On the Road Again

This post is supported by Aus Post Car insurance

A few weeks ago my husband was lucky enough to get some time off work. This doesn’t happen very often so Mr Live it, Do it was a little bit excited and phoned me straight away to tell me that we would be heading off to visit our family down the coast in 3 days and gave me a list of jobs to do in true Commando Andrew style. We hadn’t been away for months and months and the simple things like servicing the car and checking our car insurance was up to date were high on the to-do-list. 3 days; 2 Thermomix demonstrations, 3 articles to write, 2 kids to feed and look after and cleaning and packing the car for all of us while my husband had the luxury of being at work; I couldn’t help but have a few words with him… Are you serious? You’re giving me a huge list of “man” jobs to do on top of all the other jobs that I already have? With a bit of negotiation we agreed that I would start with the car insurance, which would be the most important, and then everything else could come later. If there is one thing I am very good at, it’s letting our monthly payments lapse and being dropped from policies without even knowing. Terrible I know!!!! Insurance stuff can be quite overwhelming; I am the first to admit that I have never really had to take the responsibility for much and I would rather call my mum to do the quoting for me, haha! But I knew it was time to put on my big girl pants and do some calling around myself. It’s not the most fun job in the world but it is a necessity when there’s no room in the budget for anything to go wrong.

Budget is a huge thing for us so we always want the biggest bang for our buck.
Searching around online; I was introduced to Australia Post Car Insurance; I felt like I was in the right place with them as they are a brand that everyone knows and trusts. Getting the comprehensive quote from Australia Post Car Insurance online was really quick and super simple, it only took me two minutes from start to finish; that’s pretty unheard of, right? What made my absolute day though was that they were, and still are, having 20% off online. Such a bonus! It was a big job done super quickly and that made my husband more than happy and we could feel safe for our trip down the coast.
We had such a great time away and the $224 that we saved on our car insurance quote by doing it online ahead of June 30th (the 20% discount period), covered our petrol for the trip and a heap of extra treats including a yummy dinner out! We ended up getting to spend such quality time together (this NEVER happens!) going on family fishing adventures and walks along the boardwalk. With Andrew away so much with work, it was time that we really needed together. Such special family memories we will have with us forever.
What is on the top of your to-do-list when you plan for a family trip?
