How do you reduce car insurance costs?

I’m moving to Alaska. I’m a little bit worried about driving in the ice and snow. How can I get insurance coverage that protects me without breaking the bank?

Answer
One of the best ways to find cheaper car insurance is to compare quotes from multiple providers. This may sound like a long and frustrating process, but don’t worry—comparison shopping has never been easier.
Just use the Jerry app. Jerry pulls quotes from the top 50 companies in under a minute and delivers the best deals right to your phone. You’ll be able to tell the app what kind of coverage you want and compare prices to get the best deal.
You can lower costs with any insurer by applying for discounts. Common discounts include:
  • Good Driver Discount
  • Defensive Driver Discount
  • Anti-theft Discount
  • Bundling Discount
  • E-billing Discount
  • Paid in Full Discount
Some factors to keep in mind when choosing insurance coverage in Alaska include:
  • Landslides
  • Mountain roads
  • Many uninsured drivers
  • Snow and severe winter weather
That said, a good policy for you would include comprehensive coverage and roadside assistance. Jerry partners with Urgently to provide you with industry-leading roadside assistance, including benefits like towing, lockout service, and a mechanics hotline.
