My car's window was smashed - will I lose my NCB if I claim on the insurance?

I know I can have a windscreen repair done on insurance without affecting my no claims bonus, but what about side windows? My car's window was smashed by a burglar, is it worth claiming on the insurance or do I lose my no claims bonus?

That will be covered by glass cover, along with any associated scratches as a result of the glass breaking. It is not categorised as a claim and will not affect your no claims bonus.
