If you’ve ever cringed when you’ve opened your auto insurance bill, you’re probably not alone. Depending on your family’s cars and drivers, those policies can get pricey. But if you haven’t taken advantage of discount options, you may be paying more than you have to. We’ve listed a few of the most common discounts below; give us a call to find out even more!
Bundling discounts: Perhaps one of the best discounts you can get is pretty simple, because you likely need at least a couple personal insurance policies. By adding homeowners or renters insurance (to just name two) to your auto policy, you can save a good chunk on that premium.
Defensive/Safe Driver discounts: Has it been years since you’ve had an accident or a ticket? Or have you recently taken a defensive driving course? If so, you may qualify for a special discount awarded to the best drivers. Score!
Safety Equipment discount: By purchasing a car with safety and security features like airbags or a security system, you can save some bucks every month. Even some after-market products can help you get a discount.
Good Student discount: Are you a college student and paying big bucks for insurance because of your age? Good news; being an excellent student can actually help you shave some money off your auto policy. That’s something worth getting an A+ for!
Military discount: Are you currently serving our country? If so, thank you! And be sure to mention this to your agent to see if they offer a discount for military members.
Multiple Car discounts: Got a whole family to insure? Good news; you can save some money doing it. Lucky for you, most companies offer discounts when covering multiple cars. Finally, something that’s cheaper with a bigger family!
Payment Method discount: Some companies will give you a discount for setting up automatic payments or paying the policy in full. Talk to your agent to see if this applies to you.
There’s a few to get you thinking. What’s the best discount you’ve gotten on auto insurance?
