How to get cheap car insurance quotes?

By Edited Nov 12, 2015 1 3

Everybody wants cheap car insurance. You need to know what factors the car insurance company is going to use when calculating an insurance quote for you. Insurance companies use your driving history and driving record, your credit, your age, type of liability requested and much more to determine your car insurance quote. To be able to get the cheapest car insurance quotes, you need to follow the steps in this article.

Things You Will Need

Driver's License

Car to be insured

Car Registration

Step 1

Keep a clean driving record. Your driving history affects the price of your insurance. If you get many traffic violations, your car insurance quotes and rates are going to be more expensive. Don't speed or drive without car insurance. Driving without car insurance will result in you having to pay for a SR22.

Step 2

Keep a good credit score. Insurance companies now use personal credit to determine insurance quotes. If you have bad credit, your car insurance will be much higher than someone who has good credit.

Step 3

Make sure if you are a student driver, you need to have good grades to be able to get cheap car insurance. Just like the above step, having good grades shows a sense of responsibility. Insurance companies only want to insure responsible drivers.

Step 4

Compare insurance companies. Contact different insurance companies and compare insurance quotes. Many insurance companies have different insurance rates and every dollar will help you find the cheapest car insurance.

Step 5

Ask for only liability coverage. Liability car insurance coverage is State required and if you own your vehicle, then you may not legally need any additional coverage. Getting only liability coverage will help you find the cheapest insurance quotes.

Step 6

Try getting on an experienced driver's car Insurance plan. If you are a young driver, you should ask your parents to insure you as a driver. This will make your insurance quote cheaper. Your age and years of driving affects the amount you will pay on car insurance. When contacting different insurance companies, give them all of your information and they will calculate the cheapest Car Insurance quote for you.

Last year I was sure I was paying too much for car insurance, but I checked around; and I wasn't. Thanks for the article! My car insurance is due again now, too!
