1. What is No Claims Discount?

We do our best to keep premiums as low as possible for foreign drivers, which is why we take into account your foreign driving experience.

No Claims Discount is the system used in the UK to reward claim-free driving. How it works is drivers earn 1 year NCD at the end of each year they drive without making a claim. No Claims Discount are often associated with a discount on your car insurance, as good drivers are considered less risky, as less likely to start driving recklessly.

4. What happens if I can't prove my No Claims Discount?

We're trying to be as flexible as possible on No Claims Discount, as we know it can be difficult to get the appropriate proof from foreign insurers. If you feel like you'd need more time to get your NCD proof, simply talk to us! Our friendly team will be happy to go through your options with you.

If you're unable to prove your NCD, we'll have no choice but to remove the discount associated, and your premium will go up. We would always let you know by email before we process any payments or premium changes.

If you then receive the appropriate proof, then we would decrease your premium accordingly!

5. What happens if I can prove more No Claims Discount years than originally quoted?

We love cautious customers, and would be happy to increase your discount if you can prove more NCD years than declared at sign up!
