How long without car insurance before you loose your no claims bonus.

Just wondering when and if you loose your no claims bonus.

I have my van off road with no insurance since last August.Just wondered if there was a time limit for being able to use your no claims bonus.

Just had a quick Google and it came up with this.

If you are not currently insured, any No Claims Bonus earned under your last policy can usually be transferred, providing it expired within the last 2 years. The period of grace allowed may differ depending on insurer and policy type. Some insurers allow No Claims Bonus that is up to 3 years old with others it becomes invalid after 12 months. Some will decline to accept bonus altogether where there has been a break in cover.

Anyone any experience of claiming your no claims bonus or been turned down recently because it has expired.

looks like you were correct the price I quoted was the highest price charged that day.

And of course I worked it out at 5 litre's to a gallon and by your calculations it is only 4.52.

Mind you it is still to expensive and I can only see it getting worse.

Now that we have changed the subject to fuel prices, perhaps we should emigrate, buy a large 4x4 fuel guzzler, where its cheaper to get drunk on petrol or diesel than water :O)

Filled up yesterday in my neck of the woods, petrol at £1.317 litre.

With regards to the 'free' bus pass, most council's are now complaining that the government are not providing enough funds, and the council's are having to provide extra. Not sure if its the end of this year, or the next two years, but a review on 'free' bus passes are due, and it might not be favourable!.

Not that long ago you could get a gallon for that and we were still moaning about the price.

The price has came a long way since 1960 when a gallon of petrol was the equivalent of 25p in today's money.

Wonder if we will see another fuel strike in the near future.
