Yes, if you have our Comprehensive policy you’re covered for damage to your windscreen. You can also purchase Glass excess buy-out which means you won’t have to pay an excess if you make a claim for accidental damage to your windscreen, windows or sun-roof.
With our Third Party Fire & Theft insurance you also have the option of adding Glass breakage cover to your policy, which provides cover for accidental damage to your windscreen, windows and sun-roof and you won’t have to pay an excess.
If you purchase Glass excess buy-out or Glass breakage cover you won’t lose your No Claims Bonus should you make a claim.
No you don’t, but with our Comprehensive Car Insurance policy drivers under the age of 25 are not covered unless the optional Under 25 Driver cover is purchased and you’ll need to list them on your policy. If you have a Third Party Fire and Theft, or Third Party policy, you should also name any regular drivers who are under 25, as this will affect your excess.
Otherwise, anyone is covered as long as they have your permission to drive your vehicle, their liability isn't covered by any other insurance policy and they meet the same terms and conditions of the policy that you do.

FreeBmax is a free benefit that allows you up to two claims in any 12 month period - where we've covered the cost of those claims - without your No Claims Bonus being affected.
It's available to all customers with Comprehensive, Third Party Fire and Theft and Third Party cover, and costs nothing. All you have to do to earn it is stay claim-free (i.e. we are not required to cover the cost of a claim) for 12 months on our highest No Claims Bonus of 60%.
FreeBmax stays active for the term of your policy, and is cancelled only if you make three NCB-reducing claims in any 12 month period. A NCB-reducing claim is a claim where we've covered the costs to your car and/or the third parties car if one was involved.
If you use your vehicle primarily for business purposes, you may need to consider business vehicle insurance. Find out more about our Business vehicle cover.
