    Changing car midway through insurance policy

    Changing car midway through insurance policy 15th Dec 09 at 12:13 PM

    I'm midway through my current year's policy and my car has given up the ghost. I've already got another one but I was wondering about how the no-claims bonus works in these situations. Can I contact my current supplier and simply switch the car on the policy to the new(er) one - or do I have to stop this one and start anew?

    How would future declarations of no-claims go? Do I count the number of years driving without a claim or (I think more likely) do I only count the years where a full year has been completed with one company? If the latter is the case though, it does seem unfair on drivers who change their cars with some regularity.
