4 Fast Ways to Help Save Money On A Horrible Car Insurance Premium

Are you currently insured?
Yes No

Updated October 2nd, 2020

Every driver should have an active auto insurance policy well before they get behind the wheel of a vehicle, but the premiums on these plans can be overwhelming.

Here are a few easy steps you can take to keep your premiums to an absolute minimum.

Alter your Deductible

When an insurance provider is determining your monthly premiums, one of the biggest variables they will take into consideration is your deductible.

Drivers who opt for larger deductibles tend to have much more affordable premiums.

If you are a safe driver with a good record, then you might want to call up your insurance provider and ask to have your deductible raised slightly.

This is also a good option for drivers who have saved up quite a bit of money for emergency expenses.

Affects of Altering (Raising) Your Deductible

This graphs shows what ways to lower your car insurance bill really fast.
Note: As illustrated by the graph, raising your deductible is the quickest way to lower your monthly car insurance bill. Discounts, second and bundling a policy, third. The best method is to use a combination of all to lower your premium. Besides having minimum coverage for your vehicle, this is the best option to lower monthly rates.

Keep Your Driving Record Clean

In most cases, an accident will be placed on your record if it is determined that you are at fault.

Even if no other cars were involved in your accident and no one was injured, you could face huge increases to your insurance premiums.

Professionals know that those who are involved in a major accident should consider contacting an attorney to keep the accident off their record.

You might also be able to take driving school to have the points reduced or removed entirely.

Make Your Car Safer

Not only do insurance policies cover collisions, but they might also cover other expenses such as vandalism, theft, and natural disasters.

That is why drivers who are able to keep their cars safe and secure often have much lower premiums.

Simple upgrades such as GPS tracking devices, alarm systems, and kill switches could potentially reduce your premiums.

Drivers who keep their vehicles parked in safe locations such as garages tend to have much lower rates as well.

Bundle Your Insurance

This graph shows which States have the highest discount when bundling your insurance policy.

Many of the leading insurance providers, such as Allstate, offer different types of coverage to private parties and businesses.

Those who have multiple forms of insurance such as life insurance and renters insurance should speak with their provider about bundling their policies.

By bundling your coverage, you will have much more leverage when you are negotiating your premiums and deductibles.

Insurance providers are generally very excited to bundle policies because they are able to retain current customers while increasing their profits.

Just because your car insurance is a fixed monthly expense doesn’t mean it should be an ongoing burden that chips away at your hard-earned savings.

With a few upgrades and a little negotiating, you might be able to significantly reduce your insurance premiums.
