Car insurance — the features
Option to guarantee your no claim discount for the life of your policy
You’ve worked hard to build up your no claim discount which can mean up to a 60% discount on your annual car insurance premium. 10% of customers with five or more years no claim discount receive a maximum 60% saving. Discount depends on individual circumstances and does not apply to optional extras. Minimum premium applies. Now we can guarantee that you’ll never lose it. We can offer you a guaranteed protected no claim discount for the life of your motor insurance policy — regardless of the number of claims you make, we promise you won’t see any increase in your premium as a result of any claims. To opt for guaranteed no claim discount, you will need to have:
- Comprehensive car insurance with at least five years no claim discount
- No ‘at fault’ claims in the last three years
- Policyholder and all additional drivers must be aged 21 or over
- Have a minimum excess of £250 on your car insurance policy
- Guaranteed no claim discount is not available for policies with open driving.

Named drivers who remain claim free can earn a named driver discount, to use in the future, if they take out their own Aviva motor insurance policy
- The discount is available on an Aviva policy taken out by the named driver and will be converted to one year’s NCD after one year’s claim free driving.
- If you are the spouse or partner of the policyholder you could earn up to 60% discount when you insure your own car with us.
- If you are purely a named driver, for earning your no claim discount you can earn up to 40% discount when you take out your own car insurance with us.
- If you are a named driver looking to purchase your own car insurance, unfortunately we are unable to process your application online. Please call us on 0800 056 2683 (calls may be recorded and/or monitored).
- Vehicles added mid term on to an Aviva MultiCar policy will be given a year’s NCD with Aviva if there is six months or more remaining on the Aviva MultiCar policy term.
- Discount depends on individual circumstances and does not apply to optional extras. Minimum premium applies.

Child car seat replacement
- Did you know that if your car has been in an accident — even if there is no visible damage — it is possible that your child car seat could be weakened so that it will not provide the same level of protection in a further accident?
- The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) recommends that all child car seats should be replaced following an accident. That’s why we’ll provide child car seat cover as standard with our comprehensive motor insurance polices. We’ll replace your child car seat up to the value of £100 following an accident or theft — even if it looks undamaged.
Enhanced courtesy car upgrade
And that’s great if you have a family or just want that extra comfort and space. Our enhanced courtesy car option means that should you have an accident and your car requires repair work, then you will receive a 5 door car with a 1.6 litre engine with room for up to 5 people.
- To select the upgrade as part of your car insurance policy features, please click on the ‘enhanced courtesy car’ option in the ‘add on’ section of the online car insurance quote application form.
- £25 for standard courtesy car and £32 for enhanced courtesy car.
New vehicle replacement
We will replace your vehicle with a new vehicle of the same make, model and specification (if one is available in the UK) if, within 12 months of the main policyholder (primary policyholder), other main drivers (vehicle policyholders) or a partner buying your vehicle from new:
- Any repair cost or damage in respect of any one claim covered by the policy is more than 60% of the vehicle’s UK list price (including vehicle tax and VAT) when your vehicle was purchased, or
- Your vehicle is stolen and not recovered.
We will only replace your vehicle if the main policyholder (primary policyholder), other main drivers(vehicle policyholders) or a partner:
- Buy it under a hire purchase agreement or other type of agreement where ownership passes to the Main policyholder (primary policyholder), other main drivers (vehicle policyholders) or a partner and the Financing Company agrees, and
- The main policyholder (primary policyholder), other main drivers (vehicle policyholders) or a partner become the first registered keeper of your vehicle, or the second registered keeper of your vehicle where your vehicle has been pre registered in the name of the manufacturer or supplying dealer, providing at the time of purchase the mileage was less than 250 miles.
Vehicles sold as ‘ex demonstrators’ and ‘nearly new’ do not qualify for replacement under this section.
24 hour pick up and onward journey following an accident
If you are involved in an accident and your car is undriveable, we will come and pick you and your car up from the scene of the accident whatever time of the day it may be. We can arrange for your car to be dropped of at a garage/or your home and will arrange for you to be taken on to a destination of your choice — whether it be home or to your original destination if you were travelling away from home (within the UK including Northern Ireland).
When you buy a car insurance policy from us, we’ll give you access to our online self service facility, MyAviva.

Uninsured driver promise
If you’re hit by an uninsured driver and it wasn’t your fault your no claims discount won’t be lost — and you may be able to recover the cost of any excess you have had to pay. You will need to provide
- The vehicle registration and the make/model
- The driver’s details
This promise is for comprehensive car insurance policies only and applies where the driver of your car was not at fault for the accident.
There are also General Exclusions that apply to the whole of your Aviva motor insurance policy which are explained here
