Advice on car insurance renewal after 2 years to keep no claims bonus?

Any help or advice much appreciated.

My last car insurance policy was with esure which expired in March 2021 and I had a 7 years no claims bonus.


I have called esure and other car insurers such as Direct Line and they all said they require a renewal within in 2 years to keep my no claims bonus.


I was told that apparently there are certain “specialist policy providers” who offer a renewal within 3 years. For me it will be 3 years in March 2024, so at the moment I am still within the 3 year window.


Does anybody know who the “specialist policy providers” are?

Or any other information that could assist me to renew my policy now and keep my 7 years no claims bonus?


Again, any help with this would be much appreciated

    Admiral accept NCD up to 3 years old.

    Get quotes with 0 NCD as well though... many don't discount any where near as much as they used to with NCD and limiting yourself to only a couple of providers could mean higher prices than buying with nil. One person the other day here said it made £5 difference between have 9 years NCD or 0 years.

    NCD is a bit of a scam these days. I have over 20 years no claims, as an experiment I got a quote for my wife, same car etc but with me as a named driver (she is a named driver on my policy) She's never had car insurance in her life. Her quote was literally about £10 more than mine (same insurer).
