How to pay for car insurance?

I'm about to graduate from college, and I’m going to need a car and car insurance for my new job. How can I easily pay for car insurance so I don’t lose coverage?

You’re smart to be thinking ahead to learn how to pay for your car insurance.
Car insurance payments are usually paid to your provider monthly. Most customers use an electronic funds transfer (EFT), linking your bank account to your provider and establishing a monthly automated payment plan. This can be done through their app or on your insurer’s website.
Other ways you can submit auto insurance payments include:
  • Personal Check
  • Cashier’s Check
  • Debit card
  • Credit Card (Check website)
  • Money Order (Check website)
  • Pay in person
  • PayPal (Progressive)
Contact your insurer or an agent for the proper billing information.
Keep in mind, your rates will likely be high because of your age. Insurers tend to charge young drivers more for car insurance because they are considered high risk. That doesn’t mean you can’t save money, however! Use the Jerry app’s auto insurance comparison tools are a great way to find the best rates.
After providing you with a comprehensive cross-analysis of the best policies across providers, Jerry will handle the phone calls, paperwork, and renewals for your top pick so that you don’t have to. So why do all that extra work when Jerry can do it better?
