- How can I add the legal add-on to my policy?
When you get a quote with Marshmallow, you'll be presented with a screen asking if you'd like to add legal cover to your policy. Simply click the green Add Motor Legal Protection button.
If you already have a policy with us, we won't be able to add Motor Legal Protection on for you.
- How much does it cost
If you decided to pay for your policy with one annual payment, your legal add-on will cost £2.50 per month, or £30 for the whole year.
If you chose the monthly payment option, then your legal add-on will be a bit more expensive due to the APR. It'll cost £2.60 per month, or £33.09 in total.
