Hi.....We used directline....we asked them first if they would accept it and they said yes but it had to be written in english, which my insurance company did, paid the premium and then a month later they said they wanted the rest as they did not recognise the no clams as it was from France! We fought it though and they gave in.....so if they agree, get it in writting and fight them if they disagree afterwards!
thank you greenclogs. I have rung directline and they told me no.
I am hoping someone else may have another company in mind. There is a company called Adria Flux who advertise that they accept european no claims but I have not bee in touch with yet. Perhaps some of the readers on here may have some experience of them.
Thanks again and all the best to you
Hello...The only company i could find , with the help of Swinton Insurance brokers , was provident insurance , and they would only allow me 5 years of my 16 years N C B .
All the insurance companies asked for the number of years N C B and wanted a translation of the French paperwork , but as i explained , this would serve nothing as nowhere does it state the number of YEARS N C B , just the percentage (in my case 50% plus bon conducteur of 10% ) , so finally and on the advice of Swinton , i accepted a N C discount on 5 years ( better than nothing but not what i wanted ! )
Anyone know a better solution without falsifying paperwork please lets me know .
Swinton Insurance even told me that my French insurer MMA, was part of their group of companies , but made no difference !!
Hi, have a look at www.italsure.co.uk. Our son uses this company for his car insurance and we also have just ask for a quote for our cars here in France and its cheaper !!
If you insure withthem in France, policy docs are more comprehensive and in both languages.
Hope it helps, now we are all in EU we are not obliged to use a company in France so its good to shop around.
Interestingly Directline UK excepted our no claims from Spain from its sister group, so it looks like they have changed their rules !
