Second car insurance policy

When you opt for a policy with Insure My Cars, you have the option to avail of our heavily discounted Multi Car Insurance program. This means we can offer you an insurance discount for a second car and each other car you wish to add.

The second car insurance discounts are eligible for virtually anyone in your household, whether it is your partner or spouse or any member of your family who needs a high-quality policy. This includes great rates for young drivers whose parents choose Insure My Cars.

Of course, whenever someone is considering insuring a second car, the first question that pops in mind is “Will I be able to use my No Claims discount for the second policy as well?”.
