- Careless drivers spend more on insurance. At-fault accidents raise insurance rates, as much as $2,294 per year for a 20-year-old driver and even as much as $498 per year for a 60-year-old driver.
- Raising physical damage deductibles lowers costs. Jacking up your deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $248 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $478 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Low physical damage deductibles may be wasting money. Decreasing your policy deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $256 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $502 per year for a 20-year-old driver.

- High-risk insurance is expensive. For a 20-year-old driver, having too many accidents or violations can potentially increase rates by $2,530 or more per year. That’s some serious coin. In latte-speak, that’s the equivalent of just under 400 lattes that you’ll have to spend just because you’re careless behind the wheel.
- Good credit can save money. Having a high credit rating of over 800 could see savings of $260 per year over a credit rating of 670-739. Conversely, a lesser credit rating could cost around $301 more per year.

It just makes sense that being a good driver will save you the most money. Not getting into accidents and keeping your driving record clean is going to save you a lot of money on car insurance.
But even if you have an accident or a couple of speeding tickets, don’t sweat it. There are plenty of other ways to cut your premiums.
If you own a home, or even have a renter or condo insurance policy, you should be able to qualify for a bundling discount.
Just about every car insurance company has an e-pay or autopay feature that saves time when paying your bill. Plus, it saves the cost of a postage stamp!
Usage-based discounts are earned by allowing the insurance company to track your driving habits through an electronic monitoring device that plugs into your car. It tracks things like how hard you stop, miles driven, sudden lane changes, and things of that nature.
Safe drivers should be able to save money on most usage-based programs. However, there is a chance that your rates could actually increase, so keep that in mind when considering one of these programs.
To see if your current company has discounts that you may not be taking advantage of, simply talk to your agent or a customer service representative and have them run through all possible discounts. It only takes a few minutes and it could end up reducing your premium by a pretty good amount.
