Lifestyle changes in the past year could affect your current auto insurance coverage. Changes like marriage, divorce, retirement, and achieving senior status can affect your auto insurance cost or coverage. By discussing lifestyle changes with your Giles & Iten Insurance agent in Surprise, AZ, you’ll have a better idea of what steps to take to maintain the auto insurance protection you need in Arizona and California. Here are a few lifestyle changes that could alter your insurance coverage.
After getting married, you may decide to add your new spouse to your auto insurance policy. A multiple-driver policy can save you money on your insurance costs. If marriage adds teen drivers to your household, you can add them to your policy as well. Having your teen drivers complete a driver’s safety course can reduce your insurance costs.
If you get divorced, you may need to take a spouse off of your auto insurance, which may alter your auto insurance costs. If you’re currently bundling home and auto, a divorce could change your policy altogether, which will affect your auto insurance costs.
Retirement could lower your auto insurance costs as you’ll no longer be driving to and from work, reducing your risk of accidents. If you plan to travel extensively by car after retirement, however, i.e., taking vacation road trips, you may want to increase your coverage to ensure you have sufficient protection on the road. This, of course, will prompt an increase in your premium.
Seniors often qualify for auto insurance discounts, especially if they have good driving records. If you’ve achieved senior status, talk to your Giles & Iten agent about discounted rates on your policy.
