How to Buy Auto Insurance Online - Top Tips for Saving Big Bucks

Looking to buy auto insurance online? Want to get the cheapest insurance rate with the best insurance company? Here's how ...

1. Comparison shop - Insurance rates can vary as much as $1,000 between companies, so the first thing you need to do is get quotes at an insurance comparison site before you buy auto insurance online. (See links below)

2. Increase your deductible - Raising your deductible by a couple of hundred dollars can save you up to 50% on your insurance premium.

3. Drop your collision and comprehensive coverage - If the cost of collision and comprehensive coverage for an older car is more than the cost of repairing that car, consider dropping these coverages.

4. Bundle your insurance - Including your auto insurance with your homeowners insurance can save you 15%.

5. Use one company - If you have two or more cars you can save up to 15% by insuring them with the same company.

6. Drop duplicate coverage - Eliminate your medical coverage if you're already covered under you heath insurance policy, and drop towing coverage if you're covered by AAA.

7. Install a security device - Most insurance companies will give you a discount if you install a car alarm or other anti-theft device.

8. Request discounts - Ask your insurer what discounts are available and take advantage of them. Get all the discounts you're entitled to for such items as automatic seat belts, airbags, and anti-lock brakes.

9. Check ratings - You're not saving a dime if your insurance company won't pay your claim. I recommend going to to see what actual customers have to say about various auto insurance companies and how they pay their claims.
