10 multi-policy discounts for car insurance

How much could you save by bundling all your insurance policies together?

If there’s one trait Australian insurance providers cherish in a customer, it’s loyalty in a competitive market.

As it stands, competition is rife in Australia’s insurance industry – so much so that according to a recent JP Morgan/Taylor Fry report, some insurance firms suffered deteriorating profits over last year. The research also found that 56 per cent of insurers identified competition as their biggest concern heading into 2016. On average, car insurance premiums actually decreased by two per cent in 2015 as a result of this competition.

All of this is fantastic for consumers. With firms fighting tooth and nail over every insurance contract, we’re seeing plenty of online discounts and sign-up offers as insurers encourage customers to switch.

But insurance firms also want their existing customers to remain loyal by having all their different policies (car, home, contents life etc.) insured with them. As such they offer multi-policy discounts which can help customers save money on their total premiums whilst discouraging them from switching providers.

Note that some of these discounts might not apply to extra premiums for optional covers (such as windscreen cover). Also, the discount might only apply to your car insurance and not your other policies. Be sure to read the full terms and conditions of the offers before you apply.

Keep in mind…

While discounts and bonuses sound great, don’t forget that a policy offering a multi-policy discount isn’t always better value than one that doesn’t offer one. You’ve got to take into account the quality of the coverage you’re getting for your money.
