Mercury Insurance Can Help Boost Your Savings Account

By the Mercury Team

Saving money is a common financial goal for many households. With costs going up for big ticket items, Americans work hard to save for their children’s education, to purchase a home, for retirement or just to have in case of an emergency.

In a recent poll of homeowners and renters, Mercury found that 36% of survey respondents don’t have adequate savings to support their families for six months in the event of an emergency. An easy way to help boost your savings that many overlook is to shop around for a better deal on car insurance, which only 25% reported that they plan to do in the future.

Californians1 , for example, can save an average of $677 on auto insurance if they switch to Mercury, according to the state’s Department of Insurance. If you’re a customer of one of the following companies, you could be overpaying by an average of:

  • $1,754 for Liberty Mutual
  • $883 for Farmers
  • $838 for Nationwide
  • $794 for Allstate
  • $581 for Geico
  • $566 for Esurance
  • $383 for Geico
  • $160 for Travelers

There are several additional reasons to choose Mercury for your auto insurance, including a dedicated local agent to customize the right coverage just for you, bundling discounts and valuable resources to help prepare your family and property for life’s unforeseen events, but don’t just take our word for it.
