Don't make price the only factor when you're shopping. Compare the type of coverage you get for the price so you can choose the best insurance for your needs and your wallet.
1. Gather information you’ll need
Gather basic information about yourself, your car and any other drivers you want to include on your policy, including:
- Social Security number
- Driver's license number
- Driving distance to work
- Vehicle's make, model, year and vehicle identification number (usually found on the dashboard near the windshield)
- Prior driving violations or insurance claims you’ve had in the past five years
- Copy of the declaration page from your current policy (if you have one)
2. Look for the right coverage options
The car you drive and the way you use it have a big impact on the coverages you need. We let you customize coverage that's right for your needs and budget. The right policy can cover you in worst-case scenarios and help you pay for medical expenses, loss of income and other situations. The more choices you have, the better.
3. Look for flexible payment options
In today's economy, we know money can be tight. At Nationwide, you can choose whether you want to pay monthly, quarterly or semi-annually. You also can choose to pay by check, debit or credit card, through the mail, online or over the phone.
4. Find opportunities to save
Look for discounts that lower your price as you compare car insurance rates online. At Nationwide, we offer discounts for multiple cars, anti-theft devices, good students and membership in a partner organization.
5. Compare claims services
You never know when an accident will happen. That's why our On Your Side® Claims Service is a standard part of our policies. Enjoy worry-free claims and a written guarantee on your repairs for as long as you own or lease your car when you use an On Your Side Auto Repair Network®*.
6. Look for a company that meets your changing needs
Home improvements? Any major purchases? A lot can happen in a year.
When your life changes, your insurance needs may change as well. An On Your Side® Review is a free review we offer every year to make sure your insurance is keeping up with your life. We also want to make sure you’re taking advantage of the many benefits we offer, including discounts.
7. Look for a company that cares about the community
We give back to the communities where our members, associates and agents work and live. From volunteering at local food banks to donating money through the United Way, Nationwide embeds philanthropy, workplace giving and volunteerism into our culture.
8. Read customer reviews
One of the best ways to learn the truth about an insurance company is to read customer reviews.
