Surprising Way #1 – Get Married

Yep, generally, marrieds pay less than singles when it comes to their auto insurance premiums. That’s not to say any savings are worth getting married to take advantage of, but it does mean if you have happened to have got married recently, let your insurance agent know. You may get a better rate.
