If you would like to save some money on auto insurance then I advise you to not use the AARP Insurance company Hartford. Hartford(AARP) sent me my renewal notice last month and and as ususal I was going to send the payment right away. But as these are hard times I decided to do a little camparision shopping. Amazing what I found.
I searched many sites and many insurance companies and I even went to the AARP insurance page and filled out another application for insurance as a new customer. From Hartdord(AARP) I received a quote of $523 for minimal coverage; basic liabilty for personal injury and property damage, no medical, PIP, collision or comprehensive coverage, no towing or rental coverage. My present Hartford(AARP) policy has liability for personal and property at $27,000/52,000/27,000 and $27,000/52,000/27,000 for underinsured/uninsured motorist with $250 deductible; collision and comprohensive with a $975 deductible, no towing or rental coverage for a whopping $623.
My online search returned me a policy with Electric Insurance Company(a subsidary of GE) with $50,000/100,000/50,000 protection for Bodily Injury & Property Damage, $50,000/100,000/50,000 for underinsured/uninsured motorist with no deductible, collision and comprehensive coverage with a $1000 deductible on both, towing at $50 per tow and rental at $20/day/$600max. There is no Medical payment or PIP on any of the policies. My grand total for the Electric policy is $468.00. $155 less than the original Hartford(AARP) policy and with greater coverage.
I would like to know why a oranization as large as AARP is still recommending an insurance company who is obviously not offering the best plans and rates for it's over 40 million members. With this many members and the ability of AARP to organize this group to bring about social and political change then they surely should be able to get the best rates on insurance for those members.
My suggestion is shop around, the best deal is not always the most convenient deal.
Definitely put yout insurance needs out for bid. If your record is clean, pardon the play on words, but you're in the drivers seat. Don't assume by the name or by the large organization hype. Cha-ching is better in your pocket.
