When you think about insurance, probably the first one that pops into your mind is ‘car’. Rightfully so, because your motor and those belonging to other drivers are the most susceptible to damage. It’s not always a big crash either. It could be that annoying dent in the door from a clumsy, careless opening of another car door that was parked next to you in the shopping centre carpark!
However, there is an insurance for everything. If you can find a broker, then you can get whatever you want to be insured. What I am going to do today is give you the links to a few informative blogs that cover different types of insurance. Some people are pretty clued up on what’s a good deal and what to look out for when you go hunting for those expenses that, in this world today, it´s unsafe to be without.
In the UK, it is a legal requirement to have your car insured. That makes this a necessary expense, like paying for power in your home. Yes, you can get out of it. Don’t own a car! Easy! There are almost 100 insurance companies in the UK alone that will have some deal for you to insure your car with them. Here’s a website that we believe cuts through a lot of the BS and makes you think about what type of car insurance you should be considering.

You would have to keep paying or do a runner to China. This site advertises an insurance company but has some solid info on things you should look for and why you should shop around.
There’re enough horror stories out there that should convince you that going on holidays to another country without travel insurance is not worth the risk. Nomadic Matt tells it like it is even though he does push a particular company. But from this blog, you will get a better feeling about the necessity of having travel insurance.
Yes, yes, I know. You have never been sick, never been to hospital and you’re in the best shape of your life with exercising and a healthy diet. Accidents and sudden illnesses are a fact of life at every age. You need health cover that is a bit more than the National Health. I snapped an Achilles tendon once and with private health cover I was operated on the very next day in a private hospital by a specialist. National Health had me in a queue of over a week’s wait. What’s your choice? Here’s an article/blog by a doctor that’s worth reading.
If I were to recommend one more insurance, that would be PET INSURANCE. If you’ve ever wondered why a vet costs more than a human heart surgeon, how many animals do you know that can speak well enough to tell the vet what the problem is?
