New Zealanders are notoriously underinsured and yet with insurance costs having double in some cases in the past year, it's one area of personal finance that cash-strapped Kiwis are likely to continue to neglect.

Knowing how much insurance is enough, how to get the best bang for your insurance buck and which insurance company to trust  isn't as hard as you may think.

Hi Amanda,
 
I feel very helpless to the sky-rocketing insurance premiums. It seems that many ordinary Kiwis, including me, ought to work in money-printing factories in order to keep up with the ever increasing financial burdens....

Which ones have gone up? earthquake insurance?  all my others are really flat (ish).  The Eq component though looks to add 50%+ to my monthly house insurance cost.
