What are some cheap car insurance options for a senior on a fixed income?
My father is the sole driver on his current car insurance policy. He can't afford to pay the usual $150 or $200 monthly insurance rate. How can he get cheap coverage?
Thanks for your question! There are a few companies that offer a pay-per-mile policy, so if your father is driving less often he can get really great discounts on his car insurance.
Another option would be to adjust his coverage. If he owns the car, he can take off collision coverage but keep comprehensive coverage, which would help bring down his payments.
Lastly, it’s always helpful to bundle your policies. If he owns his home, he can get a home insurance policy with the same company to get more savings. The same goes for renters insurance; sometimes it’s cheaper to add a renters policy than it is to have just auto insurance with a company.

What happens if I'm at fault in an accident with Utah's minimum car insurance limits?
"I have collision coverage in addition to the state minimums, but I'm not sure about the other driver. I know the damage to the other driver's car is above my property damage limit. How much will I have to pay out of pocket? Would it matter what coverage they have on their vehicle?"

Can you tell me how much liability insurance is too much?
I got a quote for $75 less per month and double the liability coverage (from 50/100/25 to 100/300/50). Is this too much coverage? Should I keep my old limits to make the policy even cheaper or get the higher coverage since I am already saving money?
