7 Simple Ways to Save Money on Car Insurance Quotes

| February 28, 2019

Modern life has no shortage of ongoing costs looking to sap your bank account, so you need to look for ways to save money wherever you can. One of the most frustrating is the cost of car insurance — something that you’re legally required to pay (no matter the safety of your driving), but can vary massively, and often for unclear reasons. You don’t need to settle for the first quote that you’re given, though. If you go about things in the right way, you can absolutely come away with a much better deal. Make your life easier and keep some money in the bank by using these 7 tactics for getting cheaper car quotes: Cut Back on the Miles. The fewer miles you drive each year, the more likely insurers will be to offer you a favorable rate. This is because your car will suffer less wear and tear, making breakdowns and other safety issues less likely, and simply because fewer journeys means fewer opportunities for things to go wrong. When dealing with insurers, be sure to let them know your mileage as accurately as you can — if you can offer proof of your low mileage, it will certainly help. Keep Your Car Under a Roof. Leaving your car outside might be more convenient much of the time, but it doesn’t look good to insurers. Not only will the weather conditions gradually wear at the exterior, but the exposure will also make the car much more vulnerable to thieves (those who steal cars themselves, and those who steal items from cars). If you make sure to keep your car under a roof whenever you park it — and ideally in garage — then you’ll be in a better position to negotiate with insurers.

Claims - the final frontier for insurtechs

Article | March 4, 2020

What is the insurtech difference when it comes to claims? Jonathan Swift mulls on how the Next Generation is starting to figure this out “The claims experience is really critical to our brand and making sure that customers are saying Digital Risks is who I am insured with. Whilst others struggle with that, we want to be a case that if you have a claim it is Digital Risks who you are dealing with.” This sentiment is interesting because there has perhaps been an – incorrect – assumption that insurtechs are really only focused on acquiring customers by making it as simple as possible.
