Shop around and save


More than 80% of Aussies renew their car and home insurance without approaching other companies, according to Roy Morgan Research. One can assume similar figures probably apply on other services such as health insurance, phone plans and utilities. That could end up being a costly mistake.

And you don’t even have to wait until renewal time – if you’re looking to save some extra cash in 2013, start shopping for better deals.

When Canstar crunched the numbers for Money’s Best of the Best awards, the average annual premiums for car insurance differed by more than $1050 – from $654.05 to $1705.58. And for home & contents insurance the variation was even bigger: the cheapest average annual premium was $692.30 and the most expensive $2765.70 – a difference of $2073! So clearly it pays to shop around. Just make sure you compare like with like and get all the features you want in a policy for the cheaper price – otherwise it will be a false economy.
