- Early Switch Discount - Some insurance companies reward drivers for switching to them before your current expiration date. It's a savings of about 10%.
- Good Student - A discount for being a good student can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you well after school through age 25.

- Military Rewards - Having a family member in the military may qualify for rate reductions.
- Braking Control Discount - Anti-lock brake equipped vehicles can reduce accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
- Theft Prevention System - Vehicles equipped with anti-theft or alarm systems help deter theft and will save you 10% or more.

Tailor your coverage to you
When choosing the best car insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a "perfect" insurance plan. Everyone's needs are different so this has to be addressed. For instance, these questions may help highlight whether you might need professional guidance.
- Does my car insurance cover rental cars?
- Should I buy only the required Ohio minimum liability coverage?
- Who is covered when they drive my vehicle?
- Am I covered when pulling a rental trailer?
- Can I get a multi-policy discount for packaging my home and auto coverage?
- Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?
If it's difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. If you don't have a local agent, complete this form or click here for a list of car insurance companies in your area.
