3) Shop around and get multiple FREE ONLINE auto insurance quotes. The more auto
insurance quotes you get, the better your chance of saving money! Even if you're paid up for the next year, you can
cancel your old auto insurance policy and your balance will be pro-rated and returned to you. Of course you only
want to do that AFTER you've replaced it with something better and less expensive!
4) If you have a business and a teenage driver...have your teenager drive the company car. Check with your
insurance company, but most don't charge more for teenage drivers.
