2 Car Breakdown Cover
We have two cars can I get Two Car Breakdown Cover?
Yes, most Breakdown Cover providers offers special rates for Twin or two car cover. This single policy should be cheaper than buying two separate ones. You can either insure the people or the cars, so in fact a couple could cover themselves to drive either of their two cars under one policy.
The most common restriction is that you must both live at the same address and the cars must be registered there.

Some providers set a maximum repair rate above which you would have to pay the balance and some of the cheapest Road side Assistance only policies simply take you to the nearest garage not back home. If you don?t take Home start be sure to check how far from home you need to be before the Roadside Assistance becomes active.

When is a Two Car Breakdown Cover Policy not suitable?
A twin, two person or two car Breakdown cover policy is probably not the best solution when the needs of the individuals are different. If one only drives locally on short trips and the other does thousands of miles per year in the UK and abroad the needs may be so diverse that it may be cheaper to buy two separate policies.
A Two Car Breakdown Policy is also not suitable if the people do not live under the same roof, even if they are family. So a student away at university cannot share a Two car policy with his/her mother living in the family home.
