How Can I Add My Girlfriend to My Car Insurance?

Q: I am getting ready to add my girlfriend to my auto insurance policy. Should I put her on the same plan as me, or should I add her to my homeowners? Thank you. Answer thanks for your time. Have a Merry Christmas and happy Holidays!

 

A: It is true that when you add your girlfriend to your auto plan you are covering her as well. The policy has to be written for both of you both must mention her name specifically in the policy. If you don’t, then your girlfriend can be covered under someone else’s plan and you will have to pay that money out of pocket. Adding her to the plan is a great idea, and you should strongly consider doing it, but you need to make sure that it is the right decision for you and your family.

 

First, when you add a woman to your auto policy, you are creating a new driver, a male, single, and the car will have to pay for two people. If you have a teenager who wants to drive and gets good grades, that coverage can go up to two teenage drivers. You can add more drivers later but adding her now will lower the premium for a lot. This is not something you need to do very often but it is always good to be covered for more than one car.

 

In addition, if your wife or girlfriend has a good driving record and doesn’t get into any accidents, this will also help to get a cheaper rate. Many women are more careful when they are driving and take more safety precautions. This will definitely reflect in their driving records. Keeping a clean driving record is a great way to keep your rates down and help you get discounts.

 

There are ways to add these kinds of women to your auto policy. Some companies allow you to add them after you have bought the vehicle. This is usually done at the time of the purchase. You can also add them at any time up until the policy is actually active. This is a simple process and can save you money.

 

It is also possible to add your girlfriend as an additional driver by purchasing auto insurance online and adding her as a rider. This works just like adding anybody else as a rider. You simply fill out the same information and add her as a driver. You can also do this with other family members as well.

 

If you want the absolute cheapest auto insurance for women you should contact a few different companies and ask them for a quote. You can compare quotes and find the coverage you want at the lowest price. It is also important to note that this kind of coverage does not always offer the most coverage. You should make sure you know what you are looking for before you begin shopping.

 

It is also a good idea to get more than one quote because there can be some differences. This can save you money if you end up with better coverage than you originally wanted. You can even get a discount if you insure more than one vehicle with the same company. This can save you even more money in the long run.

 

It is important to remember that when you add coverage you will also have to change your driving habits. Women usually tend to drive a lot slower than men do. If you want your girlfriend to feel safe on the road you must be a safe driver yourself. When your friend is at the wheel and speeding down the highway, it can be a nightmare for her. By adding her to your insurance policy you can protect her from this possibility.

 

A cheap way to save even more money on your automobile insurance is to add her name to your policy. Many insurance companies offer a good percentage discount for multiple drivers on a single policy. This can save you hundreds of dollars over the course of your life. You can also call the company and get a good idea of the price they would charge for the coverage. By getting a few quotes you will be able to find the cheapest deal possible.

 

Getting coverage for your girlfriend is a smart decision if you think she deserves the same protection as you. She may not need as much coverage because she drives rarely. But having adequate coverage should always be an option. If you are in a situation where you can no longer afford to insure her then you should definitely look into getting coverage for her as well.
