    Windscreen Claim - 1st Year

    Windscreen Claim - 1st Year 10th Jul 17 at 7:47 AM
    Hi everyone,

    A bit of background: I'm 25, been driving for just under a year and I've recently gained a crack on my windscreen, about 4 inches long on the edge of the driver's side. My insurance for this year was about £800 (Bell) with 3 other people (fully comp) on it.

    On my policy, it'd be a £75 charge to replace the windscreen with no other excess. Having looked on a few windscreen replacement/repair sites it'd cost me £282 to do it through my own means rather than insurance.

    My main question is this - if I make a claim, is this going to increase my renewal quote next month? If so, will it be by a lot?

    Does anyone have any advice?
