If you’ve seen a spike in what you’re paying for car insurance, well, you’re not alone. A study from the Bureau of Labour showed that auto insurance rates went up 50 percent between 2006 and 2016. But are you paying too much for car insurance? That’s a different question, but the answer could still be yes. Before getting into how to figure this out, there’s something to keep in mind. When figuring out whether you’re paying too much don’t judge your rate against average rates you see online. There’s just too many individual factors that go into your rate for an ‘average’ rate to be meaningful. The real thing you need to find out is whether, given your personal situation, you could be paying a lower rate.
