What does it mean to bundle insurance policies?

You may find yourself wondering “What exactly does bundling mean?” Let’s dive into what it means to bundle your insurance policies. First, let’s define it. An insurance bundle means that one policyholder has more than one insurance product with the same insurance company. One of the incentives for doing so is often a discounted rate. The discount that is given when two or more policies are bundled together is sometimes also known as a multipolicy discount.


What are the advantages of bundling my insurance policies?

A multipolicy may come with a wide variety of benefits and perks that vary from insurer to insurer. Two of the most common advantages of bundling two or more policies are that it will allow you to save money on your policy and save time when writing or managing your policy.

Bundling discounts will vary by insurance company, but you may save an average of 5 to 25 percent on each policy. The national average of savings when bundling your auto and homeowner’s insurance is around $200 off of your annual premium.

When you bundle your policies, your insurance carrier becomes a one-stop shop for all of your insurance needs. This will save you time whenever you need to manage your policies in any way. By having all of your insurance policies with one company, your carrier will be familiar with the full extent of your insurance history. 

For anyone who struggles with staying on top of their bills, bundling policies can be a convenient way to consolidate payments. Additionally, if you utilize direct deposits to pay your monthly bills, you may be able to receive an additional discount.


How do I bundle my home and auto policies?

If you are interested in bundling your insurance policies, a good way to start is by contacting your insurance agent. With the help of your agent, you will be able to find the best combination of policies that fit your coverage needs and your budget.
