Three Easy Steps to Lower Chrysler Voyager Insurance Rates
If shopping for auto insurance was more enjoyable, it would get done more often. But most likely we pay more than we want to and don't really enjoy the buying process. You might feel the same pain when having to pay the bill on your Chrysler Voyager.
Step One: Compare Rates
Up until about ten years ago, the only way to shop for car insurance was in the office of a local insurance agent where you'd get a hard sell into a policy. Times have changed!
Comparing apples-to-apples price quotes for your Chrysler Voyager is made easy by only requiring one form to be completed. This will shop your coverage with multiple companies and allow you to easily compare rates.
To start saving, have your current policy handy and click the link below. Our short form makes it easy to enter your information and compare rates.
Read this (it's important)! When doing any car insurance quote to compare rates to either your existing policy or to other quotes, it's important to use identical coverages on all quotes. Otherwise you will not be able to accurately determine which company has the lowest rate for your Voyager.
Step Two: How to Lower your Voyager Insurance Premium
Now that you have several rates to compare (since you did compare rates above, right?), we will now show you some additional ways you can lower your Voyager insurance rates.
- If you have a high credit score, you will be rewarded with lower insurance rates. Conversely, if your credit rating is on the low site, your rates will be higher.
- A single speeding ticket can cost you several hundreds of dollars over the next three years thanks to increased car insurance rates. Slow down and drive safely.
- Most insurance companies will give you a discount on your car insurance if you also own a home. Some go even farther and give you discounts if you package your homeowners and auto insurance with them.
- Teenage drivers can be very expensive to insure on newer vehicles will full coverage. You may be better off purchasing an older vehicle for your teenager and only insure it for liability.
- If you have a period where you don't have any insurance coverage, that's called a lapse. The longer the lapse, the more you'll pay to reinstate coverage.
- To keep your rates low, don't file excessive claims on your policy. Insurance is meant to cover large losses, not small damage that you can pay for out-of-pocket.
- Many insurance companies will give you a small discount if you've recently completed a driver's training course.
- Safety features such as antilock brakes, traction control and air bag systems all help reduce the cost of car insurance by keeping the passengers safer.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- Particular years and models of cars tend to be frequently stolen, and if your Voyager is on that list, chances are your insurance company knows it and will ding you a little extra because of it.
- Comprehensive and collision coverages make up the majority of your car insurance bill. If you raise your deductibles, you can will see significant savings with every policy renewal.
Step Three: Choose the Right Company for You
Choosing a new car insurance company is not easy. But hopefully you have a handful of quotes for your Voyager that will give you a good idea of how much it will cost, as well as some idea of any coverage changes you may want to make.
Car insurance policies don't have to be cancelled at the renewal date, but just be sure the new policy starts the same day you cancel your old policy. This avoids any gaps in coverage between policies.
If this is a new policy with only the Chrysler on it, be sure to have coverage before leaving the dealership or car lot. If you're adding it to an existing policy, you have anywhere from 15 to 30 days depending on the company. When driving off the lot, you may have coverage that extends from your current policy. But it will only be equal to the most coverage you have on any vehicle. So if you only carry liability coverage, you won't be covered for full coverage until you specify it on your policy.
Once you finish buying your new policy, you will need to print out the proof-of-insurance card that is provided by your new company. This card is proof that you meet the state's minimum liability limits and is required to be kept in your vehicle. High risk drivers may be required to submit an SR-22 with their state DMV's. If you have been convicted of reckless driving, DUI or had an uninsured accident, you may qualify. Make sure your new policy reflects the need for the SR-22 filing.
