Trying to plan ahead for your car registration renewal process and want to figure out your car insurance renewal options? Surely this blog will help!

A lot of people in this day and age still think of purchasing insurance as an overwhelming or dull process. Surprisingly, many still choose traditional, slightly old-fashioned, and perhaps costlier options to do so too! Let us try to clarify your car insurance renewal options and what we think is the smartest way!

First: Auto-renewing your existing car insurance policy

An option many people seek: thinking it’s the easier option and requires little to no evaluation of the policy. They assume it’s a process of sending an email to the current insurance provider, glancing at the quotation and paying it immediately. But the truth is that taking the “easy option” might mean paying a much bigger premium than what you could get elsewhere. Wrongly, many are influenced by an assumption that buying car insurance requires a lot of knowledge and a lot of work. We can assure you though that nowadays it’s way easier than first thought!

Second: Purchasing car insurance at the Vehicle Inspection Centre

Of course, there is always the “last minute” or “emergency” option, which is buying your car insurance right before you renew the registration in RTA’s Vehicle Inspections Centres. While you might be offered different options, you may be paying extra as well as sellers recognise you’re influenced by the timing factor and therefore see you as a “captive audience” since you are probably buying insurance at the final moment.

Third: Contacting individual insurers and comparing quotations

This is probably the most time-consuming option we will talk about, but would probably provide you with less costly quotations in contrast to the two mentioned methods above. With this method, you will have to list all potential insurers, contact all of them to ask for quotations, and take a while to thoroughly go through all the quotations to find out your best option.

While the concept is sound, the process might be exhausting, which is why we recommended the next option!

Fourth: Purchasing car insurance through a comparison website

This is the smart option and one you should utilize from now onwards for all your insurance needs! With an insurance comparison website, you’ll only need minutes to fill in the details of your car and get offered different quotations from different insurance companies. Simple!

A website with a dedicated personal shopper will have him talk to you and advise the top three options for your car and budget: ensuring both satisfaction and the best value for your money. Unlike most other options, with this you can buy your insurance policy from anywhere you are, and rest assured you’re getting an extraordinary deal!
