Military discounts are usually 15% off the entire policy. Below are some additional discounts that veterans can apply to.

Bundling Everything

When you choose a provider, check to see what other insurance types they provide. When you bundle insurance types, providers give price cuts.

They love that you are using their services. You can bundle health and life insurance as well. 

Ask your provider or insurance agent what other insurance types they offer and see if you can bundle as many of them as you can.  

Installing Security in Your Car and Home

Home security systems and anti-theft systems for your home and car are great ways to not only protect your property but decrease your rates as well.

Check with your insurance agent and ask them how you can strengthen security in your home and for your car, especially if you live in a city with a high rate of car theft

Keep Choosing the Same Provider Year by Year
