Drive less to reduce car insurance quotes

Aussies hoping to reduce the amount spent on their car insurance may want to consider reducing the amount of time they spend on the road.

Driving less could cut car insurance

Insurers may be more likely to give a lower quote to those who do not drive their vehicles as far or as often, because there is a smaller chance that they will be involved in an accident and need to claim.

People who are counting the pennies and are concerned about the price of cover for their automobile may want to consider cycling or walking short distances or using public transport for their everyday commutes into work.

Those who take this step as well as going online to compare car insurance quotes may reduce the amount they spend on fuel, which could result in additional savings.

Eco-conscious motorists will also benefit from doing this, because their carbon footprint will be smaller.

A spokesperson for AAMI recently told News Limited newspapers that Aussies trying to compare car insurance quotes should ensure they read the details of the policy carefully to ensure it gives them the necessary cover.
