The deductible is the amount of money you pay toward the damage of your vehicle before your policy starts to pay. Your deductible amount can be found on the declaration page of your insurance policy. For example, you have a policy for collision damage with $500 deductible. After an appraisal of your vehicle is complete it is determined that it will cost $2,500 to repair your car. You will pay the repair facility the first $500, and Windhaven will pay the remaining $2,000.
If you have Rental Reimbursement on your policy, rental is paid on a reimbursement basis. When you turn in your rental car just submit your invoice for immediate reimbursement of your rental expenses. (Note: reimbursement will not include the cost of additional insurance. Subject to the terms and conditions of the endorsement. And subject to applicable policy limits)
If there is additional damage simply have the repair facility call our supplement hotline at 1-800-919-9114 ext. 4938 or email us at email@example.com
Yes. Advise your adjuster and we will get Direction to Pay form from the repair shop, authorizing us to pay the repair shop directly. Windhaven Insurance also offers a Direct Repair Program where we have an established network with high quality repair facilities which will expedite the claims process while paying the claim directly to the repair shop.
Florida and Texas law requires that the lien-holder be included on any payment over $2500 on the check. With regards to first party claims, the lien holder has to be included on the check regardless of the amount.
Policy limits vary due to our vast program selections and options. A written request may be required for disclosure of the policy coverage limits in accordance to Florida & Texas Statutes.
