Nobody looks forward to paying for car insurance, especially when they are paying too much.
Popular companies such as GEICO, Progressive and Allstate continually bombard you with advertising and it is challenging if not impossible to see past the geckos and flying pigs and do the work needed to find the best deal.
Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but there are discounts available to reduce the price significantly. Some discounts apply automatically at the time you complete a quote, but some must be requested specifically before they will apply.
As a disclaimer on discounts, many deductions do not apply to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. Even though it may seem like it’s possible to get free car insurance, companies don’t profit that way. But any discount will help reduce the cost of coverage.
