10 Aug How to Save Money on Insurance
The world of insurance can be very tricky and frustrating at times. Of course we hope we will never have to use it, but we always want to have insurance in case of an emergency.
Check out these great ways to save you some money on your insurance:
Home Insurance: Doing small renovations on your house can actually save you money on insurance. It may seem like a big investment at the time, but you’ll end up making that money back in savings in a matter of a few years. Try installing a hurricane safe garage door or new fire resistant siding on your house. These renovations could end up saving you up to 20% on your insurance premium.
Car Insurance: The best thing to do to ensure that you are getting the best deal on your car insurance is to closely check your bill every time you pay and review your policy at least once a year. You may find that you can save a lot of money and get better coverage with a different company. Be aware of discounts and make sure to ask for them. Your insurance provider sometimes won’t give them unless you ask. Discounts range from good student deals to retired savings. If you are buying a new car, consider how the type of car will impact your insurance rates. Typically, older and safer cars will cost less to insure.
Health Insurance: One easy way to save on health insurance, or with any insurance, is to switch to a plan with a higher deductible. Yes, if you do incur medical expenses, you will have to pay more out of pocket, but on average you will save more per month. Another great way to save on health insurance is to simply improve your health. Quit smoking or get a gym membership. Your insurance company will reward you with discounts if you’re making efforts to keep yourself healthy.
