How To Get Cheap Life, Health And Travel Insurance

How to save money on life insurance

* Forget about cancer insurance. It is better to invest your money in comprehensive health policies.

* Do not purchase Mortgage Life Insurance – This policy is three to five times more expensive than comparable term-life insurance.

* Do not neglect ID theft insurance. It will not repair your credit score or reimburse you for money taken from your bank accounts.

* Maintain your existing policy, but add to your insurance coverage. Replacing policy will incur new fees and costs.

* Don’t buy life insurance for children, as they are not dependent on your income.

* The policy will be cheaper if you’re younger than the rest of the population.

* Make sure you buy before major health problems arise.

* Price breaks: Ask how much prices rise when coverage is increased to $250,000, $500,000 or $1,000,000.

* Choose the coverage length.

* Don’t always rely upon Work policies. They are often based on a composite of employees and expire when you leave the company.

* “The more someone weighs, the higher they pay” is how life insurance policies are priced.

* Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Build – a high level could lead to an increase in your premium.

You could be charged more if you engage in extreme sports.

* “Spousal Discount” – Get coverage for your spouse as well as your own.

* Make sure your insurance premium is fixed. Some policies may have a fixed premium the first few years, but the premium could rise over time.

* Keep in mind that most companies will calculate your “insurance-age” by the age closest to you, but a few still use actual ages.

* Get to know your insurance company – it may not pay your claim due to financial weakness.

* Do not change your insurance policy until you consider additional charges/fees for renewal.

How to get cheap travel insurance

If your existing health insurance policy covers you abroad, avoid Travel Insurance.

* Buy an annual policy if you plan to make more than 2 overseas trips per year. It will be cheaper.

* Family travel insurance is a good option – Combining policies for couples and families can save money, even though the cost per person is higher than the trip.

* For those over 65 years old, many insurance companies offer discounts for such an age.

* A serious medical condition can increase your insurance rates. It may be a good idea to obtain a quote that excludes these conditions.
