Easy Guide to Cheaper Dodge Omni Insurance Rates
If finding affordable car insurance was easy, most of us would take the time to do it. But the reality is, you probably don't enjoy it and you think it costs too much. Finding affordable insurance for your Dodge Omni is probably the same story.
Step One: Shop Around
Up until just recently, the only option you had for shopping for insurance was getting a high pressure sales pitch in the office of your local insurance agent. Not anymore!
The first step to finding lower Dodge Omni rates is to get quotes from all the major car insurance companies. This is fast and easy and only requires you to complete one form.
To find affordable coverage for your Dodge Omni, the first step is to click the link below and complete the short form.
Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your Omni is to use identical coverage limits on all the quotes. If you use different liability limits and/or deductibles, you won't have an apples-to-apples rate comparison.
Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper Omni Insurance
After step one is complete, it's now time to analyze some of the other factors that can negatively impact car insurance rates for a Omni.
- If you are a senior citizen or belong to a particular professional organization, you may qualify for a break on insurance.
- A deductible is the amount you pay before your company pays a comprehensive or collision claim. If you increase your deductibles, you will pay less for these coverages.
- 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.
- Most of us have received a ticket at one time or another. If you get a ticket for a minor violation, find out if there is a safe driving class you can take to keep the ticket off your driving record.
- Most Dodge vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Filing small claims will get you into hot water with your insurance company. Frequent filers will often find themselves either paying higher rates or non-renewed at renewal time.
- Vehicles that tend to get stolen or have high repair costs will cost you more to insure. If your Omni falls into either category, it could cost you.
- Each year make a habit of checking your credit score. If you find problems that may be dragging down your credit rating, address them immediately. This will result in significant savings on car insurance.
- Having recently completed a class in driver's safety could earn you a discount of 5% to 10%. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer that credit.
- Never allow one policy to expire without having a new policy effective the same date. This causes a lapse in coverage and if you don't have insurance for any length of time, your next policy will cost you more.
- Being a homeowner can often get you a little discount on your auto insurance. Insuring you home with the same company as your autos can often get you even deeper discounts.
Step Three: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
Now that you hopefully have several rates to compare and have made any changes needed to your individual coverages, you can choose the best company to insure your Omni with.
An important thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you want the effective date of the new policy to be the exact same as the date you are cancelling your old policy.
If you are adding a vehicle to an existing policy and not buying a new one, just make sure to get the vehicle added as soon as possible. Every insurance company offers a grace period to add new vehicles, so make sure you get the Dodge added prior to the expiration of this grace period. Anytime you buy a vehicle, you want to make sure coverage is in place before driving off the lot. If you have a policy now, you will have at least liability coverage. But if you don't insure any vehicles with full coverage, then you will put your new Omni at risk as soon as you drive away.
Upon completion of buying your policy, you need to print out the financial responsibility card that must be kept in your vehicle at all times. Replace any old cards and promptly replace expired cards. SR-22 filings are for high risk drivers and ensure that you have met your state's financial responsibility requirements. If you have DUI, DWI or uninsured accident convictions, you may have to file an SR-22 with your state DMV.
