Be sure to get all your discounts

Companies that sell car insurance do not advertise every discount very clearly, so the following is a list of both the well known as well as the least known savings tricks you should be using. If you're not getting every credit you qualify for, you're just leaving money on the table.

  • Lower Rates for Military - Being on active duty in the military can result in better rates.
  • Passive Restraint Discount - Cars that have air bags or motorized seat belts may earn rate discounts up to 30%.
  • Pay Upfront and Save - If you pay your entire premium ahead of time rather than paying monthly you could save up to 5%.
  • Distant Student - Kids in college living away from home attending college without a vehicle on campus can receive lower rates.
  • Life Insurance - Some companies give a discount if you purchase life insurance from them.

It's important to note that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only apply to individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Just because it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you're out of luck.

How do I know if I need professional advice?

When it comes to choosing coverage for your vehicles, there isn't really a "best" method to buy coverage. Everyone's situation is a little different.

For example, these questions may help highlight whether or not you might need an agent's assistance.

  • Do I have coverage when using my vehicle for my home business?
  • Should I drop comprehensive coverage on older vehicles?
  • What can I do if my company won't pay a claim?
  • Do I pay less if my vehicle is kept in my garage?
  • What happens if I owe more than my vehicle is worth?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?

If you're not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form. It's fast, free and can help protect your family.

Best coverage at the best price

People who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as unfair underwriting practices, poor customer service, not issuing a premium refund and questionable increases in premium. Regardless of your reason, choosing a new insurance company is not as hard as you think.

We just covered many tips how you can lower your car insurance rates. The key concept to understand is the more providers you compare, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may be surprised to find that the lowest rates come from some of the lesser-known companies.

As you restructure your insurance plan, it's very important that you do not reduce needed coverages to save money.
