Tips For Finding Affordable Auto Insurance

Sep 3, 2008
These days gas is as expensive as ever, food prices are rising and people are struggling to keep their homes. The last thing we should worry about is saving money on car insurance. Here are some tips for saving money on your car insurance.

See If You Can Find A Better Rate Elsewhere

How often do you see car insurance commercials? They're on TV pretty much every other ad right? Well the reason for that is that car insurance companies are ultra competitive, and they are all fighting for your business. Every year when your policy comes up for renewal, take a few minutes and see if you can save some money. Almost all of them are available for quotes online so there is pretty much no excuse why you don't have the time to do find more affordable car insurance.

Eliminate Extra Cars

Some of you have extra cars and yet others have extra cars that you never even drive. If you have a car you don't use or don't need (or doesn't work!) you should think about taking it off your insurance policy. Insurance companies charge you per person and per car, so if you can get rid of a car, you'll save a lot of money every month.

Get A Discount For More Than One Car

Car insurance companies will often give you a discount if you insure more than one car with them. They would rather give you an extra 10% off your policy and collect your money for more cars than to see you take your cars elsewhere. If your company doesn't have such a policy find a company that does.

Safe Driving Courses

Check with your car insurance company to see if they offer a safe driving course discount. If they do you can save around 10% off the top of your policy and it is often honored for many years. Most courses can be completed quickly but the benefits will last for quite a while. If you have a teenage driver, a safe driving course is an extra good idea.

Increase Your Deductible

Increasing your deductible is risky, but if you can manage to avoid an accident you can save a good amount of money each month. The only problem is, if you somehow manage to wind up in an accident you will pay a greater amount for repairs on your car. This is definitely a risk and reward tip, so it might be wise to explore this tip only when you've exhausted all other discounts.

Don't Get Tickets Or Have Accidents

Ok, so avoiding an accident is easier said than done, but slowing down and obeying traffic signals can easily help you avoid tickets. Quite frankly, how much faster do you get to your destination by speeding? It's not worth paying more for car insurance for the next five to ten years to get there five minutes early is it?
