Q: Can I list my son on my car insurance policy only during certain times?
Apr 20, 2021

My son is away at college and we are selling his vehicle. I would like to remove him from our policy, but the insurance company has said that we are required to list him as a household member. I do need him to still be covered during school breaks when he is home, so I don't want to exclude him. Is there a way to do this while saving money?

“You can reach out to your current carrier to find out if they have an option to list a driver as living away from the household with no vehicle. You could also see if they have an option for students. By adjusting the status of the driver, you may be able to save money on your car insurance while ensuring your son is still covered when at home.

Every carrier has different terms and conditions. If your insurance carrier doesn’t offer this type of status for a driver, you can reach out to other carriers in your area. They may be able to provide a lower premium without excluding someone from coverage when it’s needed. “

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
