I assume if it's a relatively new car, the insurance would be 'Comprehensive?'
Is it a 'Protected Policy?' - If so, that shouldn't affect your no claims, but your excess on the policy would be at risk.
Failing that, if your policy is due for renewal, upgrade it to 'protected' and look carefully at the 'voluntary' and 'inclusive' excesses might be.
Just to give you an idea, put your info into www.gocompare.com and enter some different excess values into the 'form' to see what it comes up with.
Firstly though, I would get a few quotes in, just to see what the repair cost is going to be and offset that with what it would cost you if you put an insurance claim in.
Political correctness defined:
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
