Advantages to Bundling Your Home and Car Insurance

Auto Insurance

By Smart Bug | January 12, 2016

Most of us begin our journey with insurance when we start to drive. Often we are added to our parents’car insurance policyto help keep costs down while we build up a safe driving record and insurance history.  The next step is either getting your own car insurance policy or moving out and needingrenter’s insurance. Or you’re buying your own place and requirehome insurance.

But may people don’t know that you “bundle” your insurance with one company to save money on your premiums.

Bundle Your Insurance and Save

Don’t be surprised if the car or home insurance policy rates are more expensive at one company if priced separately and cheaper with that same company on a bundle. Companies that offer bundle discounts may not always be the cheapest when comparing just one policy at a time. That’s because these bundle discounts are aimed at attracting customers who have more than one policy. It’s kind of like bulk buying—the more policies you have the better the discounts.

It’s not unusual for families to spend between $2 000 and $5 000 on home and car insurance premiums each year (although rates vary depending on a number of factors). But combine two or more policies and most companies will offer a discount—and this can go up the more policies you add. For a family that spends $5 000 per year on insurance this can mean a savings of $250 to $500 at least.

Other Advantages to Bundling

There are several other distinct advantages to bundling including:

  • Coverage gaps are minimized when all policies are held with one insurance company.
  • Many companies allow consumers with bundles to pay only one deductible versus one for each policy e.g. one for car and one for home.
  • Some insurance companies offer additional coverage at no charge when consumers bundle home and car insurance with their company.
  • Consumers have the convenience of only one insurance company handling their policies.
