Q: I recently relocated to San Diego, CA for work and was wondering if there was any way that I could get a discount on auto insurance in California? Coming from Pennsylvania, the premium increases really caught me off guard and I would really like to keep my costs down. Thanks.A: Thanks for your question, and congratulations on your new home in CA. While there are several ways to get discounts on your auto insurance in California, I am going to touch on one in this brief article.Most large insurance companies offer policy discounts to preferred customers, or customers who have multiple policies with them. Do you rent an apartment or are you a home owner? Adding a renters insurance policy or homeowners insurance to your auto coverage should get you a discount on your car insurance premiums.Now, this is not always the case so it is best to ask your agent or the company direct. However, most insurance providers will offer this type of discount.Hopefully this tip will help out when it comes to saving money on your auto insurance in California.Lastly, we encourage you to take a few minutes to compare car insurance quotes online from different companies. Comparison shopping is an extremely effective way to not only save money on coverage, but wind up with a higher quality policy as well. Many drivers skip over this all-important step when it comes to shopping for automotive coverage, and they end up overpaying for their policies as a result.
