How can you prove your claim-free years?
The proof of claim-free years can be done in different ways:
1. Roy-data system
When you have taken out a car insurance policy after 1 September 2007, you will find all your accumulated claim-free years in the Roy Data system. This system is a central database in which all insurers in the Netherlands keep their claims data. When you take out a new car insurance, the insurer will check your data in this system.

2. Cancellation declaration
Your insurer will send you a statement after you have cancelled your car insurance. This statement states how many claim-free years you have built up during the term of your insurance policy. The claim-free years are also placed in the Roy-Data database, where an insurer can find your claim-free years in case of a new application.
The claim-free years remain here unused for 3 years, then they expire.
3. Lease statement
If you have used a lease car, the lease company can provide a lease statement . This statement explains any damage to your lease car. Most insurance companies accept the lease statement, because lease companies generally register damages well.
4. Employer's declaration
Insurers do not always approve an employer's statement. It is important that you were the only driver of the car. Ask your employer for a statement from the insurer of the car. Your new insurer is allowed to decide whether he approves the employer's statement.
Claim-free years transferable since 1-1-2022
