Still have questions about group discount?
Does the discount apply to both my Sonnet home and auto policies?

Depending on your group, some discounts will apply to both your auto and property policies, while others may apply only to one. If you’re a member of multiple groups, you can only apply one discount per policy.

How do I know if my discount has been applied?

During your home or auto quote, start typing and select your group from the dropdown, then enter your group ID. You’ll see a “Discount applied” notification appear throughout the quote flow. We’ll use the information you’ve provided to verify you are a member and automatically apply your discount.
