Saving on Car Insurance

Finding car insurance does not have to be a stressful process- let us help. Below are 5 tips to help you choose the right one for you.

Annual Rate Check

Do an annual rate check. Check rates from other companies to make sure you are getting the best deal. Many state insurance departments offer guides to available services, and while online you can find insurance comparison tools. Of course, personalized quotes aren’t immediate and often require a call back from an agent, but comparison shopping online can be a time-efficient way to find a better deal.

Pick a top-rated insurer. When we last surveyed readers/subscribers on their auto insurers, we found that all rated companies did well, but some were better than others with dealing with claims, payments, and non-claim problems. See our full Ratings of car insurers.

Maintain good credit. Regularly check your credit score since a low score may impact your premium.

Set The Right Deductible

Set the right deductible. A higher deductible reduces your premium, but you have to pay more out of pocket in the event of an accident. If you have a good driving record and haven’t had an accident that was your fault, you may want to gamble and opt for a higher premium. The reward for this risk could be up to a 40 percent savings.

Review your coverage. Check to make sure you have enough liability coverage for bodily injury and property damage. Over time, costs and risk increase, and so should your coverage. Simply put, minimal coverage gives you minimal protection.
