Bundling and Car Insurance

There is little doubt you have heard the term bundling when it comes to personal insurance. But what is bundling, and why do insurance companies generally want you to do it? What types of insurance can be bundled, and what are the positives and negatives of bundling insurance?

If you live in the Bethlehem, PA, area and have wondered whether bundling is for you, here is what you should know from Saucon Insurance Agency.

What is Bundling?

Bundling is when an insurance provider offers two or more policies to a customer, usually at a discounted price. In essence, the insured buys multiple policies at a price that may be lower than if the policies were purchased individually.

What Types of Policies Can Be Bundled?

Almost any combination and type of insurance may be bundled, but generally, it refers to car insurance being bundled with homeowners’ or renters’ insurance.

Why Do Insurance Providers Encourage Bundling?

Basically, selling more policies to fewer policyholders is more efficient for insurance providers. Managing and servicing fewer customers with more policies can be more profitable. These savings can be passed down to consumers through a bundling discount.

What Are the Benefits of Bundling for Consumers?

Bundling allows insureds the ability to work with fewer providers. It also can lead to some significant savings.

What Are the Downsides to Bundling?

Bundling can be an issue if a consumer has a problem with how a company handles their car insurance claim but is happy with the homeowners’ coverage. Dropping one or the other can cause you to lose your discount. It can also be a little more confusing regarding how much you pay for each. Some people would rather have multiple banks and multiple insurance providers.
