Myth #2: Your Credit Score Doesn’t Affect Your Rate

Your auto insurance provider weighs numerous factors, including your credit score, to assess your driving risk and to calculate your premium. Your insurance quote will most likely do a “soft check” of your credit score which won’t affect your credit. But it is enough information for the insurance company to add to their list of items to look at while determining your auto rate and risk factor.

Myth #3: Older Drivers Are Charged Higher Premiums

Because of the discounts that are available to experienced drivers, mature drivers often pay less for their coverage. However, as we do get older and older, premiums can potentially rise.

Myth #4: If You Drive for a Rideshare Company, Your Personal Insurance Policy Is Enough

If your vehicle is used for commercial purposes, your personal insurance policy may not cover an accident that happens while you’re on the clock. Some Rideshare companies do offer coverage for their drivers. It is SO IMPORTANT to confirm what coverage, if any, they offer. Ask about when the coverage starts and stops during your on-the-clock time. You may need “Rideshare” coverage for your personal policy. Call your auto agent and your Rideshare company to verify what you need, what you have.

Myth #5: The Color of Your Car Affects Your Premium

Your vehicle’s make, model, year and options affect your premium, along with many other factors; its color does not affect your premium.
