The possibility to save money can be a large deciding factor when you’re shopping for one or multiple insurance policies. If you’re a homeowner with one or multiple vehicles in your household, especially with a youthful driver, you might be looking into discounts or other money-saving strategies like bundling.  

There are several benefits of bundling your insurance, but does bundling insurance save money? We have the answers to help you decide if insurance bundling is right for you.

The bundling basics 

Another name for bundling insurance is a multi-policy discount. A policyholder can choose to “package” or bundle two or more insurance policies when placing with a single insurance carrier. Most commonly, carriers will offer a multi-policy discount for home insurance and auto insurance bundles.

Why insurance companies offer insurance bundling options

Here are a few reasons insurance companies offer insurance bundling: 

  1. To simplify insurance and promote ease of use—customers can navigate anything from making a payment to filing a claim for multiple insurance policies.  
  2. To reward customers for purchasing several insurance policies with them—multi-policy discounts are the most common perk. 
  3. To keep customers from shopping around—happy customers who get quality service for a discount are less inclined to leave. 

While home and auto insurance bundles are very popular, they aren’t the only option. Check out these other ways to bundle and save: 

  • Condo and auto
  • Renters and auto
  • Home, auto and boat
  • Home, auto and motorcycle

Although bundling insurance is a great way to save money, it may not be the best fit for your coverage needs. Weigh these pros and cons of bundling insurance: 

The benefits of bundling your insurance

  • You can save money on your insurance premiums.
  • You can save time navigating different carrier details including logins and policy news.
  • You can build a relationship with your independent agent so they can better understand your insurance needs.

The possible limitations of bundling your insurance

  • You may have to select coverage that isn't exactly what you want to be eligible to bundle.

Buying separate insurance policies also has perks and drawbacks:

Pros of buying separate insurance policies

  • You get to shop around for coverage that matches your wish list.
  • You can use the separate experiences from multiple carriers to inform how you shop in the future. For example, you might move all your insurance policies to your favorite carrier after one year.

Cons of buying separate insurance policies

  • You may pay more for your premium because you aren’t receiving a bundling discount.
  • You may spend more time and energy comparing prices and coverages.
