Step-by-step Guide to Cheaper Saturn SWP Insurance
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. Finding affordable insurance for your Saturn SWP is probably the same story.
Step One: Compare Rates

Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your SWP 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: How to Lower your SWP 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 SWP insurance rates.
- If you car makes the top ten list of most stolen cars, you might be paying a little extra to insure it.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- Equipping your Saturn with available safety features such as air bags and passive restraints allows you to take advantage of additional discounts.
- 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.
- 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.
- Allowing your insurance to lapse for any length of time will increase the cost of a new policy. Always keep coverage in force.
- Car insurance rates for a teen driver on a Saturn SWP 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.
- Renters will find they may be paying more for insurance as compared to homeowners. Owning a home can often get you a small discount on your car insurance.
- 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.
- Do you keep your credit rating in good shape? If you do, you will get a better rate than if you let your credit score slide. Check your credit score regularly to make sure there are few blemishes on your record.
- 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 Car Insurance Policy
Choosing a new car insurance company is not easy. But hopefully you have a handful of quotes for your SWP 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.
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.
Any time you buy a new vehicle, make sure you have car insurance in place, either from an existing policy or a new policy that you purchase from the dealership floor. Be sure to have a new policy ready to go if you are buying a new SWP. If you've never had car insurance or don't have a policy now, you won't have any protection on the vehicle until you add it to 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. An SR-22 filing may be required by your state's DMV if you've been convicted of a serious driving offense such as DUI, DWI or reckless driving. If this applies to you, make sure the car insurance company complies with the SR-22 requirement.
