Can I save money on insurance by choosing a specific payment option?

This is the first time I've had to pay for my own insurance. It's already really expensive and I'd like to save as much money as I can. Is there a payment option that will save me money?

“Purchasing car insurance for the first time can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to save money. If you’d like to see the most savings on a policy, look for discounts and pay in full.
Paying in full can be a lot of money at once, so if you can’t afford to pay in full, don’t feel ashamed. Monthly payments are always a viable option to keep you legal. If you have to pay monthly, one hack is to use your bank account to pay (ETF) instead of a debit card or credit card, which insurance companies charge fees to use.
A foolproof way to always save money on car insurance is to consistently shop around. If you want cheap car insurance quotes fast, go to Jerry. As a licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the free Jerry app gathers affordable quotes and helps you purchase insurance.”
