel and travel expenses as standard.

What does an extended car warranty cover?

There are literally thousands of mechanical and electrical parts which go into making a car, and as one of the UK’s leading car warranty companies, we can provide cover for any unexpected or premature failures of covered parts.

The extent of your protection will depend on the level of cover you have chosen. If your car is up to 6 years old or has travelled up to 60,000 miles, we can provide a used car warranty that covers ALL the mechanical and electrical parts of your vehicle.

If your vehicle exceeds these limits, we offer part warranty packages that provide comprehensive cover unrivalled in the marketplace. Find out more about what’s covered in our car warranty packages.

Do your Warranties Cover LPG Vehicles?

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a type of liquid gas that is used as fuel for a variety of purposes, including powering cars. With petrol and diesel prices rising, many motorists are converting their cars to run on LPG . Warrantywise cover LPG vehicles under our Warranty, the same as any other vehicle. However, we do not cover any vehicles that have been converted to LGP, only vehicles that were previously duel fuel.

What happens when the Manufacturers Warranty Expires?

When your car was new it would have been protected by a warranty supplied by the manufacturer. Typically this will cover you for 3 years or 60,000 miles after the date of manufacture against defects that may cause your car to malfunction. The manufacturer will then replace or repair the vehicle at no cost to you.

The Warrantywise extended car warranty is designed to offer similar protection which your manufacturer supplied when your car was new. In effect, you are extending your protection against mechanical or electrical breakdown and protecting your bank balance if something goes wrong with your car.

Is every Extended Car Warranty the same?

Unfortunately not. Many companies offer extended car warranties but the difference in cover between the plans available varies significantly.

Some warranty plans only cover you for a set list of items on your car, and there are over 5,000 parts in a typical car, a list of 150 covered items on a set of warranty terms and conditions doesn’t provide good value for your money! Warrantywise provide a used car warranty that covers ALL the mechanical and electrical parts of your vehicle when it’s up to 6 years old or has travelled up to 60,000 miles. If your vehicle exceeds these limits we offer listed Part warranty packages that provide comprehensive cover unrivalled in the marketplace. Want to know what’s covered?

What's Covered
Who Pays for Repairs?

Warrantywise will settle the Authorised Repair Cost as instructed by you. This can either be directly to your chosen Repairer and you will likely have nothing to pay, unless there are valid reasons why we are only paying a part of the bill.

No Weasel Words

Many warranty companies look to wiggle out of paying for your repair through nasty small print and stipulations. We have gained the trust of many high-profile tv presenters, including Quentin Willson who has designed and banned all 'Weasel Words' from the Warrantywise plan, as this is simply the fairest way.

So you won’t find words like betterment, consequential failure or breakdown that limit the cover you get.

Car Warranty Servicing: Do's and Dont's
Do's Dont's

We do need proof that the last relevant full service was performed within the last 12 months , 10,000 miles or any other service period recommended by the manufacturer

We don't require you to have full service history or any servicing at a main dealer

Need to use a VAT registered garage (those are the ones that charge you VAT).

Don't use the window cleaner, even if he used to sweep up and make the tea at Rolls Royce when he was a lad.

Do make sure you get VAT receipts showing what’s been done and what parts have been fitted.

Don't show us a page torn out of a duplicate book with the words, “full service carried out for fifty quid” we won’t be impressed!

If you use a main dealer you’re home and dry, otherwise DO make sure whoever carries out the service does so as recommended in your service book and within 30 days or 1,000 miles of the period stated.

NOTE: You must use a VAT registered garage, request detailed receipts and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations in your service book.

Stick to all of the above and you can’t go wrong! I’m sure you’ll agree we aren’t asking the earth, and it can save us both a lot of unnecessary headache.

What’s covered in Warrantywise used car warranty cover?

As one of the UK’s best car warranty providers we cover a range of expenses.

Roadside assistance and recovery

If your vehicle suffers a breakdown within the geographical limits then you can call 0844 693 1910 (anytime) and we will arrange for an engineer to attend (usually within the hour) to provide roadside assistance and/or recovery to an authorised repairer or a repairer of your choice. Your plan will pay up to the single repair limit for roadside assistance and up to £250, including VAT, per claim up to a maximum of 3 claims per year, towards recovery.

Replacement vehicle hire

If you require a replacement vehicle then you can call 0844 335 1988 (during office hours) and we will arrange or authorise car hire. Your plan will pay up to £50 a day, including VAT, up to a maximum of 10 days, towards the cost of vehicle hire whilst your own vehicle is undergoing garage repairs up to a maximum of £500 including VAT.

Overnight hotel expenses or onward travel

If you are left stranded without your vehicle, more than 50 miles away from your home, your plan will pay up to £250, including VAT, towards the overnight expense of a hotel room (less subsistence) and/or onward travel costs by railway, bus or taxi for one person.

European cover

Your plan is valid while your vehicle is outside the geographical limits, within the period of your plan, provided you accept the following: Any failure and repair must be in a country that is a current member of the European Union (EU).

How do I start a car warranty repair?

If your vehicle shows signs of a problem (such as a strange noise, lights on the dashboard, or perhaps it feels different to drive than it usually does), then you need to stop driving the car immediately and follow the Repairs Procedure.

Unless it’s an emergency, you must call us to let us know that your car needs repairing. We will then call an Approved Repairer, or you can take your car to any VAT registered garage of your choice. You must request detailed receipts, and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations in your service book. By following these simple steps, we’ll get you back out on the open road in no time.

Choose Who Repairs Your Vehicle

Many warranties won’t pay more than their network Labour rate (often as low as £28/hour) or leave you to arrange your own repairs and run the risk of a botched job.. We allow you to choose the Labour rate, from your friendly neighbourhood mechanic (providing he is VAT registered) rate right up to the local main dealer pricing, so you have all the choices you need at a price you can afford. We also operate an Approved Repairer scheme which will carry out any repairs required under the warranty and can even Service and MOT your vehicle at an over-riding discount, where importantly, we pay the garage directly.

Quentin's car warranty checklist

Quentin has created an easy to follow step-by-step checklist that will help minimise the chance of any repair claim being declined. If you’re unsure about any items in the list, please feel free to get in touch.

Double check that you have the car warranty cover and additions you need

We give you 30 days to change anything you missed when signing up for your car warranty, as long as you haven’t made a repair in the meantime.

Stop driving your vehicle the moment you think something is wrong!

If you carry on driving you can make the problem worse, and this could invalidate any repair request you make.

Your vehicle servicing is up to date, using a VAT registered garage

You make sure your car has been properly serviced, and our car warranty will look after your vehicle.

Don’t repair your vehicle without our prior authorisation

Tell us what you’re doing before you pay for any repairs to your vehicle, so we can log it. We can’t guarantee we’ll pay for the necessary repairs if you don’t let us know first.

Our Expert examiners are available to diagnose a problem

If we’re unsure about the exact nature of a part failure we may ask an expert engineer to examine your vehicle. This is a standard process and assists us in cutting out confusion.
