If you own a motorcycle and a car, you could save a few quid and cut down on paperwork, with a combined car and bike insurance policy.
Household name Carole Nash dub it ‘Six Wheel insurance’ and theirs is one of the most popular policies – but you also have other options.
As well as saving money and only having to worry about renewing a single policy, a combined car and motorbike insurance policy can also have other benefits, like European breakdown cover, Legal cover and a forensic marking kit.
In this article, we’re going to tell you what your options are, why a single policy might be better for you and who the main providers are.
