A multi insurance car and van policy is an umbrella type of policy in which several other policies are held under it to represent the individual vehicles being protected.

How many vehicles can be covered with a multi insurance car and van policy?

The choice of add-ons is also the choice of the vehicle owner. This makes it possible for one or all of the vehicles to be covered with breakdown insurance, lost key replacement and or windscreen protection.
What type of discount is provided for having a multi van insurance policy?
The first vehicle is generally at full price with each additional added vehicle at a discount of 10% to 15% off the annual premium costs.
Will a no claims discount be affected if a claim is made on one of the vehicles?
The no claim discount is what a driver earns by making no claims. It is initially granted when no claims are made in a year. With each additional year of no claims, the discount amount should rise. There will be no effect to one driver’s discount if another driver under the multi van policy reports a claim.
What can be the renewal date for the vehicles in a multi van and car policy?
The renewal dates will be one year from the time the policy is signed. The payments can be annually or monthly. Some insurance firms will prorate a policy so all of them will have the same renewal date if the vehicle owners want it that way. They can also be different if desired. The advantage of having the same renewal date is all vehicles can be covered with just one payment.
A multi insurance car and van policy is the easiest way to cover all the vehicles that are registered at one address. This is a custom made type of policy to fit the needs of the policyholders by choosing the level of coverage and who can operate each vehicle.
