Different Ways to Get Cheap Car Insurance

There are several things which we can do to lower the insurance rates and some of these are quite obvious. Some will be less obvious but, nevertheless, they are worth a mention to save those dollars every month.

Most of us have anti theft devices on our cars these days and it is worth mentioning when asking for a quote from a licensed agent. They will have their own questions to ask, like how many miles the car does annually etc, so it may be best to have all this information ready. Cars which have stenciled numbers on the glass also qualify for a discount since it is hard for anyone to steal a windscreen or wing mirror when the number of the car is actually engraved into it.

Asking for group insurance on more than one car is also a possibility particularly if the cars belong to one company or family. Very often there is not much difference in insuring one car or two so this can turn into quite a substantial saving.

Getting rid of a second or third car under this group insurance policy may well push the price of the insurance up. Check this out first and keep the excess car on liability cover only if this makes economic sense.

Older cars do not necessarily need a fully comprehensive cover so drop this if possible. Increasing the deductible amount, the portion of the claim paid by the insured person when an accident has happened, will also mean less to pay over the year. In fact, grouping together several discounts like this almost guarantees cheap auto insurance for just about everyone.

When looking for deals on insurance online, always try to check out several and see what kind of different aspects each will have. This takes a bit of studying and the cheapest is not always the best policy. Try to find a cover which best suits the individual needs of the driver and/or family so that most needs are met. Try at least three companies for quotes for cheap auto insurance and compare them side by side. Don't forget to tell them of any devices being used on the car or anything that will make the slightest difference in the quote.

People also do not realize that it is sometimes cheaper to get insurance for cars online since the company does not have to employ agents to come out with the policies etc. In fact, this is possibly the cheapest way to get auto insurance but, and this must be said, do not tell little white lies to get the lowest rate because if an accident occurs and the truth comes out, the whole policy may be voided. Even if it means paying a few dollars more, it is better to know that one is covered under any eventuality.
