When it comes to the optional types of Australian auto insurance coverage, you can do much better than a couple of dollars in savings. Here are some tips to get the lowest premiums:
- Don't get more insurance than you need.
If you have an older vehicle, consider skipping the comprehensive
coverage. Unless you get a policy with an "agreed value" you will only
get the actual market value if it comes down to a claim. If your car
isn't worth much, you may just want to assume the risk yourself.
- Get the highest Excess possible.
You can save a lot on your premium rate if you opt for a higher
excess. The excess is the amount you will have to pay if you make a
claim. It is sometimes referred to as a "deductible." If you do take
this option, it is a good idea to set aside the amount of your excess in
savings so that you will have it, "just in case."
- Insure named drivers only.
If you are sure you won't be loaning your car out for any reason, ask
for coverage for named drivers only. Some companies will offer you a
discount in your rates if you limit the covered drivers.
- Get all your insurance from one company.
If you have home and contents insurance, life insurance, or any other
type of insurance coverage, try to move it all to one company. This
will make you eligible for multiple policy discounts.
- Get multiple quotes and compare prices.
You can use the internet to get a number of online quotes and do a
comparison to find the best one. If you'd prefer to talk to a "real"
person, just ring to finalize the deal. However, most companies offer
another discount if you buy your policy online. :-)
