Budget now offer mirrored No Claims Discount to van insurance customers, which offers experienced drivers lower premiums.

If you have built up No Claims Discount on another vehicle that is not the van you are insuring e.g. your family car - either as the main policyholder or a named driver - then you may be able to apply that discount to your van insurance with Budget.

There are certain terms and conditions you must adhere to in order to apply your mirrored NCD, so be sure to check you are eligible before signing up.
