Do you have any tips on how to get good, affordable car insurance for a college student who wants her own policy?
I'm a college student and I've moved out of my parents' place permanently. Now I need my own car insurance policy. How do I get good insurance that's reasonably priced?
Thanks for your question! For a younger college student who wants their own policy, I recommend getting an older car you can just carry liability on. It’s also important to maintain a clean driving record; practicing defensive driving will help with this. You may also qualify for student discounts.
