Yes, if you want to keep your no claims bonus in the event of an accident, we offer step-back protection. Step back protection is where a policyholder protects part of their bonus. For example, where you’re at fault in an accident, instead of losing your full five-year bonus, you only lose two years and ‘step back’ to having three years of no claims bonus.

An excess is an amount you must pay yourself if you claim under your policy. For example, if your excess is €250 and you’re claiming for €3,000, the insurance settlement you would receive would be €2,750.

A no claim discount (NCD), also known as a no claims bonus, reduces the cost of your van insurance if you don’t make any claim.
