3 Mistakes To Avoid When Renewing Your Car Insurance
Is your car insurance due for renewal? Renewing the insurance policy online is straightforward, simple and fast. But if that is the only reason that is tempting you to hit ‘auto-renew’ then you are surely doing it wrong.
We’ve put together 3 common mistakes that people make when renewing their car insurance. The intent here is to guide you in deciding the right cover and saving money on your car insurance.
#1] Not comparing policies
Renewing car insurance is similar to purchasing garments, a smartphone or any accessories. Won’t you do some basic research to land the best quality and the best deals? Apply the same mindset when renewing your car insurance.
What do you lose out on when you don’t compare policies?
● More affordable policy quotes
● Higher-cover package at a lower cost
● Better or additional benefits on the policy
● More add-on covers
● Better customer support and claim settlement
#2] Not opting for the right type of policy
Going back to the shopping example. This time, speaking specifically of a smartphone purchase. Do you settle for any smartphone, or do you check for the required features and then compare the prices of the short-listed phones? We hope you do the latter!
Similarly, it is important that your car insurance policy meets your requirement.
What do you lose out on when you don’t opt for the right type of policy?
● Savings ● Legal protection
Suggested policy type
If you don’t use your vehicle frequently
If you use your vehicle frequently
If you drive safely and want a low-cost policy
If you drive safely and want an extensive policy
If your vehicle is old, or you are going to sell your car soon
#3] Not using the accumulated No-Claim Bonus
If you don’t raise a claim in your previous insurance policy period, you are considered a safe driver and receive a No-Claim Bonus (NCB) as a reward. You can use NCB as a renewal discount.
What do you lose out on when you don’t use NCB?
You unnecessarily pay the premium from your own pocket.
When the time comes to renew your car insurance, check your eligibility for NCB and get it applied to your payable premium, thus reducing your overall amount.
