How to Get Car Insurance Online

The first step is to find out what type of auto insurance you need. Depending upon which state you live in, there may be mandated coverage, usually for liability and property damage. Going beyond state mandated coverage, decide what risks you are willing to assume yourself and which you feel you need insurance coverage for.

Also, you should take into account whether your car is leased or rented. There may be specific provisions in your lease or rental agreements that tell you what type of coverage you must have in order to maintain your agreement.

Then you can get car insurance online by checking a variety of websites, making sure that they can both quote and issue insurance online.

Remember to check a variety of websites, specifically those which offer coverage through multi carriers. In that way you can compare rates and the types of coverage offered. Always make sure you check for discounts. There may be some you weren't even aware of.

Then be sure to have the following information handy when you are ready. You will need the names of each driver being covered, their driver's license number, their dates of birth, the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the car being insured, which is found on the title of the car or inscribed on the driver's side door, as well as its year, make and model.

After you complete the process your credit card will be required so that you can make an instant payment to cover the cost of your new coverage. You will then be able to printout your temporary insurance card and be set to go.
