Auto Insurance Cost Can Vary - How to Lower Your Insurance Costs

If you have ever compared auto insurance rates, you know that the same coverage with five different insurance companies can vary.  Your auto policy premium may vary depending on what type of coverage you have and how many vehicles you have insured on your policy.  The cost of auto insurance can be affected by many factors including if you have a poor driving record.  Sometimes there may be a driver in your household who has had a poor driving record and this can cause the amount of your premium to be high.  You may have a new vehicle that is expensive and this could be making your premium increase.

Before you commit to signing up for insurance, you should check to see what you are paying for.  All insurance coverage sounds like a great idea, but it can drive your premium up very high.  If there is coverage for tapes or CDs, and you decide to buy that coverage, then you could be paying twice for this coverage.  The reason is because if you have a homeowner's or renter's policy, any items lost or stolen from your vehicle can be claimed under a homeowner's or renter's policy.  You are increasing the cost of your car insurance without realizing it. 

If you have purchased death benefit coverage, you may already some benefit upon your death if you have any type of life insurance policy including employer-sponsored.  You are making the cost of auto insurance go up because you are paying for the same coverage on more than one insurance policy.  Another type of coverage that you may be paying for is medical expense coverage. Now, if you don't have health insurance, you should consider buying this coverage.    But if you have good health insurance, you are paying for this coverage twice.  Most health insurance policies will pay for medical care as a result of an auto accident, but this can vary by state.  The idea is to check all of your insurance policies and review your coverage to make sure you don't pay for something twice.

If a member of your household has a bad driving record, this person may be increasing the cost of auto insurance for you.  You may want to speak with the auto insurance company to see if you can exclude the driver from your policy.  This strategy can help lower your auto insurance premium.  You can lower your auto insurance premium, but you have to take some time and review all of your insurance policies.
