Why car insurance is so important

Not only is car insurance required by law, it also provides financial security in the event of an accident or theft. If something were to happen to your vehicle, you simply pay your deductible to your car insurance provider and they take care of the rest.

How to get the best rate

  • Get your credit in order. Certain states will take into account your credit score when writing up an auto insurance quote. Those with better credit will receive better and more affordable policies. It pays to have good credit. Allow your excellent credit score to save you money on auto insurance.
  • Go with a high-deductible plan. If your deductible is high, your monthly payment will be low. Use this with caution, though, because if you ever need to use your insurance policy you'll have to come up with a large amount of money upfront.
  • Comparison shop auto insurance companies. And finally, the best way to save on your auto insurance is to comparison shop different carriers. At LendingTree, we do the work for you, allowing you to sit back and watch competitive offers roll in.
