What College Students Don’t Know About Car Insurance

Everyone who drives has to have car insurance. For younger people, that insurance is going to cost more money. However, there are several facts that college students aren’t aware of when it comes to finding an affordable auto insurance policy.

The Amount Of Your Premium Varies By Person

Just because you are under the age of 25 doesn’t mean that your car insurance rates have to be overly expensive. Instead, there are classes, discounts and other ways to lower car insurance premiums for college-aged drivers. Driving an older car, bundling your car insurance policy with other insurance policies and having a clean driving record will significantly lower your rates.

Shopping Around Is An Easy Way To Save Money

You don’t have to stay on a particular insurance policy until it expires. Drivers have the right to switch auto insurance providers at any time. It is a good idea to compare auto insurance companies at least once a month or every three months. Changes to your credit score, driving record or driving a different vehicle could potentially save you money. Take advantage of your changing circumstances to save money.

Staying On Your Parents Policy Is An Option

If you are on your parents policy, you are eligible for whatever discounts they get on their policy. Another good idea is to leave your car at home if you are going away for school. You can then cancel the insurance until you get home or transfer the policy into somebody else’s name.

College students should be aware that there are many easy ways to save money on car insurance. Cancelling your policy can occur at any time and staying on your parents policy can entitle you to discounts and a lower rate that what you may be able to get on your own while in college.
