How can I get car insurance online?

My friend says they save a ton of money on their insurance by buying their policy online. I had no idea you could buy insurance online. How would I get it?

Your friend has the right idea! As almost everything is online now, car insurance companies have begun to adopt less traditional means of selling insurance. Luckily, it’s easy to get car insurance online!
Since you’re looking to save money, the first step is going to be shopping around. You’ll need to collect quotes from multiple companies. It’s usually recommended to request car insurance quotes from at least three different providers.
When requesting quotes, you’ll need to provide the following information:
  • Your name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Driver’s license number
  • VIN
  • Social Security number
Search online for top providers who allow you to request a quote through their website.
Since you haven’t purchased insurance online before, consider using Jerry. Jerry is a car insurance comparison app that gathers competitive rates from over 50 name-brand providers in minutes—for free. Jerry users save an average of $879 a year on car insurance.
After you find a policy you like, most companies will allow you to purchase your policy directly. All you’ll need to do is provide your payment method, decide whether you’ll be paying in full or monthly, and pay the down payment.
Congrats—you’ve officially purchased a policy online!
