  2. Always consider discounts that may be available with insurance companies. Driver safety, low mileage or discounts for installing safety features onto vehicles may be available with some insurance companies.
  3. Consider the price of the excess you are willing to pay. The higher you opt for, your insurance can decrease. However, make sure that the price you choose is comfortable for you to pay in case of any accidents.
