No one wants to pay more for their auto insurance than they have to.  Unfortunately, when it comes to your auto insurance, certain missteps will end up costing you significantly.  If you don’t want your car insurance to break the bank, then here are some of the costly mistakes that you should avoid. If you want to switch from one insurer to another, it’s important that you do not cancel your existing policy too early.  This can create a coverage gap that can leave you vulnerable.  For instance, if you canceled your policy a couple of days before you new one started and you got into an accident during this gap, then you would be responsible for all the costs associated with the accident.  So, to ensure that significant costs do not come out of your pocket, make sure that you do not create dangerous coverage gaps.
