There are so many things you need to know that were not taught in school. One of the subjects you did not hear about in school is how to find good insurance at an affordable price.

1.) Shop smart. Most people just want the cheapest insurance they can find. Saving money seems like a good idea, at first, but when you have an accident and find out that your cheap insurance didn’t cover all of your needs, it winds up costing you more money. Price is a factor, but make sure you have good coverage as well.

2.) Look for discounts. Ask your agent about any discounts that are available. Paying in full is one way to save but if you can’t afford to do that, you can still save money by having your monthly payments drafted out of a checking account. Most companies charge more if they have to mail out a bill every month. Bundling insurance earns you a discount, too. Even if you don’t own a home, having a tenant’s policy with the same company lowers your auto insurance premium while providing much needed coverage.

3.) Fill in the gaps. An average policy will cover the basics, but you may have special items that need specific coverage. If you have a really nice piece of jewelry or if you are in a band and have lots of musical equipment make sure you mention that to your agent.

4.) Purchase life insurance. Life insurance is cheaper to buy when you are young and healthy than it is when you are older and have health issues. Having it with the same company as your auto and home or renter’s insurance gets you another discount.

5.) Talk to an independent agent. An independent insurance agent works with more than one insurance company so rather than trying to get you to fit the mold of one insurance company, he or she can fit the insurance to fill your needs.
