Tips for Lowering Your Car Insurance Costs
 
For some people, car insurance costs can take up a large portion of their monthly income and can sometimes be more expensive than their loan payment. Fortunately, there are ways to lower your car insurance, so read ahead to learn some helpful tips that will help to decrease your premium.  
 
One suggestion is to bundle all of your insurance together. For example, if you already have home and life insurance under the same company, it will sometimes be cheaper to have your car insurance with them as well. Another method of bundling your insurance is to get a group discount. If you work for a union such as the Government, you may be able to get a deal.
 
If you use your vehicle less than the average driver, you should be able to get a lower rate. Most companies will offer you a lower premium, but they may require you to have one “regular” driver insured with them before taking advantage of this deal.
 
Finally, by raising your deductible you can help to lower your premium. You will have to pay more in the event of an accident, but your monthly rate will be much lower as a result.
