    A protected claims insurance question...

    Been with my current insurer for 5 months and have a 6 years no claims discount. Paying around £600 per year. I thought I had ticked the option to protect my claims but it turns out I havent. And I cant add that option on now so far into the policy. To cancel the current policy costs £50. Should...

    Claim(s) to "Fame".

    Following on from Ant's thread, I wondered if anyone had any claims to fame - even if the celeb is not mentioned. First: From a hot sunny, but very muddy F1 GP at Silverstone in March 2000, I once pushed my friend's 320 out of a muddy field and got covered in mud as the rear wheels span...

    W164 M Class claims bonnet is open??

    fixed for now with some WD40 but has happened a couple of times. I either need a new sensor or ideally just pull out a fuse so this message never appears. Not being insane I don't drive with the bonnet open! Anyone happen to know the answer? Cheers, Mike

    No Claims

    Here we go, now playing No Claims Discount/Bonus with my new insurer, I've not had an accident for 30 years and I don't know where my "Proof of NCD" is or how I find it, the insurance companies share information but when they want to rip you off they have a very short memory.......

    Glass cover claims

    I got a big crack from a stone, whilst driving on M1 last week and was thinking of getting windscreen changed. I've never had one replaced before in 25 years driving. I might sound a bit naive, but when you make a claim for windscreen replacement, does that affect your claim history? Does it...

    Pot hole damage- Are claims worth the effort?

    As SWMBO was away last night I arranged to meet with friends for supper at a local pub about 8 miles away from home. The route involves some rather narrow lanes that are single track with passing places, fairly typical around here. One such section has a long sweeping left hand bend, as I...

    No claims bonus

    Trying to insure my new (to me) car in addition to my E36. It seems that my NCD can only be applied to one car at at a time which means my premium for the new car is an astronomical £850! due to zero NCD. I hate insurance companies! Anyone got any recommendations / ideas / ruses please?
