Unitrin Direct Announces New Discounts on Auto Insurance Quotes

August 1st, 2007 by Jeannine C

Depending on the state you live in, you may be able to save money on your auto insurance through some new discounts being offered by Unitrin Direct, according to a report on CNN.  Some of the discounts match those already being offered by other companies, but a few take advantage of the internet to increase consumer savings.

The one I like best is Esignature, which knocks $50 off the cost of an insurance policy if the customer signs the documents online.  There are also new discounts for “responsible” and “mature” drivers (translation - safe drivers with good driving records).

Unitrin has finally added a multi-policy discount if you combine your auto insurance and home or renters insurance through their companies.  If you have an anti-theft device on your car, or more than one vehicle you need to cover, you can get a break on your insurance rates too.  Finally, if you can afford to pay your entire premium at on time, there is a discount for that too.

There is nothing new about multi-car or multi-policy discounts, or even the discounts for good drivers or a lump sum payment.  What is great about these new discounts is that they put pressure on the other insurance companies to remain competitive.  Those companies which already offered those discounts now have to make sure that their prices don’t take a back seat to the ones Unitrin Direct is now offering.  That means lower auto insurance rates for all of us.

How can you benefit?  Start by doing all the right things to make yourself eligible for good auto insurance rates - drive sensibly so you don’t get any tickets, choose a car with great safety features like anti-lock brakes, airbags everywhere, and an anti-theft device, and make sure you keep your credit clean.  With all these things in your favor, insurance companies will compete for your business, and you will get the best possible rates for great coverage.

Unitrin Direct is currently one of the companies available through the Insurance-Rates-Online auto insurance system.  It sure can’t hurt to ask for a quote from them when you are ready to compare auto insurance rates.
