Dont Be Fooled: Avoiding Car Insurance Scams

May 8, 2008
Due to the massive size of the car insurance industry, scams are prevalent. Be wary of this the next time you're in the market to buy car insurance.

There are ways you can protect yourself from the all-too-common car insurance scam. Do your homework. If a quote from an insurance company sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

When you are going to purchase insurance, make sure you purchase through a reputable company. There are many websites out there that are dedicated to posting lists of scammers and disreputable companies. The important thing is to make sure you do your research so you don't fall victim to car insurance scams.

To avoid scams, try becoming an AA car insurance member and get free car insurance quotes. Even if you decide not to become a member of a certain car insurer, you can still take advantage of the free quotes they offer.

Most car insurance companies in good standing will offer you free insurance quotes. If they ask you to pay for a quote, move on. The only thing a car insurance company should charge you for is the insurance premium, along with any associated taxes and/or fees.

Another red flag: Insurance companies that offer greatly reduced fees (compared to the rest of the market), or free months. As stated earlier, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Accept the fact that car insurance is a necessary expense that all car owners have to live with. This doesn't mean that you have to buy the most expensive insurance; just be a smart shopper. All car insurance quotes should be within the same ballpark.

Here's another warning: Imagine your surprise if you were in a car accident, only to find out that your insurer is a fake. Paying for extremely cheap car insurance could cost you a lot more in the end.

The most important piece of advice to follow is to take your time and do your research. A little time spent now could mean saving lots of money, and a huge headache, in the end. Do not rush into anything before you know exactly what you are getting into.
