Your car insurance is a fundamental part of your daily life if you usually drive, as it provides protection and financial security in the event of an accident, theft, or other unforeseen events. We share some tips to make the most of your insurance policy:

Understand it

First, the most fundamental thing is to read the clauses to know in detail what your policy includes and the liability limits. This way, you will be able to know in advance what to expect from your insurance company if you need it.

Maintain a good driving record

This helps you get a good rate on your insurance since you are more likely to get discounts if you don’t have any violations on your record.

Use of your vehicle

The amount to pay and even the coverage offered may vary depending on whether the use you give to your car is personal or work.

Several policies, one company

In most cases, if you have more than one policy, the insurance company can offer you a discount, either for having more than one car or even for having home insurance.

Keep your vehicle in good condition

Ensuring you perform regular maintenance on your vehicle helps it last longer and reduces the chances of accidents. Insurance companies very well regard this, since you have less chance of suffering an accident.


The deductible is the amount you must pay before the insurance kicks in in the event of a claim. The higher the deductible, the lower the premiums. But keep in mind that, in the event of an accident, you will have to shell out a more significant amount of money.

Additional coverage

Basic liability coverage is included in all insurance, but you can expand coverage for better protection.

Use resources from your insurer

Many companies offer additional resources and services, such as mobile applications for reporting accidents, roadside assistance, and reward programs for safe drivers to make the process easier.
