Rate Digest suggests that drivers with teens soon to be behind the wheel should get a quote from their insurance provider and then shop online for other options.

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) July 08, 2013

According to insurance comparison tool provider Rate Digest, a recent article published on July the 1st by Aol Autos (autos.aol.com) highlights the need for more comparison shopping. The article, asserts Rate Digest, indicates a greater than normal need to shop around when a parent wishes to get their teen driver(s) insured for decent rates.

Rate Digest cites the article to support their claim, which says, “Adding a teen driver to your policy can increase your annual premium by 84 percent (about $2,000) on average, according to a study from InsuranceQuotes.com. But that number can be much higher or lower depending on where you live. The study found that it cost the most to add a teen driver to an existing policy in the following five states: Arkansas (116 percent increase), Utah (115 percent), Wyoming (112 percent), Alabama (111 percent) and Idaho (107 percent).”

Because it costs so much to add a teen onto an existing policy, says Rate Digest, many people would not do badly by shopping around before they commit to a higher policy. Rate Digest suggests that drivers with teens soon to be behind the wheel should get a quote from their insurance provider and then shop online for other options. Even if the parents of a soon to be teen driver don't find a better price, nothing is lost for looking, explains Rate Digest.
