    Car insurance for twin 18 year olds - any help? 12th Mar 18 at 1:33 PM
    I have insured one of my twins via Marmalade to drive my car. I assumed - wrongly - that the other one would be able to get insured and use the same black box technology through their own app (and the fact it is two different logins would show Marmalade who was driving). However, I am wrong. And now I am unable to get the other twin insured. My insurance company won't name anyone under the age of 24.
    Can anyone offer any words of wisdom please?

    Hi Catha, you've done well to get one of them insured on your policy. It's pretty much unheard of to get 2 such young drivers on the same policy even if they're not the main users of the car. Assume you don't have other vehicles?

    Have you any professional motoring association that might help? (Not that being a medic or a civil servant may help but if you don't ask, you're sure won't win.)

    Also try TAMBA (twins & multiple births assoc) as they must have others who have been in similar boats. Someone has to have a profitable niche here!

    TAMBA is an excellent thought. I haven't been in touch with them since the boys were babies (then they were a lifeline!)
    Perhaps I should be that profitable niche
    Thank you for your reply.
