Automobile insurance can be a costly proposition, especially in homes where there is more than one driver. In addition, teen drivers can drive these costs up even further. This can be especially challenging for those who are trying to save money for a home down payment - every dollar counts. This is when comparing auto insurance quotes can be very helpful.

Understanding how to compare

Always make sure that you are comparing comparable coverage. For example, one company may quote a payment of $250 a month and one $350 a month. However, close examination of the coverage provided may reveal some discrepancies in what is covered. Common variations in coverage include deductibles, liability limitations and coverage depending on who is driving the car. While the payment may be lower, the coverage may not be similar and if a problem occurs, it could cause an additional burden for the policyholder.

Compare quotes online

One of the best options for those who are interested in finding lower rates on their automobile insurance is the Internet. There are countless websites where drivers can compare rates for specific coverage options across many providers of insurance. Some of these quote systems are specific to a single insurer while others are far more broad.

Tools that are helpful

Online insurance quote tools can be very helpful if used correctly. Many of these tools allow consumers to input one set of data and receive information about policies offered by a number of providers. Tools that limit the consumer to one quote from a single provider may not be as effective in providing valid information; when comparison-shopping, a multi-provider quotation tool is far more effective.

Tool limitations

Before using any online tools to obtain an auto insurance quote for comparison purposes, read all of the information that is available about the tool. There may be specific caveats that apply to the individual tools. Be certain to review the information to find out if the rates that are quoted are based entirely on the auto insurance quote or if they require the insured hold multiple policies (e.g., homeowners, life, multi-auto, etc.) in order to obtain that rate. Some companies also do not accept policies in certain states.

When changing insurers

Before changing your auto insurance policy to save money for your down payment, make sure that you are really saving money. In some cases, there may be added fees for not paying the policy in full (e.g., using installment payments), higher out of pocket costs or other fees that may be hidden from immediate view.

Summary

Saving money for a home down payment is always a challenge regardless of your current circumstances. Those who are interested in saving money should always look at all of their expenses and see where they can cut back. Getting a number of auto insurance quotes using online tools can provide consumers with savings. However, if you do not know what your current car insurance covers before you start investigating; you may find that your insurance coverage is less than what you anticipated.
