How should I adjust my auto coverage to save money with Progressive?
I have had Progressive insurance for nine years and never had a claim or service issue. I have had a change in circumstances and need to cut costs. Should I reduce my coverage or increase my deductibles to save money on my two cars?

“While reducing your insurance coverage may save you some money, be aware that you would be increasing your risk in order to pay less.
If one or both vehicles are paid off and have depreciated in value, you could consider removing the more expensive collision coverage and reducing the comprehensive coverage deductible. This would probably deliver the greatest savings, albeit not without risk.
Although you have had your Progressive insurance policy for a long time and are satisfied with it, it still makes sense to shop around for coverage, especially considering your recent change in circumstances. You may find that you can get equal or greater coverage with significant savings.

My car was totaled and my insurance company recommended that I keep my insurance until I find a new car. My life has changed significantly and I now drive a car on my dad's insurance policy. I'm still paying for my own insurance policy a year later. Can I cancel this policy or am I required to keep it?
