What's the cheapest way to insure two cars?

I have a 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK 350 7G tronic with 68000 miles and have an Aviva multi car policy with my Kia Sportage. Now we have come up for fully comprehensive renewal and for both cars they want £497 with the discount for multi vehicle, but the separate costs are £270 for the SLK and £291 for the Kia. I have full NCB on both cars, max 3K yearly mileage on the SLK and my wife as a named driver. We both have clean licences and are both 68 and in good health. Do you know of a specialist insurance company that would be cheaper for my SLK as it is an occasional car with low mileage of less than 3K per year, we both have clean licenses and have not had an accident since year dot.

What you need to do with your current insurer is alter the use on the Mercedes-Benz and ensure it does not have to and from a place of work on - if you are retired and do not work, take it off completely. At the quote you have been given, that is extremely cheap compared to what it would cost for each vehicle on their own. You would struggle to ensure the Mercedes for £497 on it 's own. Expect your premiums to raise massively next year, as it will for everyone.
