More Saving Tips
Pay your premiums up front.
Bite the bullet and forego the monthly installments. Paying your annual premium in one lump sum will save you extra administration fees, and they add up.
Maintain a clean driving record.
This is truly a win-win. Drive carefully which keeps you safe, and keeps your rates down. Your driving record is the biggest factor in determining your auto insurance premiums. A few minor traffic tickets can raise your rates for up to three years, and an accident stays on your record for at least six years.
Combining insurance policies for your home, car and health often brings in rewards in the form of discounts. Also included is insurance for your snowmobiles, RV’s, motorcycles or tenant insurance. These discounts range from 5 to 15 percent. Certainly something to look into.
Talk to your advisor about the discounts they offer.
Raising your deductible, checking into seasonal discounts, and installing telematics are just a few examples of the ways you can tap into the discounts for your insurance. Many companies also offer discount for students, as well driver who have completed a driver safety course.
