Many families, where parents are in their 50’s have children who are reaching late teens and have just passed their driving test.
Two big expenses for them (and more often for the parents!) are the cost of buying a car and the cost of car insurance. We found a couple of years ago that the best deal on the market was from Admiral who offer a MultiCar insurance policy. So instead of insuring each car/driver separately with other insurance companies we put all 4 of our family cars on MultiCar insurance. Collectively, we found it to be a much better deal, and even after the first year of renewal, it still appears to be the most cost effective policy for our family. Another benefit is that all cars renew on the same day, so there is one batch of paperwork delivered for review annually. We each have our own no-claims bonus too.
See the details below that we have taken from Admirals website www.admiral.com. Its worth checking this out if you have more than two cars in the family.
MultiCar – as easy as 1, 2, 3 or more cars
Some insurers may offer a multi car insurance discount if you insure a second car with them. Our approach is different. Admiral’s MultiCar Insurance policy actually combines cars on one policy, with all the cars eligible for a discount. More cars mean bigger discounts.
When you get a quote, tell us about your other car(s). We’ll quote for them too. As long as there are no changes, the price we quote today will be the price you pay, when you’re ready to add the additional cars.

Mark and Beth live together in Lancaster and each has their own car, Mark has a Vauxhall Vectra Club and Beth has a Mini One Pepper. Admiral Single-Car Insurance policies came in lowest on a major price comparison site, but our MultiCar Insurance saved them even more!
