Insuring 2 cars...

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts on insuring more than one car yet retaining some sort of no claims bonus on the bunch?

We're about to buy a Freelander as a shared family car. The initial insurance quote was around £300, but once the insurers realised my Mrs is keeping her existing car they wanted nearer £900 as they'll apply the no claims bonus to one car. There's a good chance I may well move on the Elise for a classic, in which case it's not a big deal as that would be covered by a classic policy leaving my NBC for the Landy. That's a possibility for the future but is there an easier fix here?

I just got 7 years no claims mirrored on my two cars.

I think it depends how 'good' a customer you are, as I haven't been treated so well in the past. My Evora premium is the biggest I've ever paid, so maybe they're not so bothered about giving me £50 off my Astra insurance!

How many miles a year in the Elise - if less than 5K, try a classic policy, you neither acrue or require NCB for many of these

I do about 3-4k a year right now and that will drop with the arrival of the Freeloader. The problem is my Elise is only 2 years old, isn't that a bit new for a classic? Good point though, like I say was thinking of looking at a classic, partly for the insurance but also because I won't need a car I can depend on 100% and the Elise has been amazing in that respect.

Not bad for £20 a year! You could be saving money and some some of them will insure anything, not just classics.
