What’s the difference between a no claims bonus and a no claims discount?

A no claims bonus refers to the number of claim-free years you’ve had on your insurance policy. It can only be used on one vehicle at a time.

A no claims discount refers to the cash discount you’re given because you haven’t made a claim. The amount is deducted from your annual premium and can make your insurance significantly cheaper. Just be aware that if you make a claim on your car insurance, your premium could rise at renewal time.

You may be able to ‘mirror’ your no claims discount on a second motorbike, but this is up to your insurance provider.
