    Is protected NCB worth it?

    Two possible scenarios during the policy year : 1 - You have no incidents. This is what we all hope for, even if you have not benefitted from having paid to protect your NCB. 2 - You are unlucky enough to have 1, 2 or 3 incidents which are still 'open' at the renewal date.

    Insurance

    Possible Insurance Algorithms - Fewer insurers offer Third party fire and theft insurance, so those that do so can charge higher premiums.

I will be interested to hear how...
