When’s the last time you checked car insurance prices?
You should shop your options every six months or so — it could save you some serious money. Let’s be real, though. It’s probably not the first thing you think about when you wake up. And it doesn’t have to be.
A company called Gabi makes it super easy to compare car insurance prices for the same exact coverage you already have. Plus, it makes switching plans a breeze.
Take Lourdes Robles-Velazquez, for example. The single mom of one lives on a tight budget. She was paying $205 a month to insure two Toyota Priuses — hers and her daughter’s.
By using Gabi, Robles-Velazquez shaved $80 off her monthly car insurance bill. That’s nearly $1,000 in savings per year.
See if You Can Knock $80 From Your Own Bill in 2 Minutes
Are wondering if you’ve been overpaying on your car insurance now? (Us too!) Comparing prices through Gabi is super simple. Here’s what you’ll do:
- Head over to Gabi, and answer a few simple questions about yourself, your car and your driving history.
- Link up your insurance account and enter your driver’s license number. (This is totally safe — we’ve done it — and that’s how Gabi gets you a true apples-to-apples comparison.)
- Now, browse your options. If you find a better price, you can switch right there on Gabi’s website.
“Gabi took care of everything,” Robles-Velazquez says. “I gave them the information, and they dealt with the other insurance company.”
You can cancel your existing insurance policy at any time. If you’ve already paid your premium upfront, typically companies will reimburse you. A Gabi rep can help you with the process.
Plus, after you sign up, Gabi will keep looking for savings.
Robles-Velazquez has used Gabi for more than two years now, and she’s switched companies twice, per Gabi’s suggestions. She’s continued to lower her car insurance tab and save even more money.
And to think: This took her two minutes, and she was able to save $80 a month with this strategy! Why not see if you can find a cheaper option?
