With Progressive, if you own a high school student in your policy, you can still get a good student discount on your auto insurance. As an additional bonus, if the student is older and not currently out of school and who is still within the state's driving age, you may also qualify for a discount. In order to see how much your rates will go up if you are a high school student, it's best to look online at Progressive's website.
To find out if you qualify to receive a good student discount on auto insurance, fill out the application form online. Then, submit your details and the amount of your premiums. Your application will be reviewed and your quote will be sent to you via email.
When you are approved for a Progressive good student discount, your rates will automatically drop by five percent. This means that your insurance rate can decrease by as much as fifty dollars per year.
The same applies to student discounts at other insurance companies. When you use Progressive's website to find out about your specific student discount benefits, check with your current insurance company to see if they offer a good student discount for new and current drivers. If they do, talk to your agent about taking advantage of it.
In addition to discounts for students, Progressive also offers discounts for senior citizens, veterans and military personnel. They also offer discounts for people who have multiple vehicles or who drive them for a living. For example, if you own a small car that you use for daily driving needs, but you also have a full-sized SUV for work purposes, your Progressive policy will offer a lower rate for you. Likewise, if you own a family vehicle that is driven to school, but you also have an off-campus apartment with a van for your personal car use, you may qualify for a reduced rate.
Remember, though, that Progressive good student discount rates are only available when you are an adult and are at least nineteen years old. They do not apply to anyone who is currently attending college. Also, there is no age requirement to take advantage of this discount – even if you are still a high school student and are already insured on another policy!
As long as you're eligible for a good student discount, there is no need to panic because you don't need to pay anything extra to get this discount. Once you have filled out and submitted your application, it will be processed and the savings will show up in your checking account.
Remember, too, that Progressive has a policy called Youth Discounts. This policy provides discounts to all persons above a certain age (those eighteen or nineteen years old) and has no age requirements.
