You can get a multi-car discount for car insurance by having more than one vehicle insured with the same insurance company. All of the 10 largest insurance companies offer a multi-car discount, and qualifications are typically the same between insurers. Exact discount amounts may vary by company and state, however. For example, Geico's multi-car discount can help you save up to 25% on your premium.
Geico’s multi-car discount of up to 25% on each car’s premium is automatically applied when a customer insures two or more vehicles on the same Geico policy. The multi-car discount does not compound, though, meaning you won’t get a bigger discount just for adding more vehicles. But Geico does consider motorcycles, RVs, and boats to be secondary vehicles that qualify for the discount, too. That means you could get the multi-car discount for insuring a car and a boat, but not for two boats.… read full answer
Will the multi-car discount from Geico save me money?
Yes and no. The discount for multiple vehicles makes the policy less expensive than it would be if you insured both cars individually. But it’s pretty much always going to be more expensive to insure two cars than one.
People are sometimes frustrated when they downsize from two cars to one and only see their premium go down a small amount, but that’s because the multi-car discount goes away, too. The rate for the single remaining vehicle could be as much as 25% higher without it.
What is Geico’s multi-line discount?
The Geico multi-line (or multi-policy) discount is for customers bundling auto insurance with another type of policy, like renters, homeowners, condo, or mobile home insurance coverage. The multi-car discount is different since it’s for multiple vehicles on the same auto policy.
But the multi-policy discount could also help you save, and many households will be able to save because of both discounts. For example, you could combine home and auto coverage to get the multi-line discount and insure two cars for the multi-car discount.
Overall, both the multi-car and multi-line discounts make it financially beneficial to meet all your insurance needs through one company.
The State Farm multi-car discount is up to 20% off the auto insurance policy. State Farm’s multi-car discount is available to customers who live in a home in which two or more vehicles, owned by related or married individuals, are insured with State Farm. Like all of State Farm’s discounts, the amount of the multi-car discount may vary depending on where you live.… read full answer
Progressive offers a multi-car discount of up to 12% for customers who insure more than one car on the same policy. The Progressive multi-car discount is applied to the cost of coverage for each vehicle, but it doesn’t compound. That means each car will get a maximum of 12% off—you won’t get a discount greater than that for insuring more cars with Progressive.… read full answer
In order to add a vehicle to your Progressive policy, the car must be registered in your name or primarily kept at your home address. In addition to Progressive’s multi-car discount, the company offers a variety of other savings opportunities, like multi-policy, safe-driver and paid-in-full discounts, among others. Some discounts may not be available to customers in all states, though, so it’s important to speak to a representative about the savings you qualify for by calling 1-800-776-4737.
