What is multi car insurance?
If you have more than one car in your household, you can insure them all on one multi car policy. Every car you add earns its own discount, plus each car gets its own No Claims Bonus for every year it remains claim free. When it’s time to renew, you’ll have just one date to remember.
Are multi car policies cheaper?
Not only will Admiral MultiCar save you time and paperwork if you insure more than one car, it can also save you money - £337 actually.
Although individual policies could be cheaper, with Admiral you get our MultiCar discounts for every car on cover.
And 10% of customers who gave us a best alternative quote between Jul 2018 – Dec 2018 saved £337 with Admiral MultiCar!
How does multi car discount work?
Insure multiple cars on one policy and get an Admiral MultiCar discount for every car you add. You’ll get an immediate discount when the policy starts and every car you add earns its own discount. Add your friends and family to the policy to earn more discounts.
The cheapest multi car insurance on the market might not be the best option for you so take the time to read the features and benefits included in the policies you’re looking at.
It’s important you have the right level of cover for every vehicle, so you’re not left short should you ever need to make a claim.
If you’re comparing multiple car insurance quotes, be sure to come to Admiral directly as our MultiCar Insurance isn't on comparison websites and we believe it’s the best there is.

Our customers love us
Look at what they're saying...
Financially well worth it. Good follow up from their customer dept. I really appreciate their others offers for eg recovery deal and the time spent to explain to us the benefit of having MultiCar.
Low prices comparing with others and excellent customer service.
The staff who dealt with me were knowledgeable, polite and at times humorous. This may not seem important to a lot of companies but to me they are at the forefront of the company and the most important part of the sale. Admiral staff passed with flying colours.

Your questions answered
We're sure you'll love our great discounts, but maybe you have a few questions. You can find answers in this section.
Will I be able to drive all the cars on the policy?
You must be named as a driver under section 5 of the car's Certificate of Motor Insurance, to be able to drive it.
How many years am I tied into a policy?
The policy lasts 12 months; you then have the option to renew at the end of the year as normal. If you add another vehicle mid-term they will be insured up to the original renewal date on a pro-rata basis.
Is MultiCar Insurance for me?
If you have multiple private cars including camper vans or a classic car (not company or commercial), then it could save you money. Read our guide to find out more about multi car.
Will my No Claims Bonus be affected if a claim is made?
If a policyholder covered by your policy makes a claim or a claim is made against them, only they are affected. The No Claims Bonus of any other policyholders covered by the same policy won't be affected.
Do the cars need to be at the same address?
No, if you are immediate family then you can live at different addresses. So, if your son or daughter has left home you can still get the benefit of a discount.
Who can drive my car?
Only the people listed under section 5 of the current Certificate of Motor Insurance for a particular car can drive that car. If you want to add drivers to one of the cars, either for a few days or for the rest of your policy term, call our Customer Service Department. The drivers must be eligible for insurance with Admiral. There is a charge for adding drivers to your policy, which we'll tell you when you call.
If all the renewal dates are the same, won't I get a big bill?
You get discounts on each car you insure and you can spread the cost by paying for your insurance over 12 months.
If my son crashes will it affect my NCB?
If your son, daughter, wife, husband or any other policyholder on your cover makes a claim, or a claim is made against them, while they're driving their own car it won't affect any of the other policyholders' No Claims Bonus. However, if they have an accident in your car (which you are policyholder for) then your No Claims Bonus will be affected, but not for the other cars.
What if I already insure with Admiral?
If you currently have your car insured with Admiral but would like to get a quote for a MultiCar policy that's fine. Call our sales team and they'll guide you through the quote.
You won't have to cancel your existing policy as you'll receive your discount on your new car straight away.
All cars on the policy will renew on the same date.
If I buy a MultiCar policy will I have to cancel my other insurance policy for the second car?
No you won't need to cancel insurance for the other cars until it's up for renewal - they simply join our policy when it's time for renewal. When they're ready to come onto your policy they'll earn their own discounts.
Won't it be difficult to change my car?
Not at all. You can change cars any time you like during the term of the insurance policy. (Admin fee applies).
Do I have to be married to get MultiCar Insurance?
No, you can cover all the cars registered at one address no matter who they belong to, as there will be multiple policyholders. For immediate family members they can still be covered under your policy, even if they live at different addresses.
Can I use my no claims discount on two cars?
No Claims Bonus (NCB) or No Claims Discount applies to a single car so can’t be applied to another car on your multi car policy; each car on the policy earns its own NCB. If you sell a car, you can transfer its NCB over.
Can the cars have different levels of cover and excess?
Yes - on a two car policy, for example, one car can have Comprehensive cover while the other can have Third Party, Fire and Theft. The excess can differ based on various criteria such as age of drivers and type of car.
Can I add a van to my MultiCar policy?
You can only add cars to a MultiCar policy.
Do I need a green card to drive in the EU?
You don’t currently need a green card if you’re driving in:
- Countries in the European Union (EU)
- Countries in the European Economic Area (EEA)
In the event of a no-deal Brexit, after 29 March you’ll still be able to drive in countries in the EU, but you’ll need a green card to do so.
We’ll be able to provide our customers with a green card at no extra cost should you need one after Brexit. Although it should only take around a week for us to produce your green card and for you to receive it through the post, as with any travel documents it’s a good idea to give enough notice.
For journeys made between now and the end of March, you won’t need a green card – as long as you’re back in the UK before 29 March 2019.
Please contact us if:
- You’re leaving for Europe soon and are likely to be driving your car there past 29 March 2019
- You’re going to be taking your car to Europe after 29 March 2019
When you get your quote, tell us about any cars you'd like to join at a later time, regardless of their renewal date, and we'll calculate your discounts now.
You don't need to cancel insurance for your other cars, they join the policy when ready. Cars don't even need to live at the same address, if they belong to immediate family members they join too.
You can add different types of vehicles including camper vans and classic cars. Each car earns its own discount and No Claims Bonus.
