Why is auto insurance so important?
When you get behind the wheel, you take a risk. You may attempt to be the best possible driver, but you also have to trust that everyone else on the road is driving well and paying attention too. Auto insurance provides a safety net when drivers make mistakes.

CAN AUTO INSURANCE COMPANIES DROP YOU?
Auto insurance is a contract, and as with many contracts, it can be canceled or voided by either party. You can drop the contract by changing to another company. The following are circumstances in which an insurance company can drop you:
- If you fail to pay your premiums
- If you present fraudulent information on your application for coverage
- If your license is suspended or revoked for any reason, such as too many accidents or driving under the influence
Some states allow companies to drop coverage for other reasons. To learn about the laws in your state, contact us or visit the TrustedChoice.com network in your area.
DO AUTO INSURANCE COMPANIES CHECK DRIVING HISTORY?
An insurance company may check your driving record when you are looking for a new policy, renewing your existing policy or modifying the policy by adding a new driver or additional vehicle.
You may also wonder whether your driving record can prevent you from getting insurance. Your driving record check typically will not prevent you from getting coverage, but it does help the company determine the risk they will take when issuing a policy to you.
DOES AUTO INSURANCE COVER RENTAL CARS?
This is a common question. If you make sure you have your own vehicle covered, do you need to get the special coverage offered at the rental counter if you go on vacation and get a rental car?
You will have to double-check your particular policy, but most policies do provide the same coverage for a rental car that you have for your personal vehicle, unless the rental is being used for business purposes.
It’s always a good idea to check your policy. If you are seeking a new policy, we're always here to help you find one that does cover rentals.
DO AUTO INSURANCE QUOTES AFFECT MY CREDIT?
Car insurance is not a loan application, because while insurance firms validate the loan to assess your liability and financial protection, they do not extend the loan.
A credit review is considered a "soft pull" for a car insurance quote and it does not change your credit rating. Many people are concentrating on eliminating debt and getting caught up on payments so that when
getting a mortgage or a car loan, they can boost their credit ratings and get better rates.
Your credit score will be influenced any time you fill out a credit application, and a good percentage
of your score is based on how much total credit you have and the amount of accounts you have.
In recent years, credit ratings have becomevery relevant as lenders have tightened restrictions.
