    Hi
    the rear window of my motor home was broken in a car park. Although the insurance policy states all widows are covered, the insurance company state that as the window is plastic it is not covered so instead of paying 75.00 for window excess they want me to pay 250.00 excess which would affect my no claims bonus affect has anyone had a similar problem or any advice

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, that is correct. You have windscreen cover which carries the £75 excess but any other claims are subject to the policy excess which in your case is obviously £250. Unfortunately that will affect your no claims bonus so in the long run it might be better to pick up the tab yourself. I presume that you do not have Protected NCB?

    Might be better at renewal to talk to Comfort Insurance, their premiums are net and not subject to NCB.
