After I switched to Progressive I got into a car accident. I did not know exactly what I needed to do, but the people at progressive helped me the entire way. All I had to do was choose where I wanted to have my car repaired and they did the rest. Since I used one if the shops they referred I had my car back in less than a week. Quick and painless, all I had to do was make a call.
Type of car: If you have an expensive or powerful car then you are seen as a higher risk for a number of reasons. If it’s expensive, it has a higher risk of being stolen. If it’s powerful, it’s deemed more at risk of getting into an accident driving at speed. If you want to see how your car impacts your insurance, you can check which insurance group it’s in for an indication.  
With Nationwide, there are lots of ways to protect your teen while staying within your budget. For example, a higher auto insurance deductible may lower the rate, but could mean more out-of-pocket expenses after an accident. If the vehicle is older or has very high mileage, liability coverage may be a better option than collision or comprehensive – though it will not cover damages to the car after an at-fault accident. Getting the right coverage that best fits your needs is important for saving money on your teen auto policy. Learn more about Nationwide’s auto insurance coverage types today.

Every car is classified into a different insurance group, numbered from one to 50. The cheapest cars to insure sit in the first group, but the more powerful or valuable the car, the higher and therefore more expensive the insurance grouping. Cars which have been modified to improve their performance also sit in the higher groups, making them much more expensive to insure.

I just saved about $400 dollars a year by switching to AAA from State Farm. The coverage for my cars is the same and the coverage for my home is much better (and cheaper) than before. I have a credit card through AAA, roadside assistance through AAA and finally, my insurance through AAA. I could not be happier. On all fronts, AAA has the best customer service I've ever encountered.

Some car insurance companies will offer discounts to young drivers who have completed advanced driving skills courses as well as those drivers who have signed up for a minimum of ten driving lessons from a reputable driving instructor. Before finalising the purchase of your young driver car insurance policy, be sure to question your insurer about any possible discounts that you may be eligible to avail of.

Car insurance for college students can be pricey for sure, but you can capitalize on certain discounts. One that can reap up to 20 percent off is the “Student Away” discount. Typically, you qualify if you are listed on your parent’s policy and drive one of their cars they keep at home but attend college 100 or miles away. Some insurers may also require that you are under age 26 and unmarried to receive the discount.

Know when to cut coverage. Don’t strip away coverage just for the sake of cheaper insurance. You’ll need full coverage car insurance to satisfy the terms of an auto loan, and you’ll want it as long as your car would be a financial burden to replace. But for older cars, you can drop comprehensive and collision coverage, which only pay out up to your car’s current value, minus the deductible.
