What Decides Your Auto Insurance Premium and Why

Who decides how much you pay for auto insurance and why?Do you know how your auto insurance premium is determined? 

Of course, type of coverage and amount of coverage make a big difference in the amount you pay; but you might not be aware of the many other elements that insurers must consider in order to arrive at your premium.  The relative importance and weight of these elements will vary from insurer to insurer. Some but not all of the information factored in will be out of your control.  

You can probably see the need to consult with a trusted insurance agent before purchasing your Auto Insurance.  Ideally, this will be an agent who knows you and your circumstances.  This will give you the chance to ask questions and fully understand the process involved in determining how much you pay for car insurance.

But first, take a look at this infographic from the Insurance Information Institute to see the WHAT and WHY of factors that impact your auto insurance premium. 

If you already have Auto Insurance coverage, think about sitting down with your agent to review your coverage and determine whether you have the best policy for your needs at the best price available.
