What Is an Insurance Bundle?

An insurance bundle is when you buy more than one policy types through the same company. Insurance companies provide a bundle discount as an incentive to remain with them instead of spreading your policies across different companies. Policyholders can expect to save anywhere from 5-25% on their premium with a bundling discount but not always is the bundle with the same company the best price in total.

Even though a home and auto insurance bundle is the most popular combination, it’s not your only option. For example, you might bundle an auto insurance policy with a renter’s insurance policy or with motorcycle. You can even bundle three or more types of insurance, for example, auto, home, life and RV. Commonly combined policies include :

Generally, you can bundle any combination of the above, and the more policies you combine, the greater the potential savings.

Pros and Cons of insurance bundling

Whether you go at it alone using our comparative website or call our call center to speak with a licensed independent insurance agent, you’ll need the following to get started.

Bundling auto and home insurance has the main benefit of potentially reduced costs and less hassle. Here are a few of the advantages to combining insurance policies.

Saving Money

The biggest draw of a home and auto insurance bundle is the potential savings. The exact savings vary based on your situation, but many can expect to save up to 25% when bundling policies through the same insurance company.

Streamlining the Process

By bundling, you can save time by working with only one insurance company. Which means policies are paid once through a single website, easily viewed on one bill, etc. 

Most homeowners continue to pay their insurance bills through an escrow account tied to their mortgage lender, but can still get a discount on that homeowners premium if their auto policy is with the same insurer.

There are a a couple disadvantages to consider when bundling your insurance policies. 

Bundling Isn’t Available From Every Insurer

Some insurance companies will offer all the policies you are looking for, and some won’t. For example, some companies only offer auto insurance, and others offer several insurance types but not not all the ones you might want. Some carriers will offer a discount on a single policy if the other policies are written through the same agency. Others offer a substantial discount for bundling.

Bundling Isn’t Always the Best Deal Around

Bundling discounts aren’t always the best option for your budget. You may find better insurance rates through  working with multiple insurance providers depending on your situation.

For example, if you work from home and use public transportation frequently, and thus don’t drive often. As someone that drives less than 10,000 miles per year, you stand to unlock significant savings through a pay-per-mile insurance policy. But pay-per-mile companies don’t offer a bundling discount at this time, you might overlook these savings if you are dead set on a bundling deal.

Ultimately, you’ll need to compare your options to decide if a bundling deal is the right fit for you or let one of our licensed insurance agents help you with that 1-877-865-2111
