Santam Review

There are very few people who, if their goods were stolen, would be able to replace them. Here is a Santam Review for home insurance

In other countries, replacing goods yourself without the help of insurance could work, but in South Africa with the crime rate higher than in most other countries, buying insurance cover is in all likelihood more economical.

The whole idea of insurance, after all, is to see that you don’t incur any huge expenses with your loss. And that your financial position remains pretty much intact.

When you buy short-term insurance, you’re taking out a financial contract so as to protect your assets in the case of loss or damage.

When something goes wrong, it can be reassuring to have insurance to help with covering the expenses of your loss. South Africa has a number of excellent insurance providers, and Outsurance is a popular choice.

About Outsurance – Outsurance Review

Outsurance ReviewIt was in 1998, that Outsurance made the decision to ensure that their clients wouldn’t just be continuously putting in, but would get something out too. They were the ones that pioneered the concept of getting some money back if you remain claim free.

This unusual aspect with Outsurance is that their clients get a cash OUTbonus. This is a cash bonus that rewards you just because you have been claiming free for 3 consecutive years. OUTsurance pays 10% of the insurance you’ve paid in premiums back to you in cash.

That’s precisely what Outsurance clients appreciate about the insurer – they don’t dish out discount vouchers or points that but rather give their clients something useful – real money in your pockets and you get to spend it the way you want.

By remaining claim free for another 2 years, clients get another 10%, receiving 10% of your paid premiums back for each claim-free year thereafter. Outsurance like to draw your attention to the fact that after 10 claim-free years, clients will have received 7 outbonuses.

Also, if you’re a party animal and you’ve had one too many. Their Buddy@OUT product allows you to book your own personal chauffeur who ensure you and your car arrive safely at home.

What happens if you Claim? – Outsurance Review

While you may well claim and then forfeit your Outbonus, all is not lost, as a new OUTbonus cycle starts immediately after the claim.  After 3 years of not claiming, as always, you’ll still get your 10% of total paid premiums back in cash.

Outsurance have made sure that their insurance products are simple and affordable – no hidden surprises waiting for you. Another attractive aspect is that Outsurance premiums are fixed for the next 12 months. Whatever insurance you opt for, at Outsurance, you always get something out.
