Having to pay for overpriced auto insurance can overdraw your savings account and force you to make sacrifices. Comparing price quotes is a great way to slash your bill and have more diposable income. You have multiple insurers to purchase coverage from, and though it is a good thing to have multiple companies, having more car insurance companies makes it harder to find the lowest rates.
The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you may find discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Certain discounts will be applied when you purchase, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically before they will apply. If they aren’t giving you every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.
It’s important to note that most credits do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like all those discounts means the company will pay you, it just doesn’t work that way. But all discounts will help reduce the amount you have to pay.

Consumers in Nebraska get pounded daily by advertisements for the lowest price auto insurance from companies such as State Farm, Allstate and GEICO. All the ads say the same thing about savings if you switch your policy.
How do they all claim to save you money?
Insurance companies have a certain “appetite” for the right customer they prefer to insure. For instance, a desirable insured could possibly be between 30 and 50, has no driving citations, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. Any new insured who matches those parameters will qualify for the lowest rates and therefore will save a lot of money.
Drivers who don’t qualify for the “perfect” profile will be quoted a higher premium which leads to business going elsewhere. Company advertisements say “drivers who switch” not “people who quote” save money. That’s the way insurance companies can advertise the way they do.
This emphasizes why you need to compare many company’s rates. It is impossible to predict which company will provide you with the cheapest rates.
