“There are quite a few companies that offer lower rates for college students. Discounts vary from carrier to carrier, but insurers often offer a good student discount or discounts for being a part of student organizations. If you aren’t going to be driving your vehicle very far, many carriers also offer a low mileage discount.
Although age does have a significant impact on your rate, having a clean driving record can help reduce your premium.
The best thing to do is shop around. Get quotes from major carriers like State Farm and Liberty Mutual, as well as smaller regional carriers.
