Most insurance companies offer a variety of potential discounts on snowmobile insurance policies. The discount options differ by carrier. For example, while one insurer may provide a discount if you are a home owner, another may not. By owning a home, you are considered statistically more responsible and less likely to take risks. Knowing some of the commonly offered discounts can help you ask the right questions when contacting an insurance company for a quote. Here are a few that might apply to your situation:
Discounts for Snowmobile Safety Course Certification: Snowmobile safety courses are required for sled operators in a number of states. Some states only require riders of a certain age to pass a course. Regardless of whether you are required to get certified in one of these courses, there are many compelling reasons to do so:
Snowmobile Insurance Discounts for Combining Policies: Most snowmobile owners hold other insurance policies, such as homeowners or car insurance. Many insurance providers offer discounts to their customers when they hold more than one policy with the same company.
Some insurance companies will also give you a discount if you insure more than one snowmobile. If you own multiple snowmobiles, be sure to ask about your coverage options and potential discounts.
Snowmobile Discounts for Being a Good Driver: Your driving record can impact your likelihood of being involved in a snowmobile accident. Because many snowmobile accidents involve speeding and reckless driving, if you have a driving record that is free of speeding tickets or other driving citations, you may qualify for a discount. Insurance companies that offer this discount usually require you to have had a clean driving record for a designated number of years.
Discounts for Having a Theft Recovery Device on Your Snowmobile: If you are purchasing a comprehensive policy that includes coverage against theft, you may be able to receive a policy discount if your sled is equipped with anti-theft or theft-recovery devices such as GPS tracking. There are many anti-theft devices on the market, and some newer snowmobiles may come already equipped with them.
Snowmobile Insurance Discounts for Paying in Full or Electronically: Many insurance companies offer discounted rates to customers who pay their annual premium in full rather than through monthly payments.
You may also be able to receive discounts if you sign up for automatic monthly payments. These electronic funds transfer (EFT) payments will come directly out of your bank account on the premium due date. This option may be particularly ideal if you have combined multiple policies through one company and wish to avoid late-fees or the hassle of remembering to make your payments.
In addition to the most common examples listed above, some insurance companies may also offer discounts for being married, for being a member of a snowmobile association, or even for being affiliated with certain organizations. Be sure to research the discount options offered by each insurance company when you ask for a quote.
