Tips to Find Auto Insurance for Your Son

Let’s face it. At this age, your teenager hasn’t had the experience necessary for insurance companies to consider them anything but a high risk. But there are a few things you can do to find good cheap insurance and help keep your premiums down.

Knowledge is power. And it’s our responsibility as parents to pass on this knowledge to our children.

Driver Safety

The first and most important thing you as a parent need to stress to your newly licensed teenager is the importance of safety. Lack of safety is the cause of too many unnecessary deaths in the United States and other countries every year.

If you can’t impart this information to them, send them to a driving school where they can learn from professionals. Most highschools offer their students a drivers education class.

Clean Driving Record

Your teenagers driving record will have a direct impact on the cost of your insurance premiums. With no violations or accidents, the premiums will decrease over time.

Type of Vehicle

If your teenager wants a 2 door red sport about, be prepared to pay a hefty increase in premiums. Cars with 2 doors are considered sports cars and stastics show us that red cars are involved in more accidents than any other color. Cheap auto insurance may not be an option for you with this choices.

Safety Features

Choose a vehicle that is rich in safety features and well built to help reduce your costs.

Deductables

You can also reduce your rates by selecting a higher deductable. Generally the higher the deductable, the lower the monthly premium.

Discounts

When you’re searching for cheap auto insurance and getting quotes from various companies, find out what discounts are available for things like, multiple car policies, drivers education credits, defensive driving coarses completed and clean driving records. The competition in the automobile insurance industry is fierce. Some companies are willing to offer bigger discounts than others.

Tips to Lowering Your Car Insurance Costs

1. Drive carefully. It may sound obvious but as insurance premiums are related to risk then your manner of driving is related to your insurance premiums. Safer driver equals lower premiums. It may not seem so at the time but those traffic violations or speeding fines reflect in your bill.

2. Have a look at other insurance policies you have with other companies. Many insurers offer discounts for combining all your family insurance with their company. Find out who they are and get a quote on all your policies combined.

3. Also note the differences in premiums you would be paying for the type of car you have. Different types of car attract different levels of premium because, in particular, different types of car are driven by different types of people, who may have different types of risk profile. Sports cars, for example, will usually show a higher rate of accidents than staid boring family cars.

4. Consider your deductible. This is the amount you pay first out of any claim, and the cost of your policy is directly related to the amount of your deductible. Higher deductible – lower premium. So consider carefully whether you could afford to pay a higher amount first from any accident and raise your deductible. If so, you will get lower premiums.

5. Safety and anti theft devices can reduce the insurance costs for a car. Talk to your insurance company and find out if there are any safety or anti theft devices that you can install to reduce your premium. Then consider installing them making sure that you notify your insurance company once you have done so. And why not ring up your company and make sure that they are aware of any safety and anti theft devices you already have, if they aren’t you may get a reduction.

6. Always look online for a competitive quote from other companies. Most of the major players and brokers are represented online and it is extremely competitive. Be sure to take advantage of this fact.

7. Don’t just pay your premium blindly without checking if you can do better. Car insurance rates vary all the time and so even if it was the best rate last year it may not be this year. Every year shop around to see if you can do better, you may be surprised.
