Car insurance optional extras

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, your no claims bonus would stay intact.

Important information:

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.

Legal Expenses

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.

Breakdown Cover

Breaking down during the course of a journey or the failure of your vehicle to start outside your home could result in the unexpected expense of paying for assistance. To avoid such cost and frustration, we recommend our Award Winning Breakdown Service offering varying levels of cover to suit your needs.
