Coverage for your car is subject to its characteristics and its particular use and time spent on public roads, garage location or place where it usually circulates.

3. Pay attention to the benefits of the policy.

When choosing options that best suit your needs, it is very important that you consider the cost to benefit ratio, the more your insurance covers, the more expensive it will be.

4. Clear conditions and renewal date.

It is very important that you know if the policy term is for 12 months, month to month, 3 months or 6 month. The term matters because coverage is governed by a precise and strict calendar. So if you want to cancel it, change it or renew it, you must do it within the corresponding time period.

5. If you have other insurance policies such as home insurance, it is advisable to get your car insurance with the same insurance carrier. Generally, having your car insurance and another type of policy with the same carrier, will save you some money.
