How else can you save?

  • Pay Attention to Life Changes
    Just married, moved or changed jobs since you last shopped for car insurance? All of these life events could mean significant savings.
  • Shop Early
    Don't wait until your policy expires to shop for a new one. Compare rates more than 2 weeks before your renewal date and you may get an early shopping discount.
  • Think About How You Drive
    Do you carpool, take the bus or travel less than you did a few years ago? If your annual mileage is 10,000 or less, most insurers will offer a discount.
