How does bundling home and car insurance work?

The concept of bundling is pretty basic. You buy more than one type of insurance from the same company and, in exchange for the increased business, the insurance company gives you a discount. And there’s an additional benefit for the insurer for offering bundles: Customers who bundle are more likely to renew their policies.

You typically get discounts on both car insurance and home insurance when you bundle coverage. The discount isn’t equal for both policies. Each provider has its own discount formulas. Companies may offer a bigger discount on one than the other.

The pros and cons of home and auto insurance bundles

The biggest benefit of bundling your home and car insurance is a cheaper premium.

But keep in mind that you don't always save money by bundling. You could find a company with a low enough price on one of the two policies to result in lower overall rates than a bundle elsewhere. Here’s how that works:

  • If you pay $1,000 for car insurance from one provider currently and $1,200 for home insurance from another, the total is $2,200.
  • Let's say, however, you decide to get your home insurance from your car insurance company. The price is $1,500 for the new home insurance policy, $300 more than what you pay right now.
  • The new combined cost would mean a $300 increase, totaling $2,500.
  • You would need a bundling discount of $400 or so, at minimum, to decrease the total bundle rate by enough money to save when compared to the price you currently pay for the separate policies.

Bundled rates aren't always cheaper in absolute terms. This is why you should carefully compare what you pay for separate policies now to quotes on home and car insurance bundles.

Should you bundle home and auto insurance in New Mexico?

Prior to signing up for an auto and home bundle, it’s important to shop around. Bundling your car and homeowners insurance has many advantages; you only have to deal with a single company and with a single bill and you typically get a discount on both policies. However bundling isn’t always the best deal.

Some companies have cheap car insurance rates but less competitive home insurance rates, and vice versa. You might pay less overall by choosing two different companies for your insurance.

Shop around and evaluate New Mexico car insurance rates on an individual basis and with a bundling discount to make sure you’re getting the best deal before you buy.

In the spring of 2023, Insurance.com analyzed rate and discount data from Quadrant Data Services. The rates, from 2022, are the most recent available to Insurance.com and are based on a 40-year-old male driver with a 12-mile daily commute, good credit and a clean driving history. Rates were fielded for a full-coverage policy (100/300/100 with a $500 collision and comprehensive deductible). Homeowners insurance rates are based on $300,000 in dwelling coverage with $300,000 in liability and a $1,000 deductible.

Auto insurance FAQs

What information do you need to bundle your policies?

To bundle your policies you will need all of the details for both the cars and the home you want to insure. That includes VINs, driver information and details about the home. Your current home and auto policies will list this information for easy reference.

Is there a limit on how many policies can be bundled?

Typically, you can purchase as many insurance policies as you want from the same company. However, that doesn’t mean you can take advantage of a bundling discount with every policy you buy. There may be a limit on the number of policies you can bundle with one company. For instance, you might only qualify for a bundling discount on the three most expensive policies. You should speak with an agent from your insurance company to learn more about the possible restrictions.

What type of insurance policies can I bundle?

Multi-policy discounts can also apply to other types of insurance policies that you buy from the same insurance company. Depending upon the insurer, you may also be able to bundle these types of insurance policies:

  • Condo
  • Renters
  • Motorcycle
  • RV
  • Life

Some auto insurance companies don't write homeowners insurance, but some may align themselves with a home insurer to offer a discount. Ask your agent or customer service representative to see if you can bundle multiple insurance policies.
