Is my No-Claims Discount affected by a non-fault claim
Your annual No-claims discount will almost certainly be lost if you make a non-fault claim on your car insurance policy.
This is because it is a ‘no-claims’ discount and not a ‘no-blame’ discount.
Your car insurance provider supplies the services to resolve the accident and that is as far as they are concerned - just another claim.
What happens when you make a non-fault claim on your car insurance
Typically this is what happens when you make a non-fault claim on your insurance: -
You will probably have to pay your insurance excess before your car is repaired
The cost of your insurance is likely to increase as a result of your claim
If your no-claims discount is not protected, you are likely to lose it
