You build up a no claims discount by going years without claiming on your car insurance policy. No claims discounts can be very valuable, often slashing your premiums by more than 60% after five years. But how do you know if you have one?
To check if your insurer is applying a no claims discount to your policy, check your policy documents or renewal letter. Some insurers will also run online portals for customers, which should display your no claims discount.
If you can’t find your no claims discount in those places, contact your insurer by phone or email and ask about it.
