How Does the No Claims Bonus Work?
A No Claims Bonus (NCB) or No Claims Discount (NCD) is a discount that you may receive on your car insurance premium for each consecutive full year that you have not made a claim, starting from one year. The scale varies between insurers, but if you've had no claims in five or more years, you're likely to get a significant discount on your premium.
If you purchase this optional extra cover for an additional premium, it'll prevent you from losing all or some of your No Claims Bonus if you have to make a claim. You can choose to buy either full No Claims Bonus Protection or Step-Back Bonus Protection. (2)
Additional drivers could also gain driving experience on your policy as a named driver. The named driver may be awarded with a discount for each consecutive year's claims-free driving, should they wish to take out a policy in their own name (3).
2) It is not necessary to purchase this optional extra in order to purchase a car Insurance policy.
3) Acceptance of Named Driving Experience and Named Driving Experience discount differs from insurer to insurer. Terms and conditions apply.
How Does the No Claims Bonus Protection Work? This will allow you to make two unlimited claims within a three year period on your car insurance policy without losing your No Claims Bonus. The number of claims free years you hold will determine if you are eligible to purchase this optional extra with each of our car insurance underwriters.
This is a partial protection of your No Claims Bonus. In the event of a claim, your No Claims Bonus will step-back by a certain percentage, this amount will depend on your car insurance underwriter. The number of claims free years you hold will determine if you are eligible to purchase this optional extra with each of our car insurance underwriters.
We value your feedback
When my renewal came up , it had jumped over €100. This I found startling, as my car had done less than 6,000km due to the pandemic. An Post Insurance was like a shining light, fast and friendly and very competitive with one other insurer. The navigation of the website made An Post Insurance the easier choice. - Sonya 14.01.2021
