This article will help you learn the best way to quote coverages and some money-saving tips. If you currently have a car insurance policy, you will be able to save some money using this strategy. But Alabama consumers can benefit by having an understanding of the way companies market on the web.
The majority of larger companies give insurance quotes online. The process is very simple as you just enter the coverages you want as requested by the quote form. After the form is submitted, the company’s rating system gets information on your driving record and credit history and quotes a price based on the information you submitted.
Online price estimates makes comparing rates easy, but the process of having to visit a lot of sites and complete many quote forms can be a bit repetitive. But it’s very important to compare as many rates as possible if you are searching for the lowest car insurance rates.
A less time-consuming method to compare car insurance pricing utilizes a single form to obtain quotes from a bunch of companies at once. It’s a real time-saver, requires less work, and makes quoting online much easier to do. As soon as you send your information, your coverage is rated and you are able to buy any or none of the price quotes you receive.
If you find a better price you can simply submit the application and purchase coverage. The entire process takes 15 minutes at the most and can result in significant savings.

Do you qualify for discounts?
Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but there’s a good chance there are discounts that can dramatically reduce your bill. A few discounts will be applied at the time of purchase, but some need to be inquired about before you will receive the discount.
- Data Collection Discounts – Drivers who elect to allow their car insurance company to monitor their driving habits through the use of a telematics system like Drivewise from Allstate or In-Drive from State Farm might get better premium rates if their driving habits are good.
- Drive Safe and Save – Accident-free drivers can save up to 40% or more on their than less cautious drivers.
- Smart Student Discounts – A discount for being a good student can save 20 to 25%. The good student discount can last well after school through age 25.
- Home Ownership Discount – Owning your own home or condo can help you save on car insurance because it demonstrates responsibility.
- Defensive Driver Discount – Taking a course in driver safety is a good idea and can lower rates and easily pay for the cost of the class.
- Discounts for New Vehicles – Putting coverage on a new car can be considerably cheaper compared to insuring an older model.
- Life Insurance – Not all car insurance companies offer life insurance, but some may give you a discount if you purchase a life policy as well.
You can save money using discounts, but most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce specific coverage prices like collision or personal injury protection. Just because it seems like you could get a free car insurance policy, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy. But all discounts will help reduce the cost of your policy.
