Agree with Davesss here, It is not vital the water pump is done and they are not prone to leakage but the pump could become noisy at a later date, also good opportunity to get the cooling system flushed and topped up with good fresh anti freeze. I would get it done it is very little extra cost for peace of mind.
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.
Get it priced up with a pump change etc and compare the difference.
£150 seems a good price are they supplying a quality belt ?
