Arizona Offers Auto Insurance Comparison Guide

March 26, 2007

The Arizona Department of Insurance has released the latest edition of its “Automobile Insurance Premium Comparison” to aid consumers with comparison shopping for auto insurance. The publication contains price quotes from 75 insurers for a dozen different driver scenarios, highlighting the advantages for those who reduce the number of miles driven.

According to the guide, on average, insurers offered a $94 discount for Phoenix residents who took the bus to work, although it noted carpooling or alternate means of transportation could have the same benefit. “At least 36 insurers offer discounts to customers who significantly reduce their annual mileage by taking the bus to work every day,” said Insurance Director Christina Urias. “There are more reasons than ever to give the bus a try — help reduce pollution, avoid the stress of traffic and save money on your auto insurance.”

The guide also includes a summary and explanation of the different types of auto insurance coverage available, and provides insurer complaint ratios, representing the total number of written complaints the Department has received for each 1,000 policy exposures an insurer has in force.
