Due to the high cost of vehicles and our society’s litigious nature, car insurance rates are on the rise, and aren’t likely to go down anytime soon. However, there are things you can do to lessen the financial burden. Below are some tips you can use to save money on car insurance.
Insure more than one car or driver: If you get a quote for a single vehicle, you may end up with a higher price than if you get a quote for multiple drivers or vehicles. Insurers offer ‘bulk rates’ because they want your money, and under certain circumstances, you can get a great deal. To get a discount, you and the other drivers must live together and be related by marriage or by blood. Some insurers offer multi-policy discounts if you have home or life insurance with their company.
Keep your record spotless: The more violations and accidents you have, the more you’ll pay for car insurance. You get points on your license for moving violations, and in most cases, those points add up to higher premiums.
Take a driving course: Some insurers offer discounts for those that finish defensive driving courses, and in some cases drivers can get points taken off their license by taking a safety or accident prevention course. Ask your insurance agent about such discounts before signing up for a class.
Comparison shop: If you’ve just renewed your policy at a higher premium, consider getting competitive quotes from other companies. It makes sense to do that every two or three years, in case you can find a lower rate. However, the cheapest isn’t always the best.
Choose a practical vehicle: Buying a sports car may sound tempting, but it will be more expensive to insure than a safe, practical family sedan. Older cars are typically cheaper to cover than modern cars; talk to your insurance agent about rates for each vehicle you’re considering.
