As the parent or guardian of a young driver, you know it's essential to have good car insurance to protect them. Whether you're paying for it or they're working hard to foot the bill, it's a new expense for your family. Fortunately, you can find cheap car insurance for teens without breaking the bank. Here are the six ways to lower the cost of a young driver policy:
Students with higher grade point averages are usually more responsible and better drivers. If your young driver earns a B average or better at school, you may qualify for a good student discount on Nationwide teen car insurance.
You may save when you install an anti-theft device in the vehicle. Your possible discount varies based on the type of device installed and the state in which the vehicle is garaged.
Accidents happen to even the best young drivers. And if one does occur, insurance rates may rise as much as 30%. If you have Nationwide's Accident Forgiveness as part of your teen car insurance package, your rates will not increase following the first at-fault automobile accident.
When your teen successfully completes an approved motor vehicle accident prevention course, this Nationwide discount may help you get affordable car insurance.
With Nationwide, there are lots of ways to protect your teen while staying within your budget. For example, a higher auto insurance deductible may lower the rate, but could mean more out-of-pocket expenses after an accident. If the vehicle is older or has very high mileage, liability coverage may be a better option than collision or comprehensive – though it will not cover damages to the car after an at-fault accident. Getting the right coverage that best fits your needs is important for saving money on your teen auto policy. Learn more about Nationwide’s auto insurance coverage types today.
