Q: How can I budget to reach my car insurance goal?
Apr 21, 2021

I want to get off monthly payments and know paying in full is a better deal. How can I set up a budget for this?

“You’re right: most car insurance carriers offer a discount for paying your premium in full.

To budget for this, figure out how many months are left before your policy renews and divide that number by your total policy premium. For example, if your policy renewal is in four months and your renewal price is $800, you’ll need to save an extra $200 every month ($800÷4).

To budget for your future policy terms, do the same thing. For example, if your policy still renews for $800, but your next term is 10 months away, you’ll only need to save an extra $80 every month.

Be aware that carriers do have the right to re-rate your policy at every renewal.Your rate may fluctuate and your savings may be less or more than the final amount you will owe. “

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!
