Will claiming for an accident affect my No Claims Discount?
Whether your No Claims Discount will be affected depends on the circumstances of the accident. If an accident was caused by another party, and their insurer accepts full liability, then the accident won’t affect your No Claims Discount once the claim is closed and the full costs of the claim have been recovered. If the insurers settle the claim on a partial liability basis (i.e. both insurers pay part of each drivers claim), then this would result in a reduction of your No Claims Discount.
If an accident was your fault, and your insurer agrees to accept full liability, again this will reduce your No Claims Discount. If your No Claims Discount is reduced, this will occur at the next policy renewal date, and won’t result in increased premiums midterm.
No Claims Discount Protection
No Claims Discount protection allows you to make one or more claims before your number of No Claims Discount year’s is affected. This does not protect the overall price of your insurance policy as this may increase when it comes to renewal following an accident even if you weren’t at fault.
