Paying for high-priced car insurance can drain your bank account, especially in this economy. Comparing price quotes is a great way to cut your insurance bill.
With consumers having so many companies and agents to choose from, it can be impossible to pick the most cost effective insurance company.
Smart consumers have a good feel for the different types of things that go into determining your car insurance rates. Knowing what controls the rates you pay enables informed choices that could result in much lower annual insurance costs.
Listed below are a few of the “ingredients” car insurance companies consider when setting premiums.
Car insurance can cost a lot, but you may find discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically when you quote, but lesser-known reductions have to be asked for before you will receive the discount.
As a disclaimer on discounts, most credits do not apply to the entire cost. Most only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when the math indicates you can get free auto insurance, car insurance companies aren’t that generous. Any amount of discount will reduce the amount you have to pay.

Car insurance companies such as Progressive, GEICO, Allstate and State Farm constantly bombard you with ads in print and on television. They all seem to say the same thing about savings if you switch your coverage to them. How can each company make the same claim? It’s all in the numbers.
All the different companies can use profiling for the driver that is profitable for them. A good example of a desirable insured might be profiled as between the ages of 40 and 55, owns a home, and has excellent credit. A driver who matches those parameters will get very good rates and as a result will probably save quite a bit of money when switching.
Drivers who do not match these standards must pay a higher premium and ends up with business going elsewhere. The ads say “customers who switch” not “people who quote” save that much. That’s the way companies can advertise the savings.
This illustrates why it is so important to get as many quotes as possible. It is impossible to predict which insurance companies will have the lowest rates.
When choosing adequate coverage, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different so your insurance needs to address that. Here are some questions about coverages that may help highlight if you would benefit from professional advice.
