How are auto insurance rates determined?

Would saving a couple hundred dollars a year in car insurance premiums help you decide on which new car to buy? Whether your car is on the best-selling list or not, it’s more than just the car you drive. There are many factors to consider when calculating your rate. For example, where you live, where you drive, as well as any tickets or accidents on your record.

So before you go ahead and buy a new ride, it’s important to compare car insurance quotes first. Every person is different, so even if your neighbour drives the same vehicle as you, you may end up with a significantly different rate.

Compare and save on car insurance before making your final purchase decision.
