Do auto insurance companies offer lower rates for loyal customers?
My policy is up for renewal and I'd like to increase my coverages. I'm getting a quote from another company for a lower rate, but would my insurance company match their rate since I've been a loyal customer?
“You’ll need to reach out to your car insurance company to find out whether they can offer you a similar rate. Insurance carriers don’t often offer loyalty discounts or automatic discounts, so you’ll need to talk to them directly.
If you want to increase your coverage and you’re receiving a lower rate with another company, you should consider switching. Since every company has different discounts and rating factors, you may not be able to get a lower rate with your current company.
It’s always recommended to shop around during your policy renewal period. As long as you maintain continuous insurance coverage, you won’t be penalized for switching companies for a better rate. “

What insurance do I need for a car that's only getting test drives?
I have a car I basically never drive, and I'm finally planning on selling it. It seems really stupid to pay premiums for a car I don't ever use. But at the same time, now that I'm planning to sell it, I know some interested buyers might want to test drive it. What kind of insurance should I have?

Can I put my auto insurance policy under my mom's name for a better rate?
I have been paying for my and my mother's insurance for the past five years. We decided to shop for a new auto policy. We noticed that if we put the policy under her name, the price goes down drastically. Can we just put it under her name? And why is it so much cheaper for her?
