How to Get the Best Rates on Automobile Insurance in Georgia

In terms of car insurance rates, people living in Georgia can expect to pay more than people living in more than twenty other states. The good news is that they will also be paying less than a driver should expect to pay in many states, but regardless everyone living in Georgia who needs car insurance is still going to be looking for the best rate possible.

In order to seek out the lowest rate, a driver should know exactly what level of coverage they need before contacting even one car insurance agent. If you are prepared when talking to insurance agents you have a much better chance of getting a good rate. Decide if you are comfortable with just basic liability coverage or if you prefer having collision and comprehensive coverage in addition to uninsured motorist coverage.

An easy way to find a better rate is to investigate whether your already existent health insurance policy will provide coverage if you are injured in a car accident. If it will, you can waive that coverage and you’ll instantly enjoy a lower rate on your premiums.

Another method of saving money is to refuse the towing coverage that most car insurance policies offer as well as the rental car coverage. Auto club members will typically already have this coverage offered to them, so there’s really no need to double up on the coverage.

If you haven’t invested in a new vehicle yet and the one you drive now is more than a few years old, don’t purchase the collision and comprehensive coverage. In some cases the portion of your premium that is dedicated to that particular coverage amounts to as much as forty percent of what you are paying. Dropping it and pocketing that extra money may result in you being able to actually afford a newer vehicle sooner. Only do this if the value of the car you currently drive is low.
