What is the Excess Return Voucher?

The Excess Return Voucher allows you to reclaim either the voucher value stated on your Excess Return Voucher or the entire value of your excess (whichever is lower). The Excess Return Voucher is available to retail customers only who have purchased a new or used Nissan (excluding Motability and Commercial vehicles), or service, MOT or repair (costing over £35) from an authorised dealer. The value of the Excess Return Voucher can vary and is subject to change.

When can I use my voucher?

You may use your Excess Return Voucher if your vehicle suffers any damage covered under your insurance policy. The Excess Return Voucher is valid for one year from its start date and can only be used once. Only one voucher can be issued per vehicle and is non-transferable. Only one voucher can be redeemed per claim.

​How to claim the Excess Return Voucher

  • The voucher must be activated before the incident occurs in order to be valid. The incident must take place between the validity dates shown on the voucher.
  • Following an accident, regardless of who you are insured with, you must call Nissan Excess Return first on the dedicated 0330 818 0499 number. If you call any other Nissan number or your insurer first, or without our instruction, the voucher will be void. Where we accept and complete the vehicle repair, we will pay up to the voucher value as cash back towards any policy excess paid by you. You will be required to pay the repairer your applicable
  • motor insurance policy excess. The repair cost must be settled by your insurer. Once the repair is completed and your insurer has settled the claim, we will refund you the voucher value stated on your Excess Return Voucher or the entire value of your excess (whichever is the lower). You will need to provide proof that you have paid your excess in order to claim on the voucher. For the avoidance of doubt Nissan shall have sole discretion to accept any vehicle for repair.
