How to bundle your auto and renters insurance policies
If you already have auto or renters insurance with your current insurer, bundling your policies is quite simple. You should reach out to your insurer and ask about getting a quote and a discount for bundling your policies. If your insurer doesn't have the option or doesn't offer a discount, you could save money by getting auto and renters quotes from other insurers.
If you want to bundle your auto insurance with a renters insurance policy with a new insurer, usually you will use one of the following two methods:
- Get a quote for both auto and renters at the same time, and sign up for both at once.
- Get a car insurance quote. After you sign up for the auto policy, the insurer will give you a discount on your car insurance if you sign up for renters insurance with the same company.
Some companies will offer you a multi-policy discount even if you don't bundle with them or they don't offer renters insurance. For example, you can get a bundle discount with a Geico auto insurance policy if you bundle it with a renters insurance policy from Assurant, Geico's renters insurance partner.
You may not have the option to bundle if you're covered by a small or regional insurer that doesn't offer renters insurance policies.
Should you bundle your car insurance and renters insurance?
You should bundle your auto and renters insurance if it helps you save money and is more convenient, but bundling isn't always the best or cheapest option for everyone.
Pros and cons of insurance bundles
|Save money by getting a bundle discount||You might pay more for a combined policy with one company than you would with two separate policies|
|Streamline paying bills and making claims||Support experience may be different for auto versus renters claims|
|Some insurers offer a combined deductible, which means you pay one deductible for a combined auto and renters claim|
Insurance bundle opportunities
You can bundle more than just auto and renters insurance policies. For instance, if you're looking to increase your liability coverage beyond your renters insurance policy limits, you may have the option to bundle a personal umbrella policy with your renters or auto insurance — or bundle all three together — to find more discounts.
As a general rule, bundling more expensive policies together tends to provide bigger discounts. Since home insurance and auto insurance are typically two of the more expensive policies, home and auto insurance bundles tend to provide the biggest discounts of up to 10%, according to a ValuePenguin study. You won't get as big of a discount for bundling renters and auto insurance, but bundling could still help you save.
