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.

Whatever modified vehicle you own, you can trust Performance Direct for the best cheap modified car insurance.
Any car that has additions or alterations to its standard factory specification is what the insurance industry calls a 'non standard' or modified vehicle. Modifications may include the fitting of a new performance exhaust system alloy wheels, air filter, the fitting of body kits or any tuning procedures that enhance the performance of the vehicle.
It is imperative that you tell your insurer if your car has been modified in any way. If you don't, your modified car insurance may be invalid. If in doubt, ask.
Remember, by dealing with Performance Direct, we can guarantee that you are fully covered for the best possible price.
The desire to modify your vehicle whether to increase performance or for other reasons is becoming increasingly popular, however if you have a modified car, even a simple modification, many insurers increase their premiums as though it were a fully customised vehicle built for racing. Performance Direct understands that the desire for an upgraded version of your car is perfectly reasonable. In fact, this has been occurring all throughout automotive history. Your vehicle’s performance will not always be affected by an aesthetic modification and other modifications affect a car’s performance in different ways. We take this into consideration when providing a modified car insurance quote and do not simply issue standard policies.
Even if modifications have been made to an automobile engine Performance Direct has the experience of providing modified insurance quotes on a car by car basis. We provide the coverage required for your modified vehicle and not a general modification rate that other insurers give. So if your car is a BMW or a Nissan we have the modified car insurance quotes to suit your vehicle. We are conveniently available 7 days a week either direct or online.
We aim to provide cheap car insurance for all customised cars and driver types including young drivers.
At Performance Direct we have a history of providing quality, cheap car insurance for young drivers. This extends to the range of car insurance for modified cars that we have to offer. We source a range of insurance policies in order to provide the best quotes possible, even for young drivers who have vehicles with modifications. We are happy to discuss your specific modification or intended modification in order to find your ideal quote. Insurance for young drivers can be among the highest premiums there are, with some insurers not dealing with young drivers. This is not the case with Performance Direct. Among modified car insurers Performance Direct really does go that extra mile to give the extra care and attention that each customer deserves no matter what age.
We believe in the individuality of our customers and the uniqueness of their vehicles. This is absolutely true for modified vehicles whose personality reflects that of their owners.
