Colorado Auto Insurance Premium Saving Tips & Tricks
You know auto insurance helps protect you and your family in the event of an auto-related claim, but what most people don’t know is there are some little-known tips and tricks that will help you decrease your premium:
- Drive Less. It’s no surprise that the longer you go without a traffic citation or claim, the lower your premium will be. Did you know, though, that by decreasing the amount of miles you drive per year will actually decrease your premium as well?
- Compare Options. The year, make, and model of your vehicle can have a dramatic effect on your premiums as well.
- Bundle Your Policy. Many companies will provide significant discounts (up to 35%) for bundling your home and auto insurance policies together into one policy. By adding your motorcycle, boat, or RV, you can increase those discounts as well.
- Additional Discounts. Insurance companies will often provide a number of additional discounts you may not even know are available to you. These include good-student discounts, safe driver discounts, payment in full discounts, and multiple vehicle discounts.
- Higher Deductible. By choosing a higher deductible you can decrease your monthly premiums. Keep in mind, though, that a higher deductible means you will have to pay higher out-of-pocket expenses in the event of a claim.
