The Unica website has some tips for auto insurance consumers that want to save money on their premiums. Unica’s first suggestion is that you practice safe driving. This is the most obvious way to save money on your insurance but it is also one that a lot of people neglect when they’re out on the road. Slow down and keep a clean driving record and you’ll be amazed at how your premiums will go down. Another suggestion they make is to consider increasing your deductible. You will have to pay more if you need to make a claim but you will save money upfront. It can be tricky to decide on a deductible amount because you also don’t want to have to pay a lot of money if you do need to make a claim. Weigh out your options and decide from there. Another good way to save money with Unica Insurance is to bundle your coverage. If you insure your home and car then you can save money; the same is true if you need to insure more than one vehicle. The last tip that is mentioned on the Unica website is that you should speak to a licensed insurance broker and see if they can find other ways to reduce your premiums, without losing the coverage that you require.
