Choosing the Right Car Insurance

Choosing car insurance in Connecticut is an important decision and before you sign anything you want to be sure you have all the information you need to make sound decisions regarding your auto coverage. You can get car insurance anywhere but getting the right car insurance takes planning and research and here are a few tips to help get you started when choosing car insurance.

Required & Optional

The first thing you need to know as a driver is what insurance is required by law and what is optional. The state of Connecticut requires a certain amount of insurance be carried by the driver but that is only the minimum and there are many options for additional coverage that may apply to your unique driving needs. When you know what the minimum is you can then budget accordingly to find the right options to give you peace of mind when on the road.


Before you shop around for car insurance quotes, take a moment to figure out what is most important to you. You know what the minimum is but when deciding on optional coverage it requires a thorough assessment of your priorities, budget and the condition of your car. By combining your risks, needs and budget you can get a better picture of what it takes to provide for a safe driving experience and will allow you to choose the options that give you the coverage you want.

Discounts & Advantages

Every insurance carrier has discounts for safe driving and the more you know about these savings opportunities the more you can lower your car insurance costs. Many people overlook the fact they have never been in an accident or have never received a ticket but these clean records may entitle you to a significant discount with certain insurance carriers. Inquire with your insurance representative about your driving record and the discount programs offered to ensure you get the most out of your policy.
