*86% of new Castle Cover customers who purchased car insurance between 1st January 2016 and 30th June 2016 would have been eligible for this discount. Smaller discounts apply if you have less than 9 years no claims. Minimum premiums apply. T&Cs apply
**You could benefit from No Claims Discount Protection providing you have held insurance for the last 4 or more years without a claim. This benefit allows you to have up to 2 claims in 3 years without affecting your No Claims Discount. No Claims Discount Protection does not protect the overall price of your insurance policy. The price of your insurance policy may increase following an accident even if you were not at fault. Other factors can also increase the price of your policy.

We’ll be here to help you, whether you take out our standard basic policy or decided to add any of our useful options:
Breakdown from just £46.99 per year whoever’s driving
Excess Protect from just £30 per year
Protect yourself from the unexpected for only £30.
A sudden excess payout can be a shock to the bank balance. Our Excess Protect cover means in the event of a claim where recovery cannot be made from a third party, up to £500 of your excess can be reimbursed. What’s more, using Excess Protect means you could choose a higher excess on your car insurance, which may reduce your overall premium – an added benefit!
Legal Expenses Cover for just £29.60 per year
Taking legal advice can be expensive. If you are involved in a legal dispute involving your vehicle, the last thing you need is the additional stress that comes from paying what could be thousands of pounds in solicitor fees or foregoing legal advice altogether and attempting to settle the matter without support. Castle Cover Legal Expenses provides up to £100,000 of cover for you, your passengers and the car in the event of an incident which was the fault of another insured identifiable person. You will have access to a range of legal services including cover for the costs of a solicitor to act for you to negotiate compensation, legal advice and support in settling the claim.
- Personal Injury cover for you and your passengers following a road traffic accident which was not your fault.
- Uninsured Loss Recovery - to pursue damages claims arising from a road traffic accident which was not your fault and recovering costs from the person at fault, such as medical treatment, travel costs incurred due to the loss of use of your car etc.
- Defence of Motoring Prosecutions – defending a criminal legal action arising from your use of your car.
- Motor Contract Disputes - pursuing or defending contract disputes relating to the sale of goods or services associated with your car, including the car itself.
- Vehicle Cloning – you will be covered for costs to defend civil or criminal proceedings, if your car’s identity is stolen.
- Motor Insurance Database Disputes – covers costs for disputes following incorrect information about you or your car being recorded on the Motor Insurance Database.
In addition to the benefits listed above, this cover also offers access to the following additional services:
- Discounted legal services for issues including routine conveyancing costs, wills and probate, divorce and child custody disputes.
- Access to an online legal document service.
Claims must be reported within 180 days and have more than a 50% chance of success in order to be accepted. Only contracts which are entered into after the policy begins will be covered in case of dispute. This will not cover any legal costs that have already been paid or you have agreed to pay before the claim is accepted.
Prospects of success
Arc Legal Assistance considers the below when forming the view as to the prospects of success of the claim:
- The amount of money at stake
- Whether a person without legal expenses insurance would wish to pursue or defend the matter
- The prospects of being able to enforce a judgement
- Whether your interests could be better achieved in another way
