- Multi-car insurance
the way the quote puts it, the discount is put on each subsequent car cover and so you arent really locked in, as you dont get the benefit until you pay for the cover on expiry of your existing cover. So my quote says pay X now for the new car, Y in August when your second car is up for renewal and Z in November on the last one.
Im guessing I can just choose not to buy the next two policies when I get there if I get a better quote.
I will ask get a copy of the terms sent anyway.Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
your campers registered as a camper then ?
it seems i need “multi commercial social domestic and pleasure” as only one of my vehicle falls under car 🙁 – i looked recently at multicar as my policy is due but then at 500 quid for the 3 individual policys i mustnt grumble too much.
if only there was a significant discount for incar cameras – id fit them in a heart beat – i have a roadhawk on my helmet on the bike and A i ride more conservitivly due to not wanting to provide evidence i was in the wrong and B i then have coverage incase of pikeys/hit and run/ crashes where they try to blame me.Posted 4 years ago
About to end up with 3 vehicles in the stoner household, one of which is a camper van that will be in storage for much of the year.
Have looked at Admiral car insurance and amazingly their policy for 3 (£510) cars comes in at less than what I’m currently paying for 2 (£650)
I cant seem to find any other 3x car discount insurers, are admiral the only one? Any one got any other recommendations? Just want to double check the price before pressing go.Posted 4 years agoalibongo001Subscriber
I have Admiral and have found them OK, although no claims yet.
They were significantly cheaper than insuring separately as our x5 went up to about £1100 on its own one year. Managed to get my Scirocco and a 911 all done for less than £2000.
Each year it seems to go up, but a few challenging questions seem to shave a couple of 100’s off!Posted 4 years ago
I have one car with the AA, so went to them for a quote for the new one, good price, £135 3rdPF&T.
Thought Id check the quote with a few others, directline at £160. Phoned the ol’ farmer’s friend: NFU Mutual. Spent 20 minutes on the phone going through the quotation process (no online quote. oohharrrrrrwurzel) – to be given a quote of £920! (NOT a typo!)
I said she must have got something very wrong, it’s a 25 yr old landrover, not a Veyron, but no, that was the quote. What a waste of everyone’s time!
ANyway, went with the AA in the end.Posted 4 years agoGJPMember
I am with Aviva and paying less for two cars than I did for one, not sure why it worked out this way but not complaining. Been with them for a few years and always had full protected NCD, so why adding a car reduces my premiums is beyond me.
Not sure where they stand on 3 cars.Posted 4 years agoredthunderMember
Admiral = rubbish.
Don’t ignore the renewal letters! thinking they’ll just cancel because you not repaid.
Just got dry bummed for £22 because I failed to tell them I wanted to cancel.
I HATE THE AUTO RENEWAL BUSINESS… COMPLETE CHARLATANS.
I went with RSA Echoice in the end and at a fraction of the cost. And they ask if you want to auto renew or not.Posted 4 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
Just insured my car with More Than. The Wife’s car is due next month. They offered a 20% discount on the 2nd car when it’s due. The renewal from Hastings was £295. More Than was £155. Surprisingly Hastings managed to get the quote down to £167 when I phoned up to tell them I wouldn’t be renewing.
Tried Admiral a few years ago when they introduced the multi-car thing. We were paying about £350 for both cars at the time. Admiral wanted about £650. Errrr…… No thanks.Posted 4 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
The phone call to Hastings was to tell them to not to renew, it would have auto-renewed without informing them. I’d already decided to go with More Than. They asked if they could try to match the lower quote. If they had quoted their lower price in the first place……….Posted 4 years ago
