Admiral is really well known for its focus on multi-car insurance deals, providing cover for several cars on one policy for a discounted price. Since 2005, Admiral has insured over 8 million vehicles with multi-car.
Admiral multi-car insurance policies offer a number of further benefits, such as replicated no claims discount (the amount of NCD from one car can be applied to subsequent cars) and general savings as further cars are added to the policy. A single policy date is applicable to all cars under multi-car cover, making it easy to keep track of renewals.
Every car in a multi-car policy gets its own discount. Cars don't have to be registered at the same address to be included in the same policy and earn a discount. So if you have friends or family that live separately from you, you could add their vehicles to your policy and they will be able to earn their own multi-car discount.
If a person insured on your policy claims or has a claim made against them only they're affected. You and none of the other policyholders won't be affected in any way, including no-claims discount. Each car gets its own no-claims discount that cannot be transferred to or affected by another policyholder.
You can get multi-car discount on your policy before insuring more than one car by letting Admiral know you will eventually be adding additional cars to your policy when getting a quote. Admiral says that you will receive your multi-car discount immediately and any other car you add to your policy in the future will earn its own multi-car discount.
