"Westhill Insurance – we've got it covered!"

Did you know that smoking damages your health, costs you a packet and puts your home insurance up? So is it really worth it?

The financial crisis has caused an interesting phenomenon with people being stressed, whilst also trying to save money. To ease their finances a lot of people have either cancelled or reduced the amount of household insurance they have. However to cope with the stress of their financial issues a lot more people are turning to smoking in order to de-stress.

Whether you have cancelled your policy or started smoking, both are false economies and stopping smoking can reduce your home insurance premium. There is less risk of a cigarette being dropped or left alight causing a fire.

A pack of 20 cigarettes costs approximately £5 so stopping or cutting back will help save on cash. Plus if you pack up completely you can re-assess all your insurance policies as it is cheaper for a non-smoker. Whilst cutting out your home insurance could leave you stuck in the long run should you have a problem.
