Six Ways to Save on Home Insurance

Hero Image

From groceries and fuel to utilities and insurance, we’re all paying more these days. That has many of us looking for ways to save on the things we need. For instance, whether you own or rent, you should have home insurance to financially protect your property and belongings against vandalism, theft and damage. That said, there are some ways to reduce your home insurance costs.



1. Review your policy for missed savings.


Have your insurance agent or broker review your current home, cottage, condo or tenant insurance policy to see if there are opportunities to save. A licensed CAA Insurance Agent1 can review your current plan—even if you’re with another provider—to ensure you have the best plan and benefits to fit your needs. Get a review before you renew. You have nothing to lose, and potential savings to gain.



2. Help safeguard your home to maximize savings.


Install smoke alarms, regularly check for water damage, and maintain your heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems to minimize potential claims and keep your premium down. Depending on where you live, you can save with a centrally monitored alarm or sump pump.



3. Stay claims free.


Your claims history can also help lower your premium. The longer you’re claims-free, the more you’ll likely save. Depending on your province, you can receive a discount on your CAA Home Insurance2.



4. Bundle your insurance


Most insurers offer savings when you have multiple policies with them. With CAA Insurance2, when you bundle your auto and home insurance, you can save money and get perks like included legal expense coverage and tire protection3.



5. Use your connections.


If you’re a member of a club like CAA, or an association or union, that can help you save. While you don’t have to be a CAA Member to get CAA Home Insurance2, Members can save up to 20%4 on their home insurance (depending on your province). Plus, CARP Members get a special bonus for getting a home insurance quote. It pays to leverage your connections.



6. Raise your deductible.


Raising your deductible can help bring down your annual insurance premium. As long as you remain claims-free, this can work well to your advantage.
