Various Car Insurance Options Available For Young Drivers

Most insurance companies tread carefully when it comes to providing cheap car insurance for young drivers. The rates are usually higher considering the risks associated with a 17 or 18 year old driving for the first time and the safety of many individuals have to be considered. Also it is widely known that young drivers are highly risk prone and susceptible to accidents.
In order to avoid high premiums associated with these policies, be wise and go through a number of quotes before purchasing any insurance. There are options such as flexible coverage which contain provisions for modifications in premium later on. Policy holders can go in for a lower coverage and further build up on it when they can afford more.
The best way to assess your insurance needs is to contact an insurance agent, especially one who deals with young drivers insurance and follow his advice to lessen the premium and overall cost of car insurance.
Fact is that there are some insurance companies out there who are ready to provide cheap car insurance for drivers considering all the risks present. You need to take time and find them.
Two teenage drivers maybe offered different rates by the same insurance company for simple reasons of their cars being different or one of them has a driving experience of less than 3 years.
Drivers can take advantage of discounts in premiums available for short distance commute to school or work, good grades in school etc. Some teenagers may have undergone a safe or defensive driving course which also entitles them to a discount.
Rule out unnecessary ‘collision’ coverage in case your vehicle is an old and battered type. Monthly withdrawal of premium amounts from your account ensures less billing expenses. You could also consider paying premiums in advance like for a year or six months, again to reduce billing fees.
Some teenage drivers get their cars insured along with their parent’s car insurance to take advantage of multi car discounts. But the feasibility of doing so should be checked out with the parent’s agent and a comparison should be made with the option of the young driver going in for a ‘solo’ policy.…

Auto Repair Warranty Offers Many Different Options

If you’ve been researching warranties online, you might think you have a handle on the auto repair warranty. It is pretty simple, right? If something breaks, the warranty will cover the cost to repair or replace it.
But there’s a problem with that statement. Not everything that breaks is covered in every situation.
There are two types of parts failures, as far as your warranty is concerned. A part either fails because of a mechanical breakdown, or it fails because of accumulated wear and tear. And in most warranties, there is a world of difference between the two situations.
If there is a failure in a part because of a fault that was introduced in the production or assembly stages, that will be repaired under most warranties. But what if the part was perfectly fine when it came out of the factory, and there were no problems with its installation? Why would a part break otherwise?
The older your car gets, the more likely it is that a part will fair due to repetitive use, or “wear and tear”. Think of it like you would a pair of sneakers. If the sole rips off the first time you go for a run, you will likely be able to return them for a full refund. If the stitching comes undone after a week, it won’t be your fault. But if you run and run and run, and eventually, the heel wears down to the point that it cracks, you certainly wouldn’t be able to return them for a refund. The same principle applies to your car. The longer you own your car, and the more mileage you put on it, the more likely it is that a part failure will be due to “wear and tear”.
So what? Won’t the warranty cover wear and tear damage? It is impossible to speak for every warranty out there, but many of them, the answer is no. And of course, if it is not covered, you might find yourself having to argue with the warranty provider about what constitutes “wear and tear”. This is why you will want to read the fine print of a prospective new auto repair warranty before you sign it. A “mechanical breakdown only” warranty will likely cost a lot less, but the older the car, the more likely that your part failure will simply be written off as “wear and tear”, and the costs for repair or replacement will fall squarely on your shoulders.…
