The premium for auto insurance depends on factors such as age and make of your car, risk factors, where you live, driving record, and your age. You have to pay more insurance if you get a latest model car and you are style conscious. Not having an auto insurance coverage is not good. If you don't have good luck and don't have adequate coverage, you could end up in deep financial crisis if you get involved in a car accident or theft of your car.

1. Take time to shop around. Before auto insurance renewal exercise well. Auto insurance premiums differs between online payments, payments by mail, or payments at offices and from company to company.

6. No personal vehicle for travel-related business. Personal use vehicles require lower coverage than work-related vehicles.

7. Purchase one automobile insurance policy to cover all of your family vehicles. Group auto policies almost always have lower premiums than separate auto policies.

8. Find out if your professional organizations or memberships make you eligible for an auto insurance policy discount. AAA members are offered premium discounts for vehicle coverage by most companies.

9. Maintain an error-free driving record for 3-year duration and get automatic premium discount. You can save premium with no breakdowns, moving violations, drunk driving convictions, and accidents. Clean driving record means lower risk.

10. Get insurance coverage from the same provider who provides health policies, home, and extended life for your family. If the company knows you better, they will offer coverage lower than the market rate. This is generally called insurance policy "bundling" or a "muli-policy discount".

Auto insurance payments can also be reduced by living in a reduced-traffic community, buying a low-risk car, and lower accident rates. Insurance companies consider high-performance and sports vehicles as high risk and require higher premiums than a compact car, sedan, or wagon.
