Gather information about your cars and drivers

You can save time while getting a quick auto insurance quote by making sure you have all of the required information ahead of time. That includes specifics about your current auto insurance policy, if you have one, along with details about your vehicle, the people who will be driving the vehicle and information about any driving violations, accidents and prior claims.

Choose from a variety of discounts

Nationwide offers a variety of discounts on car insurance that may help lower your premium in a big way. Depending where you live, you might get a discount for insuring multiple vehicles (save up to 20%) or simply maintaining an accident-free record (save up to 10%). If your vehicle is equipped with an anti-theft device or passenger restraint system (such as full front-seat air bags), you may save even more.

Pick options that make your life easier – and save you money

Of course, a quick auto insurance policy doesn't mean cutting corners. If you like, you can load up your insurance package with great options designed to keep your costs low over time and help take care of you in case of an emergency. Our most popular, affordable upgrades include:

  • Roadside Assistance, which provides help with flat tires, jump-starts, towing and more
  • Accident Forgiveness, which means Nationwide will not raise your auto insurance rates following your first at-fault automobile accident
  • Vanishing Deductible® which allows you to take $100 off your deductible for every year of safe driving
