Tips and Warnings

  • If you have multiple cars, you can save considerably. Some people have separate cars for the summer and winter seasons. Both cars are rarely used simultaneously. Specifying the storage periods of each and buying a comprehensive storage coverage could lower your insurance rate significantly. Even if you have a single car that you may not drive too often, be sure your insurance agent knows this.
  • Sometimes you have to pay a heavy price forcheap insurance. There are several 'catch' clauses such as 'minimum deductible' on a claim. Consult experts for understanding legal aspects.
