Renault recommend that the accessory belt is renewed if it is removed for any reason, it needs to be removed for the cam belt change.
The water pump is only accessible with the cam belt removed so it will only cost the price of the pump and a little extra labour to fit a new one, if your water pump packed up later it would cost the same amount to renew as you have just paid for the cam belt change as both belts would have to be renewed aswell.
A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
