Regrettably, a large majority of drivers in Arizona kept their coverage with the same insurance company for at least four years, and practically 40% of insurance customers have never compared rates from other carriers. Consumers in the United States can save approximately $860 each year by just shopping around, but they just don’t understand how easy it is to compare rates.
The preferred way to save on auto insurance rates is to start comparing rates regularly from companies who can sell car insurance in Tucson.
- Get a basic knowledge of how companies price auto insurance and the things you can change to lower rates. Many rating criteria that are responsible for high rates like traffic citations and a poor credit score can be controlled by making lifestyle changes or driving safer.
- Compare rates from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only give rate quotes from one company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agents can give you price quotes for many different companies.
- Compare the new rate quotes to your existing coverage and determine if there is any savings. If you find better rates, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.
The key aspect of shopping around is that you’ll want to make sure you compare similar coverage information on each quote and and to get prices from every company you can. This helps ensure a fair price comparison and maximum price selection.

Are you wasting money on full coverage?
There isn’t a written rule that works best for making the decision to drop comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s pretend your Volkswagen Touareg replacement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most you would receive is $5,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying more than $500 a year to have full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are some conditions where eliminating full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not buy liability only.
