You can earn multiple NCB’s if you have more than one insurance policy in your name. However you can only use one NCB on one policy at a time.
Call our customer service team on 01527 390 274 and they will be able to process any changes for you. Any changes we make can alter the way an insurance company calculates your premium. Some changes will increase the premium and some will reduce the premium. The charge or refund is calculated on the number of days left on the policy. Please bear in mind that, as your broker, we do make a charge for administering your policy and we may also keep our commission on any refunds. You can view our charges in our terms and conditions which can be accessed here.
