Did you know that between 65 and 70 percent of the estimated 12 million vehicles on South African roads are uninsured, the AA claims.
Everyone knows how important car insurance is; however, forking out a few extra bucks every month is something that will probably leave you feeling blue.
Car insurance does not necessarily have to leave a hole in your pocket, but if you feel it is, then the term ‘save money’ should be as appealing to you as a bowl of steaming hot chocolate on a chilly winter morning.
There is a way that you can save, especially if you follow these important tips:
Do your research
Spend time browsing the net for the best car insurance quotes and read through each provider’s ‘frequently asked questions’ category. You do not want to find yourself settling for the first quote you see and then find a better deal afterwards.
Manage your funds
Maintaining a good credit record may also help you pay less on car insurance, so it is important to manage your accounts and debt carefully to avoid a negative credit score in future.
Ask about discounts
Insurance companies may offer a variety of benefits which includes discounts. Certain companies may offer discounts for drivers with cars that have certain safety features or even those drivers who have a good driving history with few or no accidents. Or pool your car and home insurance together.
Be a good driver
This does not mean hooting at other cars during traffic, but following the rules of the road and driving cautiously. Not only is this good for your sanity, but it also saves you from a potential insurance premium rate increase due to accidents caused by negligent driving.
