If you're running more than one car, you may want to consider looking at a MultiCar insurance policy.

- List all your cars under a single policy
- Avoid handling multiple renewal dates, instead all cars listed renew on the same date
- Receive a discount for each car added to the policy.

Family motoring is changing
According to Aviva's 2012 family car report, the type of car families own and the way they use them have largely changed over the last 30 years.
Whilst 30 years ago, it wasn't uncommon for families to have more than one car, the typical first or main car would have been a large saloon such as a Vauxhall Cavalier whereas in 2012 the typical first car would be an SUV or MPV like a Ford Galaxy.
Families of 1982 would have had a smaller secondary car such as a Ford Fiesta whilst in 2012 the average family second car would be a Mini or Compact car like the Volkswagen Golf.
