The biggest reason for differences in insurance rates is the risk. A driver who is a bad risk, that is, someone who has had a lot of accidents and tends to get speeding tickets is considered a higher risk for an insurance company than a driver who has a good driving record. Insurance rates for young drivers are always higher than for experienced drivers because it has been shown that young drivers have more accidents. Some companies, however, offer discounts to young people if they are good students, since statistics show that good students are at a lower risk of accidents.

Which insurance company you are dealing with will also affect the insurance rate. If you are a customer who has a number of insurance policies with the same company, for example your homeowners insurance and your business insurance, you will probably get a discount on your auto insurance. Some companies will look at the credit score of an applicant and be able to offer a lower premium if they have a good credit score. Besides these factors, there is the simple fact that some insurance companies are more expensive than others. Perhaps their overhead is higher, but they boast better service.

Whatever the reasons for different rates, the only way you will be sure to get the best rate is to shop around. Even with all of the factors the same, you may still be able to find a company that offers significantly lower rates than others. You can save a lot of money if you do.
