Cut your car insurance rates with discounts
Car insurance is not inexpensive, but companies offer discounts that could drop your premiums quite a bit. Certain credits will be shown at the time of purchase, but some must be inquired about prior to getting the savings.
- Safe Driver Discount – Safe drivers may save up to 50% more than less cautious drivers.
- Renewal Discounts – A few car insurance companies offer discounts for signing up prior to your current policy expiring. The savings is around 10%.
- Distant College Student Discount – Older children who attend college more than 100 miles from home and do not have a car could qualify for this discount.
- New Car Discount – Buying insurance coverage on a new vehicle is cheaper since newer vehicles are generally safer.
- Include Life Insurance and Save – Larger car insurance companies have lower prices if you buy some life insurance too.
- Accident-Free Discounts – Insureds with no claims or accidents are rewarded with significantly better rates on as compared to bad drivers.
As a footnote on discounts, many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most cut the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So even though it sounds like all the discounts add up to a free policy, you aren’t that lucky.
