Yes. I just took out another policy wiht the same company. When I sold
the first car they said " no, you can't transfer the old car's NCD to
the new car without taking out a fresh policy". As that would probably
entail cancellation fees etc that would nullify any NCD, and I was
shortly to go on holiday, I decided "sod it" and left it.
I guess I could try to talk them round, but I'm no good at blagging
stuff off droids. Depending on how competitive they are next year, I
might make the effort to move elsewhere, but they do hve the advantage
of picking up the phone quite quickly.
I've got three motor insurance policies on the go at the moment: one
car, two bike, because of the difficulty of insuring the Energica as
well as the 10R - which has loads of bling attached - on the same
policy. It's probably cost me a couple of hundred quid extra per year
