Next fun part (not!) of new car ownership is insurance. I have 30 days coverage from the old (also out of state) policy so I have to get cracking. Insurance rates are brutal in CA. So I will take the senior driving course for the discount available. Anybody got any idea what the discount might be?
Have very good driving record, excellent credit, too old and a shady zip code. All part of the equation. So far State Farm is over the roof. Existing company, Farmers, not much better. Esurance (Allstate) didn't earn the friend's good seal of approval, though the rate was lower. Tried Costco (IDS Insurance) best rate so far, but not by a lot. Will check AARP when I do the course. I see those teaser ads about 'the things your insurance company doesn't want you know'. Anybody ever look into that?
Any suggestions? I am comparing apples with apples in terms of coverage and deductibles.
Best company/best rate recommendation from you? I don't qualify for the military company, USAA.
Thanks for your help.
