In the current situation of inflation, saving a few euros on this insurance can be of great help. For this reason, pay attention to the 7 essential factors to analyze in order to have cheaper car insurance.
Cancel the insurance
It may seem like a too radical measure, but it is one of the most effective when negotiating with insurance.

Check your history
If you have many tickets , especially if they are for speeding, or have given many reports in the past, your insurance price will not be cheap. For this reason, you must try to be the best driver, for this and logically, not to suffer any accident that could put your life at risk. Insurance is there to cover you in case of an accident, but it is better if you are not forced to give several parts.
Analyze the policy carefully
The coverage offered by the policy should never be greater than what we need. Experts advise the following: up to the third year, insurance without excess. Between the third and fifth year, insurance with excess. As of these years, the coverage must decrease, reaching ten years of seniority, when it is advisable to pay only third-party coverage with window and fire and theft insurance.
Do you need other insurance?
If you need home insurance, for example, it may be interesting for you to contract everything with the same company so that they can give you a price. Of course, you should analyze if it pays for you, but normally the company will give you a better price if they have contracted different insurances with it.

Check if they give you a discount for paying everything at once, and if they penalize you for doing it in installments. With all the information in hand, decide what to do, although if you have the possibility of paying everything at once, it is usually the best option.
