How to save money on your car insurance
April 19, 2017 at 4:15 PM
There's something about rolling out of your driveway and onto the open road, all you need to be packed nicely into your awesome home on wheels. It's called freedom. A word we all work so hard to enjoy. For most hardy travellers, their car really is an extension of themselves. It allows them to go wherever they like, planned or on a whim. But what makes taking holidays in a motorhome so special? What about insurance cover for everything like driving in multiple foreign countries and the bicycles attached to the back? How free are you really?
Birds have wings; humans have wheels
Granted, there's a lot to consider, but the rewards are many. Some people have it all down to the finest detail. Others don't consider anything beyond the cheapest cover, just to be legal. As you know, you can organise any of these things in a short session online or by speaking to an agent.
Do these three simple things and get the best price possible
Peace of mind is a huge part of that freedom we mentioned. So rather than scrimp on getting adequate cover for your mobile home, take advantage of the discounts available and have more peace of mind to enjoy yourself creating great memories.
1. Ramp up security
Many insurers offer discounts for vehicles with industry-approved alarms and tracking devices. Even a steering lock can cut down your premium.
2. Think about excess
We all hear how paying extra excess saves forking out hundreds upfront if you need to make a claim. Obviously paying only a fraction towards replacing devices like phones and tablets appeal to all of us. But how about leaving some things behind and embrace the great outdoors without distraction? Fewer things to cover means fewer things to replace and a lower excess contribution.
Stop dreaming and start planning
Now you know you can save money on car insurance without denting your holiday funds or compromise on the cover, it's time to start planning. Imagine parking up next to one of your bucket list must-see places, cooking a meal fit for a king and watching the sun set with your loved ones. How about waking up to the sight of rippling waves lazily washing over fine pale sand? Do you prefer the mountains or the beach? The great thing about freedom is that you don't have to choose.
