Without the need to visit a physical location to get proof of insurance, many people are able to buy both their car and their car insurance from home.

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) July 01, 2013

According to online insurance comparison tool provider Rate Digest, news about “digital insurance cards” will help more people buy cheap car insurance online. The New York Times has recently published an article on the 18th of June explaining what states have currently accepted cell phone based digital insurance proof.

They list the recent ones, state by state, saying “The 18 states that approved electronic proof-of-coverage laws this year (including Arkansas, the state where I live) are: Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Plus, as of this week, legislation was awaiting the signature of governors in three more states: Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin.”

This move toward digital proof-of-insurance is making online car insurance shopping much easier, says Rate Digest. It is no longer necessary in many states (now 25) to visit an insurance agent or have insurance proof delivered through snail mail. Without the need to visit a physical location to get proof of insurance, many people are able to buy both their car and their car insurance from home.

Rate Digest thinks this is for the best. It will only make it easier on people to shop around, as insurance comparison online is many times easier than visiting individual agents. Because they know that eventually people will want a faster way of shopping than normal websites can provide, Rate Digest has constructed a comparison tool. This tool can significantly shorten the time needed to shop around for cheap car insurance.
