Obtaining Personal Insurance For Automobiles

Jan 4, 2008
Obtaining a good rate on automobile insurance is easy if the driver has a good driving record. Most insurance agencies prefer to grant personal insurance policies to people who are low risk because the chance of them filing a claim for an accident is lower than those who have a history of fender benders or citations for speeding. The insurance companies offer preferred rates for being a good driver and these rates make owning and operating an automobile more affordable.

Automobile driver's are always looking for ways to lower their personal insurance rates for any type of vehicle they drive. Some will ask the insurance agencies if they give any type of discounts for membership in the armed forces, or membership in a retirement club. Some drivers will bring in coupons that they find in the local telephone book, that guarantee as much as 10% discounts for opening a new automobile insurance policy.

Some families will add new drivers to a current automobile insurance policy if they have a teenage driver in the home. The personal insurance rates will be higher for this addition because the driver does not have a proven driver record that a rate can be based on. Some schools will offer driving programs which will qualify for an insurance discount when the driving course is successfully completed. Some drivers are ordered to attend defensive driver training through the Court system and are discounted on insurance rates considerably.

Some personal insurance policies for automobiles will be discounted because of the safety equipment that is installed on the automobile. When people go shopping for automobiles, they make sure that they buy one that is equipped with air bags. They know that they will receive other discounts on automobile insurance if the automobile is equipped with anti-lock brakes and if the automobile has a security system installed, the personal insurance rates will be cheaper.

Some families have several automobile insurance policies with the same company. These insurance agencies have probably done a considerable amount of advertising about how multiple car discounts are figured per automobile. Those households that have several cars to insure will stand to save hundreds of dollars over a period of one year. The safety features on each automobile will increase the savings even more on personal automobile insurance for every driver in the home and those with good driving records will see a savings discount for their efforts.

There are other ways to receive discounts on automobile insurance. When a homeowner chooses to insure their automobile with the same company that provides them with homeowners insurance, they will undoubtedly notice a reduction in the automobile rates for the drivers in the home. Further discounts accrue with other personal insurance policies that are obtained through the same carrier such as a life insurance policy or the policies they carry for rental property.

Insurance companies want to keep customers coming back year after year and they will do what they can to guide families into making the right choices for all personal insurance needs. As families grow and expand, there is certain to be other people that will need homeowners insurance or other types of personal insurance and they want to be first in line when it comes time to issue those policies.
