What car insurance discounts are available after drivers turn 25?
I've heard that car insurance rates go down at age 25. As someone who's about to turn 25, what kind of reductions or discounts can I look forward to?

After age 25, drivers do usually see a drop in insurance premiums because carriers may provide the insured with good-driver discounts. They’re also offered lower rates because they’ve matured into an age group that’s perceived to be less risky.
You won’t, however, see an immediate drop in premiums right when you turn 25. You’ll usually need to wait until the renewal of your policy to see any changes in your car insurance rates.
Furthermore, if you really want to lower your premiums, it helps to maintain a clean driving record and shop around for the most affordable quotes. If, for example, you’ve got a DUI on your record or you’ve made a lot of claims, your premiums may not drop at all once you turn 25.

I recently switched home insurance companies. There was a hailstorm that caused some damage to my roof just before my new policy came into effect. Does this mean I need to make a claim with my old insurance company?

Can you lie about your age to get a car loan?
I'm 17 and I really want a car, but I'll have to get a loan to buy one. I tried to apply for a loan, but they told me I couldn't because I'm not 18. Are there any potential consequences for lying about your age on a loan application?

"Can a car insurance company deny a claim because their insured was driving a rental car? "
"I was in a collision with another driver who was using a rental car in New Jersey. They rear-ended me, so liability is not an issue. Their insurance is denying my claim because their insured was driving a rental car. Is this a valid reason for a denial? "
