There is never any point to be paying more for your car insurance than you should be. You could be paying too much, and you are not aware. There are a number of ways you can reduce your car running costs and coverage costs, some obvious, and some that many people do not know. Here is a look at the mains ways to go about this.
When it comes time to renewing your car insurance, your insurance company will send you a letter to warn you that your insurance is running out. They must do this as required by law. You should use this letter as your starting point. It is not always the best choice to renew with the same company – even if you have a no-claim bonus. Always get as many car insurance quotes as possible. Even get a fresh quote from your insurer’s online quoting tool. You might find it to be lower than what you are paying. Compare all the details of the quote and not just the price. Getting the right coverage, at the right price, is what is important.
2. Drive Carefully.
This is obvious. Not only will you lower your running costs and maintenance costs, you are less likely to have an accident, get speeding fines and ruin your car. Driving your car is a very serious issue. Many of us take it for granted. If cars were introduced today, everyone would be a little afraid. Always remember what it will be like to NOT have your license and your car.
3. Higher Excess.
Excess is the amount you must pay before your insurance kicks in. If you are taking care with your car, and you don’t damage it often, and you are prepared to pay for minor damage, you can greatly reduce your premium cost by increasing the amount of excess you agree to pay. The best car insurance will include options for you to see how much different the cost is. Use the online quoting tools to check the difference in cost. Only a few hundred dollars in excess could result in a huge difference in your premium cost.
4. Look for Tailored Insurance.
Tailored insurance is insurance that is designed for you. This means you could pay for your insurance based on the amount of kilometers you travel. If you only use your car on the weekends, this could be an excellent way for you to be fully covered and have very low insurance coverage costs.
5. Don’t believe gossip and myths.
Gossip is always only what it is, gossip. Get real and concrete evidence for yourself. There are a number of websites that have brand and company rating systems. Use the sites to know what the payout rating of any company is. Make sure you understand what your policy says. That is what you are paying for, nothing else.
6. Package Deals.
Check whether any insurer has other policies that you can also get. If you have great insurance coverage from a company over several areas of your life, it is highly likely you can get a package deal. Bulk buying is the only way to go. You have to have that insurance, and if you can bundle it together, why not?
