With all the tech-savvy advances over the past ten years, the consumer market has created and designed entirely new products available for everyday use. Innovations like the cell phone and even the DVD player have revolutionized the way people think and shop. Companies are responding to this interest in online buying by offering consumers more and more options. “Technology is an extremely popular category and has a much more condensed life cycle, with new products and subcategories cropping up daily. Not only has the technology category expanded from flash drives to digital photo frames and computer accessories, technology has impacted other categories…. Writing instruments have become hybrids with the laser pointer, stylus, and even USB pens,” according to Lindsay Hoylman, marketing specialist of Leed’s, New Kensington, Pennsylvania.

We all need car insurance and with the costs rising yearly, we all can benefit from these tips. There are choices and opportunities for you. You just need to take a little time to educate yourself.

The first tip is to compare the many different companies out there today. Visit many websites. Prices will vary, and you can even compare several companies at one time by using online comparison shopping sites. Some companies will compare up to ten or more companies all at the same time.

Look at a company’s reputation to see how they rate amongst existing customers. Ask questions, read the latest reviews, and lastly look at the user’s 5-star ratings. Tech-savvy people are looking at all sorts of review services online in addition to reviews found on the company’s website. Plus, another online way to check the satisfaction of a company is through social media.

Find companies that offer discounts if you bundle services with them. This is a very quick and easy way to get the savings you need on your car insurance premiums. You might be surprised at the bundle packages they offer, and in the end, save some much-needed cash.
Check to see if there are separate discounts. There could be promotional discounts that you may qualify to receive. This is another easy way to save money on your monthly premium.

The latest and most tech-savvy way to save money is the trend in ‘Sat Nave’ technology or ‘GPS’ technology. It just requires the driver to install the ‘GPS’, gadget into the vehicle. It then tracks how the vehicle is driven. The device keeps track of your driving history and sends it to your insurance company. Presto, your saving without doing anything but plugging in the device and driving carefully.

Take advantage of discounts for ‘Alumni’ or ‘Professional Organization’ affiliations. There are many opportunities to get group plans you may not even be aware off. If you look into these groups, you may be surprised at how many discounts apply to your situation.

Low mileage discounts are another way to save money on car insurance. If your drive to work is short and you don’t spend a lot of time on the road, then look into the low mileage discounts.

Consider buying a used car instead of a new one. This can lower your monthly premium by up to 20 percent.
Maintain a good driving record, stay accident-free, and don’t get tickets.

All of these tech savvy suggestions are fast and convenient ways to help you save money on car insurance.
