How to Insure your Honda EV Plus on the Cheap
If buying auto insurance was as easy as it sounds on TV commercials, we'd have no problem getting the lowest rates. But the reality is, it's a chore for most people and we seem to always end up paying more than we want to. Finding affordable insurance for your Honda EV Plus is probably the same story.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rate Quotes
In years past, the only way to purchase car insurance was to visit the office of a local agent. Thanks to the internet, insurance shopping is a whole lot easier!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Honda EV Plus and you can compare their rates by entering your information only one time.
Compare rates now by clicking the link below. In just a few minutes you'll have a good idea of what insurance will cost for your Honda EV Plus.
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 EV Plus.
Step Two: How to Insure your EV Plus for Less
If you have completed step one above (if not, please complete that step first), then you are now ready to learn some ways to insure your EV Plus that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- Vehicle thefts drive up the cost of everyone's insurance, but if your EV Plus is on the list of the most frequently stolen cars, you might be paying just a little extra.
- Members of many professional organizations can receive discounts on car insurance, and if you're a senior citizen, that could earn you an additional discount.
- Claims that aren't much more than your deductible are better off just being paid out of pocket. If you get into a habit of filing smaller claims, you will pay for it in higher rates.
- Homeowners often see a break on their car insurance rates because there is a correlation between owning a home and being a responsible driver.
- Most Honda vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Allowing your insurance to lapse for any length of time will increase the cost of a new policy. Always keep coverage in force.
- Speeding not only costs you a fine, a single ticket will raise your car insurance rates for up to three years. Slow down and be a safe driver and you'll pay lower rates.
- Ask your insurance company if there is a discount for completing a driver's safety course. It may get you up to a 10% discount at your next renewal.
- Every parent dreads the day when their teenager gets added to their policy. If you are a teenager, or if you have one on your policy, expect to pay significantly more each year.
- 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.
- 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: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
Once you have compared identical rate quotes for your EV Plus and made a decision on deductibles, coverages and other policy options, you are ready to buy your policy with the new company.
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 already have a car insurance policy, then your Honda EV Plus will be covered as soon as your purchase it. If this is your first vehicle, you will want to make sure you have coverage in place as soon as your purchase it. If you have a current policy and you only carry liability coverage, then that's the only coverage that will automatically extend to your EV Plus. But if you currently carry full coverage, comprehensive and collision coverage will extend to your new vehicle.
After completing your policy purchase, you can print out the proof-of-insurance card to place in your car. Always keep the current card available in case requested by law enforcement or if you are in an accident. If your state requires you to file an SR-22 for being a high-risk driver, make sure your new company is aware of this requirement. Failure to comply can result in loss of your driver's license.
