What College Graduates Need To Know About Auto Insurance

You’ve proudly watched your child graduate from college (and celebrated the last of the tuition bills!)  Now they’re searching for their first “real” job and ready for a new phase of life.  

This is what you and your new graduate need to know about their insurance.

First, in most situations, they can remain on your auto insurance policy as long as they are living in your household.  If they’ve moved back home while job hunting, you can keep them on your policy.

But once they decide to move out, it’s time to look at other options.  Some of this will depend on who is the owner of the car and if you’re living in the same state.  The best option is to talk to one of our helpful agents to discuss your particular situation in detail.

Remember, regular on-time insurance payments can help your son or daughter establish credit history and even serve as a reference when renting an apartment.

If your graduate is moving out on their own, you’ll also want to get some information on renters insurance.  It will protect their belongings and protect you from any liability for damage they might cause to a residence (even if it’s just an accident, like a small kitchen fire.)  In most cases, a parent is a co-signer for a lease and needs to make sure this protection is in place. Until your child is totally on their own, you can face potentially expensive claims or lawsuits.

The end of college marks some big transitions into adulthood.  Help your new graduate  make smart financial decisions and establish a great start.  We can help!  Schedule a personal review and quote today with SAV-ON Insurance. Call 888-867-2866 or get a quick quote at

Boating Season is Here...Is Your Insurance Enough to Keep You Afloat?

Summer vacation and boating season are just around the corner.  That means it’s time to pull the boat out of storage and get ready to hit the water with friends or family.  But don’t head out until you know that your boat is properly insured!

Here’s what you need to know about boat insurance:

Your auto policy won’t cover your boat (unless you’re driving with it on the trailer.) And just like when you drive a car, you can be held responsible for damage you cause while driving your boat!  That’s why it’s important to have liability coverage.  Imagine causing damage to another boat or a dock and not having any insurance!  It would be a very stressful -- and potentially costly -- situation. 

Beyond liability and bodily injury coverage, boat policies have many great additional coverages that can be added to your policy.  Do you have a fish finder or other special gear?  Even your fancy cooler and fishing equipment could be covered with the right policy.  Your boat insurance can even cover the cost of towing your boat if it breaks down while out on the water.  Just talk to us about how you use your boat and what you typically carry, and we can look for the right options.

You’ve invested a lot of money into your boat or personal watercraft, and you don’t want to put them at risk by not keeping it covered.  Boat insurance is very inexpensive, and will give you peace of mind when you're cruising around.
