How to Save Money on Insurance for your Subaru Loyale
If comparing car insurance was easy, most of us would do it more often. But the reality is, you probably don't enjoy it and you think it costs too much. Finding affordable insurance for your Subaru Loyale is probably the same story.
Step One: Compare Multiple 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 Subaru Loyale 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 find affordable coverage for your Subaru Loyale, the first step is to click the link below and complete the short form.
Important! If you already have liability and physical damage coverage on your Loyale, it's important to keep the same limits and deductibles throughout the quote process. This allows you to fairly compare rates for many companies. If you use different limits and coverages for each quote, you won't be able to judge if the final rate is better or worse than other quotes.
Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper Loyale Insurance
After completing step one above, you can now learn some of the other ways to slash your Loyale insurance costs.
- If your Loyale ranks on the list of vehicles that are frequently stolen, that can result in a higher rating class and a more expensive rate.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- Safety features such as passive restraints and air bag systems help reduce injuries in and accident, and car insurance companies will charge lower rates if these features are present.
- 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.
- 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.
- Youthful or teen drivers that are rated on any vehicle will cost more. The inexperience and tendancy to enjoy going fast is a recipe for an accident.
- If you rent rather than own a home, you may be paying more for car insurance. Homeowners often get lower rates.
- 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.
- If you're not sure what your credit rating is, check it now. Car insurance companies use your credit score to determine the rates you pay, so the better your credit, the less you will pay.
- Consider using higher deductibles for physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. Higher deductibles save money since you're willing to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time.
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 Loyale 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 this is a new policy with only the Subaru 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.
