Car Insurance - Accidents / Convictions

Car Insurance Quotes - history of accidents or convictions

Have accidents or convictions and need car insurance?

Finding a competitive insurance quote when you have an unfortunate history of car accidents, insurance claims or motoring convictions is rarely straightforward. A simple shunt can lead to a lost no claims bonus or discount (NCD), something which has taken you years to build up. With the growing number of speed cameras, over 3 million motorists now have at least one speeding conviction. QuoteRack offers you the chance to receive quotes from specialist insurance brokers who know which insurance companies will offer the best terms for you if you have a poor accident or conviction driving history.

"I was unlucky enough to get a couple of speeding endorsements - my existing insurance company told me it would lead to an increase in my insurance premium, so I used QuoteRack to shop around for a cheaper quote."

It is sometimes not appreciated that you have earned a no-claims bonus, rather than a no-blame bonus. Once you make a claim following an accident, theft or even vandalism of your car, you run the risk of not only losing your NCD but also having to spend another couple of claim-free years building it back up to what it once was. At that point, you may consider taking advantage of a protected no claims discount.

Some insurance companies specialise in offering quotes for people who have an unfortunate driving record. Getting an insurance quote if you have an unfortunate driving record is very straightforward - you are in the right place.

Speeding offences are one thing, but some driving convictions, such as a DR10 drink-drive conviction or an IN10 'Driving with no insurance' conviction are particularly difficult to place. But QuoteRack brokers will help you compare quotes from insurers who specialise in this type of accidents / convictions car insurance.
