How to save money on car insurance

With some motor insurance policies leaving your bank account running on empty, it’s crucial that car owners shop around to get the green light on a policy that not only covers every eventuality but one that doesn’t leave them feeling an alternative road rage whenever they’re reminded of it. Which is generally every month, when the direct debit goes out.

With the RAC suggesting that one in every three of us pays over the odds for our car insurance, then it really is time we knuckled down and did something proactive about challenging this damning statistic.

So here’s a quick reminder as to how YOU can save money on motor insurance with immediate effect.

How to save money on home insurance

The first way to make sure you are getting the best deal on home insurance is to not be pressured into buying whatever policy your mortgage advisor or mortgage lender tell you to.

Many people think they have to go with a recommended policy in order for the mortgage application to go smoothly, but this is not the case and you can often find a cheaper policy yourself.

How to save money on income protection insurance

It’s right to shield yourself (and therein your dependants) from the spectre of losing your main income source by arranging income-protection insurance, but it’s certainly not just or proper to have to be held to ransom in terms of the policy premiums.

After all, we arrange income protection insurance so as to provide financial respite for ourselves and our immediate family/dependents in the unfortunate event that we should lose our job or see our ability to earn an income compromised in unforeseen ways with regards to serious injury or life-changing illness. And not to create even more stress as we move to shoulder the burden and fiscal cost should this unthinkable scenario present itself.

Which is why we’ve come up with this handy, bullet-point guide which outlines just how YOU can save money on income protection insurance.

Below we share with you just a few of the best tips for locating the right deal for you, which we’d urge anyone planning a trip away to read and make note of.

How to save money on health insurance

The last thing anyone wants is to be faced with the onset of a serious illness or begin the often long and arduous rehabilitation process after recovering from an unavoidable injury. And by the same token nobody would be happy stumping up huge health insurance policy premiums year on year to cover them for such events playing out in the foreseeable future.

None of the tips are brain surgery-complex to get your head around, and by taking this at-a-glance, summarised advice, hopefully you’ll save an arm and a leg when arranging your health insurance.
