Is there a specific time when car insurance is cheapest to buy?

I know dealerships have sale specials on cars at certain times of the year. Do insurance companies offer something similar for auto coverage?

“No, I’m afraid there are no sale specials for auto insurance on Presidents’ Day, the Fourth of July, or at any other time of the year. It’s actually illegal for insurance companies to sell discounted policies for buying at certain times.
If you want cheap car insurance, your best option is to shop around and gather quotes. Rates can vary significantly among insurance companies.
