How much is the extra cost to insure a second car?

How much does it cost to insure a second car? My husband and I are considering getting our son a car, but we don't know how much it will raise our insurance.

Answer
It’s nice you’re considering getting your son a car, but it’s always good to check prices first! The cost of insuring a second car will depend on a range of factors like your location and the type of car you add.
That said, adding a second car to your policy will typically be cheaper than separately insuring a second car. Some providers may even offer multi-car discounts up to 25%!
But you’ll always see an increase in your premium when you add a new car. From the providers’ perspectives, you’re adding another risk for them to insure. Luckily, there are still ways you can save on insurance, like:
  • Shopping around for cheaper plans.
  • Asking your provider about discounts.
  • Dropping excessive coverage.
  • Buying more affordable vehicles.
