    Bundling Home and Auto Insurance: Pros and Cons

    Having your home and auto insurance policies with one company has its advantages. First, the convenience factor is hard to ignore. You’ll simplify your life if you only need to deal with one insurer. But most importantly, quotes for bundles are often cheaper than buying each policy separately.

    We compared several insurance providers by analyzing the number and types of insurance they offer, bundling discounts, coverage options, types of vehicles and craft they insure and the ease of obtaining an insurance quote. Here are the nine best home and auto insurance bundles.

    Companies with home and auto insurance discounts

    Below are the most popular companies, by market share, that offer discounts for customers who bundle auto insurance with homeowners or another line. Discounts shown are averages for each company, but remember that your own rate won’t necessarily reflect an insurer’s advertised savings, as prices are highly individual.

    When to Bundle Home and Auto Insurance

    Pros of bundling insurance
    • Save between 5% and 30% off your home and auto insurance, on average
    • Simplify your insurance management by keeping both policies under one roof
    • Become more valuable to your insurer so it’s less likely to block renewal after a claim or accident
    Cons of bundling insurance
    • Using separate insurers might be cheaper
    • Coverage options vary by provider
    • Complacency means insurers might hike up rates

    Bundling Home and Auto Insurance: Pros

    Bundling insurance policies might seem like a no-brainer. Since bundling increases your insurer’s profits and decreases the odds that you’ll leave it for another provider, companies will usually cut you a pretty good deal for doing so, with discounts for bundling home and auto generally falling between 5% and 30%. And those face-value savings aren’t the only perks to bundling.

    Bundling can help you save on home, auto, and other insurance lines

    As mentioned above, bundling home and auto insurance (the most common option) can save you anywhere between 5% and 30% off your premiums — though most companies’ advertised discounts fall somewhere in the 10% to 20% range.

    Beyond home and auto, you can also save by purchasing life insurance, boat insurance, business insurance, RV insurance, and any number of other lines with your auto insurer. Not all companies bundle all of these lines, of course, but it’s still worth asking about potential discounts with your current insurer when looking for a new insurance product.

    Bundling makes insurance more convenient

    Some people prefer the simplicity of keeping all of their insurance under one roof. When you work with a single provider, you only have to pay premiums in one place, deal with one set of agents and website nuances, and learn to navigate one company’s claims processes. Since insurance is such a complex product in the first place, those little added comforts can go a long way.

    Bundling could make you harder to drop

    Insurers are, as a whole, unlikely to “drop” you midpolicy. However, there are reasons why they might not decide to renew your coverage when the time comes: for instance, if you file one too many large claims or if the company finds out that you bent the truth on your application. But if you have more than one line of insurance open, it’ll likely think harder before deciding not to renew your coverage after an accident or claim.

    Bundling Home and Auto Insurance: Cons

    Bundling deals look pretty attractive at face value. If you’re already insuring your car with, for example, Allstate, and then buy a house, it might be tempting to spring for that 25% discount on homeowners insurance right away. But no matter how alluring the numbers are, you should still do your due diligence by rate shopping before deciding to bundle. There are a few reasons for that:

    Using separate insurers might be cheaper

    First and foremost, bundling won’t always be cheaper than insuring your car and home with separate companies. Each insurer sets rates differently according to your personal risk factors (age, location, driving record, etc.), and the company that gives you great rates for home insurance might not be the same one that’s cheapest for auto.

    That’s especially true for customers with expensive car insurance. Bundling discounts tend to be larger for your home than for your vehicle, so if you’re paying an arm and a leg for auto (maybe because you have an accident on record or a long claims history), it’s doubly important to check rates from multiple companies and see if an insurer with lower rates across the board can cut you a better deal than you’d get by bundling.

    Coverage options vary by provider

    Second, there’s the question of coverage. Every customer — not to mention, every home and vehicle — has unique coverage needs. Certain factors warrant specific policies; for example, you’ll want classic car coverage if you own antique vehicles, earthquake insurance if your home is near a fault line, boat coverage if you’re insuring watercraft, and so on.

    Not every company will offer the select coverage options (or “endorsements”) that you need for both policies. Before jumping into a bundling deal with savings in mind, carefully review the options available and make sure they match your needs for home, auto, and any other insurance line you’re considering adding into the mix.

    Complacency means that insurers might hike up rates

    Last, but certainly not least, there’s a chance that bundling could actually net you more expensive insurance in the long run. Customers who open multiple insurance lines with one company tend to get comfortable and are less likely to shop around when it’s time to renew their coverage. As a result, insurers may nudge up rates each year and assume that loyal customers will continue to pay.

    That doesn’t make bundling an inherently bad decision. It just means that customers who do bundle should keep an eye on their premiums and compare rates every few years to make sure that their current provider isn’t inflating prices unnecessarily.

    Non-Homeowners Can Save With Multi-Vehicle Discounts

    Pairing home and auto insurance is one of the most popular ways to save (and tends to net the biggest discounts), but it’s not your only option for bundling by a long shot. Along with discounts for homeowners, renters, and condo dwellers, most companies will offer savings for customers who simply insure more than one vehicle under their roof.

    Note that “multi-vehicle” discounts don’t just apply to cars and trucks. They can also extend to boats, RVs, sport vehicles, and more. If you’re insuring any type of vehicle, it’s worth calling up your current auto insurance provider to see whether it’ll cut you a deal for adding that second line to your account.

    Companies with multi-vehicle bundling discounts

    Below are some of the top companies that offer loyalty savings for customers who insure more than one vehicle. The types of vehicles included and the potential savings vary by company. As always, that means that you should request personalized estimates for a company whose policies and rates best fit your situation.

    The Bottom Line 

    Insurance companies often reward loyal customers with discounts. If you own a home and one (or several cars) and have a long history of low or no claims, it’s worth shopping around for bundled quotes. You could save between 5% and 30% off on your insurance premiums. 

    Not everyone may benefit from big savings when they bundle their insurance. If you have several vehicles insured with the same company, your premiums may go up across the board if you have a claim for one. There are also occasions when you might save by separating your policies, such as when you’re looking to add optional coverages. The best advice is to do your research first and review quotes annually to confirm you’ve chosen well.
