No claims discount (NCB/NCD)

NCB/NCD is no claim bonus/ no claim discount that we offer you as incentive on your renewal premium if there are no claims caused by accident on your policy in the past year of insurance.

 

No. of consecutive years free of accident  

No claim discount

First year

0%

The first year after renewal

20%

The second year after renewal

30%

The third year after renewal

40%

The fourth year after renewal

50%

The fifth year after renewal or more  

60%

 

There are different calculations of no claim discount for different type of vehicle so there is no common calculation of no claim discount. For example, no claim discount for private vehicle can be accumulated up to 60% while motorcycle and commercial vehicles can only accumulated to 30% of no claim discount.

 

No claim discount is attached to the policy holder. Thus, buyer cannot utilize your no claim discount when you sell the vehicle.  Meanwhile, even though the owner of the no claim discount is the same person, the no claim discount only applies to one vehicle.  Therefore, the owner with serval vehicles will have more than one no claim discount. Also, vehicle owner should also be aware that if he/she fails to apply transfer the no claim discount to another vehicle when the vehicle was sold, then the no claim discount will be automatically cancelled after one year. Even if there was 60% no claim discount the discount still re-count from 0%.

 

2.
What is an excess?

An excess is the amount that you must contribute towards the cost of a claim. The insurance company will pay the rest of the compensation. In the normal situation, the higher the excess you contribute, the lower the premium you pay.

 

For example, if the excess for the policy holder is HK$5,000 and the total of compensation is HK$12,000, the policy holder is necessary to afford HK$5,000 whilst the HK$7,000 will be payable by the insurance company.

 

The policy will also list different excess in details as follows:

Excess Type

Comprehensive insurance

Third-party insurance

General Damage /Own Damage

 

Unnamed Driver

Young Driver

Inexperienced Driver

Theft Loss

 

Third Party Property Damage

Parking Damage

What is MIB?

MIB is the short name for Hong Kong Motor Insurance Bureau, which is responsible formanaging two funds: responsible vehicles do not have valid insurances cover or the insurance policies are invalid in a traffic accident, and victims fail to obtain compensations adjudged by the court within 28 days or the compensationsare unpaid because of the bankruptcy of the insurer.  The source of both funds is from the 3% surcharge of the auto insurance policy.

All insurance companies authorized to engage in mandatory auto insurance in Hong Kongshall become the member of Hong Kong Motor Insurance Bureau.

According to the existing law, all accidents are required to be reported to the police for recording.

 

Traffic accidents which only cause vehicle damages and no personal injury or damage to government or third party property, and both parties have parked and exchanged information and reached reconciliation agreement.  These are in accordance with the legislation requirements, thus no need to report to the police for further actions.

 

If both sides fail to reachreconciliation, or there are deaths, injuries or damagesto the government’s public property or severedamages to the vehicles, one must report to the police for help within 24 hours after the accident regardless of whether the parties have exchanged any information. And without prior authorization of police officers, both partiesinvolved or anyone else should not move or interfere with any vehicles involved in accidents. Any actionscausing destruction, changes or concealment to the evidence of the accidents are criminal acts, and can be fined for a fine of HK$10,000.00 and imprisonment of six months.

 

We recommend you to report to the police traffic accident investigation agencyimmediatelyafter the accident to protect yourself.
