What Is Insurance Bundling?

Bundling insurance is when you purchase several policies from the same provider—for example: property insurance, auto insurance and life insurance. Insurance companies offer discounts to bundle your policies with them to encourage you to do this.

Pros of Bundling Insurance

If you have more than one policy in the family or household, you can save money with a bundle discount! You can simplify your policy management by dealing with only one company, and some insurance companies offer a single deductible across their policies.

Cons of Bundling Insurance

Your insurance coverage needs may not be met by one insurance company. For example, some companies may be great for house and car but does not offer trailer or ATV coverage.

Sometimes, you may be better off splitting your policies between two companies. For example, suppose you are looking for overland water coverage, a protection for loss or damage related to water entering your property, perhaps, company A offers a lower limit than company B.

When bundling your insurance, make sure it covers your needs. Does the provider offer the coverage required to ensure you are protected in the event of a loss? This, above all else, is the key factor when purchasing any insurance product.

The bundled price for your auto and property insurance quotes may be higher when compared with policies from two separate providers. For example, your bundle provider might offer lower home insurance premiums, but their auto insurance is more expensive.
