Easily Lower your Saturn Relay Insurance Rates in Three Steps
If finding cheaper car insurance was fun, we'd make the time to do it regularly. But the reality is, you probably don't enjoy it and you think it costs too much. Cutting the check for each renewal on your Saturn Relay might give you the same feeling.
Step One: Compare Apples-to-Apples Quotes
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. Welcome to the 21st century!
You can compare insurance rates for a Saturn Relay simply and quickly just by filling out one form. This allows you to quote the same coverages with multiple companies and pick the lowest rate.

Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your Relay 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 Relay Insurance
There are many factors that actually determine what you will pay for insurance, and some are completely within your control.
- Insurance companies pay attention to which vehicles are stolen the most, so if your car is frequently targeted by thieves, chances are good you will pay more for insurance if you live in certain parts of the country.
- Being a senior citizen can qualify you for a small discount on your insurance rates. Older drivers are generally more cautious so they get a lower rate.
- Filing too many claims with your company can end up either costing you more for insurance or having your policy cancelled. Insurance companies don't like paying any more than you do, but they have the option of whether to keep you as a policyholder or not.
- Bundling your auto and home insurance with the same company can often get you a discount, and just being a homeowner in itself will get you a lower rate.
- The advancement of car safety features such as traction control, stability control, front and side-impact air bags and all-wheel drive all help keep insurance costs down.
- Letting your car insurance expire without having new coverage in place is called a "lapse" and will cause your next policy premiums to be higher.
- Speeding tickets and other violations can negatively impact your insurance rates for up to three years. Get too many tickets and you'll be shopping for a new car insurance company.
- If your teen driver has completed a driver's education class in school, check to see if your insurance company offers any discounts for this.
- Car insurance rates for a teen driver on a Saturn Relay will be expensive no matter what kind of coverage you have. But if you don't need comprehensive and collision, consider dropping those to save money.
- Good credit will get you lower car insurance rates. Evidence correlates good credit with low claims, so the better you maintain your credit level, the less risk you are to your company.
- Before a comprehensive or collision claim is paid by your company, you have to pay a deductible first. The more you're willing to pay, the lower your rates will be. Consider raising your deductibles to $500 or even $1,000.
Step Three: Finalize your Policy Details
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 Relay with.
It's critical that your new policy starts the same day that your old policy ends. If you are cancelling mid-term, make sure there is no lapse in coverage before your new policy kicks in.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Saturn off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. 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.
At the end of buying your policy, you will be able to print out a new proof-of-insurance card to place in your vehicle. This card is required by law and must be produced if requested by law enforcement. 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.
