There is a large difference in insurance prices between companies and policies.

Ditch the towing coverage on your auto insurance, especially if you don't drive much. The average cost to have your vehicle towed is about $100, but you will pay well over that amount after many months of tow coverage. Besides, some policies cover towing if you get in an accident. You are not very likely to use your additional towing clause. Small claims should not be filed, even if the incident is covered. Even though you will get reimbursed for the damage, your premiums could rise to a point that would cost more than paying out of pocket for the damage. There are also many insurers that offer customers discounts and rewards based on the number of years they have spent without filing a claim. Save your insurance coverage for true emergencies. Increasing your deductible can decrease premiums; however, it usually has a catch.

Too often, people will settle for what they have, even when they are getting a terrible deal from their provider. When you are purchasing a product that could differ in price by hundreds of dollars, it is definitely worth your time to shop around to get the best price.
