Drivers should understand that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. So even though it sounds like you can get free auto insurance, you won’t be that lucky.
Companies like Allstate and Progressive continually stream television and radio advertisements. All the ads say the same thing that you can save after switching your policy. How can each company claim to save you money? It’s all in the numbers.
Insurance companies have a preferred profile for the driver that earns them a profit. For instance, a driver they prefer might be profiled as over the age of 40, has no tickets, and drives less than 7,500 miles a year. A customer getting a price quote who fits that profile will qualify for the lowest rates and most likely will save when they switch companies.
Consumers who fall outside these standards will be quoted higher rates which leads to business going elsewhere. The ads say “drivers who switch” not “people who quote” save money. That is how companies can truthfully advertise the savings. This emphasizes why you absolutely need to quote coverage with many companies. Because you never know which company will provide you with the cheapest rates.
Even more information can be read at the Indiana Department of Insurance website. Visitors are able to learn about specific coverages, get help finding coverage, report car insurance fraud, and find a variety of consumer forms.
Affordable car insurance can be bought online and also from your neighborhood Terre Haute agents, so compare prices from both to have the best rate selection.

When trying to cut insurance costs, do not sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There have been many cases where an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage only to discover later that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your aim should be to buy enough coverage at an affordable rate.
