NCD stand for Non-claim-discount ,which means a discount awarded to a vehicle insurance who never made any claim.It count by within the past 12 months coverage before renew.
For the 1st year of purchasing insurance,there is no discount.Started from the 2nd year,if there’s non claim within the past 12 month coverage,a first discount will be given.
Nope.The non-claim-discount can be categorized into 2 category,which are:
The maximum discount for personal use vehicle is up to the 6th year which is 55%.Therefore,in the 7th,8th or the following year,they can only enjoy up to 55% discount in the future.It doesn’t matter the vehicle owner never make any claim.
Nevertheless,once the owner make a claim, the NCD discount accumulated will burnt to zero,and recounting.First 25% discount given on the second renewal if there’s non claim in the new 12 months of coverage, and so on.
In the same way,rules for commercial vehicle are just same as above.In short, the only difference are the discount rate.
(Please refer to the picture above for rate of different kind vehicle NCD.)
In some accident case,the wrong party will be requested to claim their insurance by opponent’s for car repair.Therefore,they can repair their car without paid by themselves,or affected their own car NCD .In fact,they are no fault in that case.Otherwise some of them “settle”by themselves without go legal process.
