Working in the comfort of your own home can open you up to lower car insurance premiums!
Car insurance rates are determined by a plethora of factors including what you drive, where you live, and your driving history. It is also influenced by how much time you actually spending commuting.
Luckily, if you don’t have a daily work commute because you work from home, you’re less likely to be involved in an accident, thus lowering your auto insurance rates. Finally, you can enjoy more than just working from your couch in your pajamas!
Some companies are traditional and believe that working from home is a great excuse for employees to get sidetracked watching TV all day and rushing through work at the last minute. However, more and more companies are opting for ‘telecommuted’ staff to save on office space, bills, overhead, to ensure that employees are happier with more flexible hours.
Data has recently shown that those who work from home, thus driving less (that’s the important bit), pay at least 8.4 percent less for car insurance than those who have a daily commute to work. Across the nation, many insurers are rewarding their customers who drive less frequently with a lovely, affordable policy.
