Protected No Claims Bonus
A way to safeguard your no claims discount is to pay an additional amount on top of your car insurance to protect it. This means that even if you were to make a claim, yours no claims bonus would stay intact.
No claims discount protection does not protect the overall price of your insurance policy. The price of your insurance policy may increase following an accident even if you were not at fault.
No claims discount protection allows you to make one or more claims before your number of no claims bonus years falls. Please see the step-back procedure for details.
If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver is identifiable and is also at fault, our Motor Legal Expense policy will give you a stress-free service to recover your uninsured losses. This service will give full management of your claim from start to finish together with legal advice available 24 hours a day.

Originally designed by Sir Alec Issigonis for the British Motor Corporation (BMC) the MINI has been in action since 1959, some even considering it to be a true British icon of the 1960s.
In the 1960s, Mini created two sporty versions of their iconic car, MINI Cooper and Cooper S, with both becoming successful rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally a grand total of three times.
Marketed under the Austin and Morris names, the Austin Seven was renamed as the Austin MINI in 1962 and the Morris MINI-Minor became known as the MINI in 1969. The car was made even more popular in the 1960s by such UK style icons as The Beatles, Twiggy and, of course, in the classic movie, ‘The Italian Job’.
BMW acquired the Rover Group (formerly British Leyland) in 1994 and has been using the MINI name to produce and build the British classic ever since.
Various modern editions of MINI have been produced including the likes of the MINI Countryman, MINI Cooper and the MINI Cooper S, however, classic MINIs, vintage MINIs and Austin MINIs are still extremely popular models and are in some cases a rarity.
In these situations, custom made car insurance policies are often needed as it is vital to attain the correct level of insurance for your MINI, protecting it on the road whilst restoring its historic iconography.
Ensuring you have the right car insurance is important, especially one that is specifically tailored to you. Here at Performance Direct, an operator will guide you through the various comprehensive MINI car insurance and classic car insurance options over the phone or if you prefer, a quick quote for motor insurance cover can be obtained online.
