    Breakdown cover for 2 cars same household? 10th Jun 17 at 8:04 AM
    Wife is now back on the road and we both drive older cars

    I am looking for recommendations on how best and cheapest way to get covered on both cars for Home Start and Recovery please?

    Thanks as usual

    Worth looking at personal cover so that you're both covered regardless of what car you're in.

    The usual comparison sites give you the various options, and tell you how much for each.

    My autoaid policy covers two cars at the same address, with the second car having a 50% discount on the premium.
    I used to think that good grammar is important, but now I know that good wine is importanter.

    Another vote for Autoaid. About £40 for insured and spouse, each driving any car.

    Car repaired or recovered to home.

    A quick search for Autoaid discount codes might help.

    RAC paid for by Tesco Clubcard points if you have enough.

    Have you thought of a (joint) Nationwide Flex Plus Bank Account. £10/month gives you excellent car cover+worldwide travel insurance + mobile phone insurance + more. I just cancelled my AA policy today for this. The breakdown/recovery is by LV/Britannia who came 2nd top in Which? magazines best buy survey.
    Nice to save.

  • You're right, of course. How silly of me. After all, all my work is solely focused on my own personal circumstance? https://t.co/m6DHzFUjzg

  • RT @ARJMOR: @MartinSLewis It may well be kind of random, but the algorithm used has a bias to the unpopular seats.
