Do you live in a multi car household? You're not alone. One in three households now own two or more cars.
Whether you're a couple with a car each, you live in a shared house with friends or your grown up children still live at home and run their own cars, you're part of a trend that's seen a growth in households with two or more cars.
And this trend has caught the imagination of car insurance companies (like us) who offer discounted multi car insurance for households with more than one car.
Insurance for all vehicles included on the policy will renew on the same day. This takes away the stress of trying to remember which car needs to be renewed and when.
If insurance cover is already in place for all the cars in your household, but the cars renew on different dates, you may be wondering how they all come together on one policy with one renewal date.
Well, the good news is that you won't need to cancel any policies in order to take out multi car insurance.
At LV= you can start a multi car insurance policy with one car and add other cars from your household as they come up for renewal.
So, for example. Ann's car is due for renewal now. She's decided the most cost-effective way to get everyone insured is with a multi car insurance policy.
Ann fills in an online form with the details of the four cars and drivers who will eventually be on the insurance policy. This includes her, Steven, Megan and Holly. Each of their cars has a different excess level, no claim discount and insurance extras.
When the other cars come up for renewal, they are automatically added to the insurance policy. Steven's car comes up for renewal three months after Ann's, and Megan's and Holly's cars two months after that. So Steven, Megan and Holly are only charged for the months they are included on the policy until Ann's next renewal date. On this date all the cars and drivers are included in the renewal.
Ann gets her multi car discount from the date she takes out the insurance and the others get their discount when they join the policy.
