Auto Insurance Quotes and Determining the Cost
There are a number of things that could impact the cost of your car insurance, but here at SelectQuote we try to find the most affordable car insurance for you. Below are the four most common reasons car insurance rates differ.
Where You Live
The city and state in which you live can often play a role in your car insurance rates. For example, someone living in a rural town with less than 10,000 people will have a very different driving experience than someone living in L.A. Rates can be determined by the likelihood of claims based on others in your area and can take into consideration other factors such as crime and weather.
Statistically speaking, younger drivers have shown to be more easily distracted and have a higher chance of crashing, so they are considered risky to insure. The more years you have under your belt, the better your chance of a more affordable rate.
Your Credit Score
You shouldn’t be denied car insurance because of a low credit score, but you could benefit from discounts and better rates if your score is in good or great standing. The better your score, the better your chances of being deemed a “good credit risk,” meaning you’ve demonstrated your ability to pay bills on time, repay borrowed money and are less likely to need to file a claim.
Vehicle Type & Use
If data shows that drivers with your model vehicle have been in more accidents or filed more claims, there could be a chance your rates could be higher. Insurance companies also take into consideration the purchase price, cost of repairs, safety tests and why you’re driving your car. A vehicle used to commute to school or work will be in traffic more often than a car that will only be used once a week.
Your Driving Record & Claims History
Drivers with a clean driving history typically qualify for better rates and can be eligible for good or safe driver discounts. Insurers don’t just consider your record, though, they also take into account your claims history.
