2. Consider extras

Nearly all companies in the insurance industry propose extras to be included in the contract. You normally insure your car or house with a certain amount of payouts but you can double these figures by paying just an additional 15% of the policy price.

However, don’t be furious about extras though – people sometimes pay even more for contract extensions.

Insurance intelligence is getting much more important today than it was years ago. A whole range of items and things are being insured: cars, homes, health, travelling overseas, life and even parts of the body.

3. Do you really need that annual policy?

It’s yet another example of how insurance companies earn money by confusing clients. Agents will suggest to you that these days annual propositions are highly gainful. However, you’ll need to check if you really need an annual policy. A good example is when buying travel insurance. Maybe you only need it for 10 days of vacation but if you’re not careful, you are likely to pay for the whole year, thereby giving away more than 10 times the amount of money you could have paid for it.

Sometimes annual insurance is necessary but only if you intend to cover things you do or use regularly so as to justify the huge expenditure.
