10 driving mistakes which will INSTANTLY invalidate your insurance

1. Not Shopping Around

Insurance buying is a lot like car buying. You have to shop around to find the best deal. One insurance agent may be able to get you free quotes from several companies, or you can be your own advocate and research different companies and policies online.

You want to start shopping well before you need to buy insurance so that you don’t have to choose a policy just because there isn’t time to research all of the options that may be available. In some states, you can’t leave the dealership with a new car unless you can show that you have car insurance. Most lenders require that you have insurance on any vehicle that they have loaned money on.
