Multi-Car Insurance is a policy that can usually provide cover for up to five cars. It offers the same benefits as regular car policies, but the difference is that insurers will give you a discount for insuring multiple vehicles with them.
With the cost of car insurance consistently rising over recent years, it’s worth getting whatever discounts you can get.
More individuals are looking for creative ways to save money. Harsh economic conditions are making it increasingly difficult for individual to afford necessities. This means that people are less likely to choose to get insurance cover – regarded as a luxury by many in this country. As a result, insurance companies are working harder to retain their clients.
How does Multi-Car Insurance work?
- You start your policy with one car
- Others join the policy later when it’s due for renewal
- The more cars you add the more Multi-Car discounts you get
