  • Check the insurer’s solvency – the financial situation of insurers is regularly rated by agencies and the findings of the audits are published on the rating agency’s website, so make sure you check the rating given to the insurer you are considering.
  • Take your time before you sign – make sure you know exactly what you sign. Read the policy very attentively, ask questions if you don’t understand something and don’t let anyone stress you into signing something that you don’t fully agree with.

  • Check the ratings provided by other clients – there are lots of online forums where people share their insurance-related experiences, so visit at least a couple of these forums to find out about the insurer’s way to handle claims, their willingness to pay, their general attitude and their customer service.
