Hi all, hope you can help me with this.
I previouly had a car insurance policy that expired in Jan 2005. As I no longer needed my car at that time I did not renew my insurance. However, I stupidly failed to get a proof of no claims letter in case I subsequently needed to get another car.
I called the insurance company today, and they say that they no longer have any details of my insurance cover with them, and that they will not provide me with a proof of no claims letter.
Surely they would still have details of past policy holders to help prevent against fraud, e.g. getting insurance from someone else and claiming that you have never had an insurance claim, when in fact you have.
Can I do a DPA request to find out if indeed they are holding any information about my previous policies? I do have a reminder letter/quote from them from around Jan 2005 that indicates on the back of it that I had 6 years of no claims; could I use this for my new insurance company?
Cheers in advance for any help you can give me with this.
