Posted in General, Auto, Home

A father and son clap their hands while sitting together in the open trunk of an SUV.

There are several perks to bundling your insurance. Bundle pricing can help you save money on home, auto, condo and other types of insurance coverage. And if you've shopped around, you know that bundles can look very different carrier to carrier.

While you’re shopping for insurance, check out the four things you should do for the best bundling experience.

1. Talk to an agent for insurance bundle quotes 

The first thing to do when bundling insurance is contact your independent agent. No matter what type of insurance you’re searching for, your independent agent can help you assess your coverage needs. Your agent can help you select a bundle that fits your goals.

Maybe you want to keep all your insurance with one company to simplify your experience. Or, maybe you are motivated by cost and want to find the best savings. Your independent agent will work with you to find the best options.

2. Explore different bundling options

During step one, you may have learned about several ways you can bundle and save on insurance. Here are some of the most common bundles insurance companies offer: 

  • Home and auto insurance bundles
  • Condo and auto insurance bundles
  • Auto and renters insurance bundles
  • Home, auto and boat insurance bundles
  • Home, auto and motorcycle insurance bundles

A multi-policy discount is another term for insurance bundles. Be sure to look for this wording if you don’t see the word “bundle.”

3. Weigh the pros and cons of bundling insurance

You can save on insurance when you bundle. However, sometimes there can be limitations to the coverage offered in bundles, packages or multi-policy discounts. Check out some common pros and cons to help you decide what will work best for your goals:

Potential benefits of bundling

  • You can build a relationship with your agent so they can better understand and cater to your insurance needs.
  • You can save time by working with one insurance carrier.
  • You can save money on your insurance premiums.

Possible drawbacks of bundling

  • You may have to choose coverage that isn’t exactly what you were hoping for to qualify for a multi-policy discount.
  • You may only receive bundle pricing during the first year of the policy. Sometimes discounts can roll off your policy over time.

It’s okay if you don’t find the perfect bundle. Separate insurance policies for home insurance, car insurance and other coverage are great options, too.

4. Discover additional discounts

Beyond bundling, learn how to save money on home insurance, auto insurance and more by asking about discounts. Your agent or insurance carrier will tell you all the discounts you may qualify for. The best part—many carriers offer a wide variety of discounts for people in different circumstances and life stages. Here are some of Integrity’s discounts:
