Insurance 101

5 Ways to Take the Boring Out of Insurance. No. 5 Is Our Favorite!

Know you should get the right insurance protection, but just can't seem to get the motivation? Here are a few ways to make it more fun and less boring.

People usually don’t prioritize insurance coverage except if it is required by law, for example car insurance where it is mandatory for any vehicle driven on the road to have an active coverage. But how do you get the motivation to focus on getting insured, or get adequate protection for your loved ones against unforeseen circumstances like illnesses, accidents, hospitalization, or worse?

The good news is, insurance is not what it used to be 5-10 years ago – and that’s a good thing! You can now say “bye-bye” to long queues at the branch, sign stacks of application papers, get policy copies mailed to your house, and spend all that money yet have nothing to show for it, not even a road tax sticker sometimes!

Here are some tips that you can use to enjoy some perks from paying for your insurance policies, making it worth the bucks.

Part 1: Understand What Your Policy Covers

1. Focus on buying innovative insurance products

Why do you need to consider going for an insurer with a good innovation record? When an insurer emphasizes in innovating its insurance products, this shows that the organization is committed to delivering long-term value to its customers.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many insurance companies have rapidly digitalized their customer and agent experience by adapting their products based on emerging needs, creating meaningful interactions with loyal and new customers, providing access to great features, rewards, benefits, and more.

So why not take the opportunity to find out which innovative insurance products and coverage can suit your needs and ensure that you are protected wherever you go? You can start by checking out SmartDrive Safe car insurance which comes with an optional Bravo Safe add-on to double up as a safety feature for you and your vehicle.

2. Always choose easy and fast over complicated

In this digital era, being able to purchase an insurance policy online should be the norm, especially on mobile devices where people are mostly on. By making insurance purchases accessible on mobile devices, customers can get instant protection anywhere around the clock.

This would require minimal use of papers (yay to going green) and face-to-face meetings with an agent or at the counter. All necessary documents can be received by email almost instantly! Of course, if you need additional assistance on your policy, the customer service team is readily available to answer all your inquiries.

However, if simple and easy products do not suit your needs, just contact any of our agents and partners - they are always ready to assist you with what you need.

3. Choose flexible coverage to suit your needs

Insurance companies know that customization is one of the biggest selling points in retaining existing and attracting new customers. The more customization allowed to customers, the more attractive a policy package becomes.

The flexibility afforded to customers should give you an indication that the insurer takes customer loyalty seriously. Hence, catering to a product to solve a customer’s pain points is a huge bonus!
