Auto Insurance Tips

Getting The Best Coverage
... At The Best Price

Auto insurance requirements vary from state to state. You need to check with your state insurance regulator to learn more about individual requirements, as well as insurers you may be considering for your policy.

To get the best coverage at the best price you need to get several quotes from different insurance companies. Doing so may save you hundreds of dollars per year. Here are other ways to reduce your insurance premiums:

  • Raise your deductibles on collision and comprehensive coverages. If you have an old car, you might want to drop these coverages altogether.

  • Take advantage of discounts. You may be eligible for a discount based on the number of miles you drive; your age (turning 25 or 50); your good grades if you are a student, your driving record (no moving vehicle violations or accidents in three years); or if you've taken a safe-driving course. You might also be able to get discounts if you insure more than one vehicle, insure your vehicle and your home with the same company, have anti-theft devices or have safety features such as air bags.

Auto Insurance Tips

  • When shopping for auto insurance on the Internet, check that the website is secure. Look for the lock icon, a URL that begins "https:" Notice the "s" on the end. Never provide personal data if you don't trust the site.

  • Be wary of people selling auto insurance door-to-door and over the telephone.

  • Be suspicious if, after an accident, a stranger contacts you to offer "quick cash" or recommends a particular attorney or healthcare provider. Be sure to report the incident to your police department.

  • Don't give your insurance identification numbers to companies you don't know.

  • Carry a disposable camera in your glove compartment. If you are in an accident, take pictures of the damage and the people involved. Ask for names, telephone numbers and driver's license information for all those involved. Getting contact information for any witnesses is also a good idea.
