Is it worth protecting your no claims discount?

Building up a healthy no claims discount (NCD) is a tried and trusted, not to mention effective, way to cut the cost of your car insurance. As a more experienced driver, there’s a good chance you’ll have built up a good few years’ worth of discount.

The trouble is, just one claim could see your entitlement drastically reduced and your annual premium dramatically increased. It could be worth safeguarding your discount with no claims discount protection – it costs an average of £23 to protect a five year NCD, while making a claim can put your premium up by 30%, according to MoneySuperMarket research.

Visit our car insurance channel today and run a price comparison to see if you can reduce the cost of your car insurance premium.
