Ways to Save on Boat and Watercraft Insurance
There are a lot of ways to save on your boat and watercraft insurance premiums when you choose Velox Insurance as a partner. Here are a few tips.
Be a responsible boat and watercraft owner.
One of the best ways to save on insurance rates is to keep your boating record as clean as possible. Depending on the policy you have, using your boat without any accidents or violations for a consecutive number of years could make you eligible for a discount.
Pay for your insurance in full.
Like any other insurance policies, you can get discounts if you agree to pay in full instead of installments.
Adjust your boating insurance policy during the off-season.
Boating and watersports are activities for the summer. Thus, one would think that this type of insurance policy is only for the summer, right? But did it ever cross your mind that your boat is still at risk during the off-season? So, if you ever thought of canceling it, you should think twice!
If you want to save money on boat insurance during the off-season, you can adjust your liability limits by dropping other coverages like emergency labor and towing and uninsured boaters. Just always keep in mind that you have to re-adjust your policy before the next boating season.
