The Dealer Claims Official will verify your claim based on the presentation of your ContiSure Warranty Brochure, Original Sales Invoice and Tyre Service record. Once it is verified, your tyre will be assessed.

Can I claim in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland as well?
Do I get a ContiSure Card that I can keep on me?
No, you will receive a ContiSure Warranty Brochure to keep in your vehicle. This Brochure is very important and you must ensure that you keep it in your vehicle at all times.
