Yes, could have used the first repairer they sent me to, but as you said there would have been extra 200 excess which defeats the purpose of using the voucher.
That is exactly the purpose of the voucher, to cover the excess you have to pay when you use the Volvo-approved repairer they direct you to, instead of using your insurance company's approved repairer.

This is not true.

Many dealers do not have a Volvo approved bodyshop. They will usually point you towards one but they do not own one.

For example if you are a customer of what was Bristol Street Volvo in Sheffield or Riverside in Doncaster then neither has a Volvo bodyshop. They will point you towards Burrows Toyota in Doncaster which is the Volvo approved bodyshop in the area.

Echo what Philip said, they just have to have access to one. But, TBH Volvo approved doesn't mean squat in terms of "quality" - NCR in Newbury are Volvo approved, but are the biggest cowboy outfit I've ever had the displeasure of using....panels not fitting correctly, hair in paint, you name it.

Big bodyshops tend to conveyor belt them in, quality control is lacking - small bodyshops take care but not always; try to find something in between and even better, some reviews.
