                          Accident Exchange Group plc

            Agreement with The Cooper Group Ltd ('The Cooper Group')

Accident Exchange Group plc ('Accident Exchange'), the leading prestige vehicle
replacement company, has today signed binding Heads of Agreement with The Cooper
Group for the provision of credit hire and business support services to their
customers across their 8 BMW dealerships in Banstead, Cobham, Croydon, Reading,
Sevenoaks, Thames Ditton, Tunbridge Wells and Wimbledon.

The Cooper Group Ltd is one of the largest BMW retailers in the UK, with eight
prestigious dealerships extending from Reading, across London, and into Kent.
The agreement signed today includes the provision by Accident Exchange of
replacement BMW and Mini vehicles to The Cooper Group's customers, following
road traffic accidents.

The Heads of Agreement will run for a maximum period of three months whilst the
final contract terms and service level agreements are ratified. Accident
Exchange has purchased 42 BMW vehicles today and, on exchange of the final
contract, expects to commit to the purchase of a further 202 vehicles. It is
expected that the final agreement will be signed before expiry of the binding
Heads of Agreement.

Steve Evans, Chief Executive of Accident Exchange said:

'This is an account win with great significance and we are looking forward to
building and developing our relationship with The Cooper Group. The initial
vehicle purchase commitment of 42 vehicles will ensure that we have the capacity
to cope with the increased demand which will be generated from today.

'The Cooper Group is a nationally known supplier of BMW and Mini vehicles with a
tremendously strong geographical footprint and we are extremely pleased to have
won the opportunity to deliver our service offering to a wider customer base.

'Prior to this agreement, our rental fleet stood at 805 vehicles and we are
confident that the agreement helps underpin the current expectations for the
growth in our fleet size through to 2006.'
