In these trying economic times, people are growing increasingly concerned with the amount of money they're spending, and they're looking for ways to saving. If you (and/or your car) meet certain requirements, you may qualify for auto insurance discounts. Some insurance providers offer rate options that can reduce your premiums significantly.
If you drive a low risk car-such as a hybrid-you may have discount options, as most hybrids have a low claim level. It also helps if you live in an area with low traffic density, with reduces the possibility that you will get into an accident. Applicants with good credit are often able to find discounts, as insurance companies consider financial stability to be a risk deterrent.
Older drivers are usually considered to be less risky than the younger ones (especially teenagers), so you may be able to find the senior rate if you are over the age of 55. Policy holders may also be able to qualify for discounts if they drive a low mileage vehicle equipped with modern safety features such as airbags and antilock brakes. Do an online search to determine which discounts you are eligible to receive.
