Case study: Britny’s experience

When I purchased my 2014 Ford Focus SE, it was important to me to search for the best insurance rate.

I was surprised to learn that the Ford Focus has one of the lowest depreciation values compared to other cars. But that also meant my rates wouldn’t lower as quickly as other cars over time.

It has consistently high safety ratings due to features like the AdvanceTrac ESC and antitheft system which helped lower my premium cost.

I found it useful to ask providers about any partnerships or other discount opportunities that might be available. I took advantage of a college alumni discount, and saved money by telling my provider that I drove less than five miles to work daily.
