Unbelievable but true according to a study the majority of drivers kept their coverage with the same auto insurance company for over three years, and almost half have never even shopped around for lower-cost coverage. Consumers in Texas could save an average of roughly 70% each year just by comparing rates, but they underestimate the benefits if they changed companies.

Insurance quote for Saturn VUE in Fort WorthThe best way we recommend to save money on car insurance rates is to make a habit of comparing prices annually from providers in Fort Worth.

First, try to learn about the coverage provided by your policy and the things you can change to prevent expensive coverage. Many rating criteria that are responsible for high rates such as multiple speeding tickets and a negative credit rating can be controlled by making lifestyle changes or driving safer. Keep reading for more details to prevent expensive rate increases and get additional discounts.

Second, request price quotes from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only quote rates from one company like GEICO or State Farm, while independent agencies can quote prices from multiple sources.

Third, compare the new quotes to your current policy to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find a lower rate and decide to switch, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.

Fourth, notify your agent or company of your decision to cancel the current policy. Submit a down payment along with a completed application to your new company or agent. As soon as you can, keep the new certificate verifying proof of insurance in an easily accessible location.

The most important part of this process is to make sure you're comparing identical deductibles and limits on each quote request and and to analyze as many different insurance providers as possible. This enables an accurate price comparison and a thorough price selection.

The best way to compare insurance rates from multiple companies is to take advantage of the fact most of the larger companies allow for online access to provide you with free rate quotes. To begin a comparison, all you need to do is provide details such as whether you are married, an estimate of your credit level, how old drivers are, and deductibles desired.

  • Responsible Driver Discounts - Drivers who avoid accidents can get discounts for up to 45% lower rates as compared to drivers with claims.
  • Waiver for an Accident - This one is not really a discount per se, but companies like Progressive, Allstate, and GEICO may permit one accident before your rates go up with the catch being you have to be claim-free before the accident.
  • Professional Organizations - Having an affiliation with specific professional or occupational memberships or organizations can get you a small discount on your next renewal.

Five Tips to Get Cheaper Fort Worth Insurance Premiums

Lots of things are part of the calculation when you get your auto insurance bill. Some are obvious such as traffic violations, although others are not quite as obvious like your vehicle usage or your commute time. A large part of saving on auto insurance is knowing the different types of things that come into play when calculating your policy premiums. When you know what positively or negatively impacts premium levels, this allows you to make educated decisions that could help you find lower premium levels.

The itemized list below are some of the major factors auto insurance companies consider when setting rates.

  • Type of car, truck or SUV determines base rates - The performance level of the car you need insurance for makes a substantial difference in your rates. The lowest base rates are for lower cost passenger vehicles, but other factors influence the final cost greatly.

    The data below uses these variables: married male driver age 20, full coverage with $1000 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. The chart compares Saturn VUE policy rates compared to other vehicles that have different performances.

  • Liability coverage is cheap - Liability coverage is the coverage that protects you if you are found to be at fault for personal injury or accident damage. Liability insurance provides legal defense which can cost a lot. Carrying liability coverage is mandatory and cheap compared to insuring for physical damage coverage, so drivers should make sure they buy enough to cover all assets.
  • Never let your auto insurance expire - Allowing your auto insurance policy to lapse is a quick way to increase your rates. Not only will rates go up, getting caught without coverage may result in a steep fine or even jail time. You may need to submit proof of financial responsibility or a SR-22 with the Texas DMV.
  • Does your occupation cost you more? - Did you know your career choice can influence rates? Jobs such as military personnel, executives, and emergency personnel have higher premiums than the average policyholder due to intense work-related stress and incredibly demanding work hours. Conversely, careers such as scientists, students and the unemployed have the lowest average rates.
  • Women tend to take less risk - Over time, data shows that females tend to be a little less risky than males. That doesn't necessarily mean that women are better drivers. Both sexes cause fender benders in similar percentages, but the men have accidents that have higher claims. Not only that, but men also have more aggressive citations like driving under the influence (DUI).

    The diagram below shows the difference between Saturn VUE car insurance rates for male and female drivers. The costs are based on no accidents or driving violations, comp and collision included, $100 deductibles, drivers are single, and no additional discounts are factored in.
